. - The New York Rangers have momentum, a unified locker room and Henrik Lundqvist.GREEN BAY, Wis. - While his teammates are getting ready for their Monday Night Football showdown with Chicago, Clay Matthews will be at the doctors office. The Green Bay Packers standout linebacker hasnt played since breaking his right thumb against Detroit on Oct. 6, but when he gets the pins removed from the thumb on Monday - a fact he confirmed Wednesday - he will be one step closer to returning to the field. He wont play against the Bears, but if he can return Nov. 10 against Philadelphia, he will have missed only four games. The Packers take a four-game winning streak into Monday nights game at Lambeau Field, with three of those victories coming with their star defensive player sidelined. "Ive been very impressed with our team. Its not just about me," Matthews said. "Theres a bunch of other guys on this team and theyve been doing a fantastic job, specifically speaking on defence, getting pressure on the quarterback. Its good to see." Despite playing without Matthews, the Packers are tied for 10th in the NFL with 23 sacks entering this weeks games. Matthews, who has 45.5 career regular-season sacks in four-plus seasons, had three sacks at the time of his injury, which occurred as he was sacking Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford. Not only have the Packers played without Matthews, but fellow starting outside linebacker Nick Perry has missed the last two games with a foot injury, and starting inside linebacker Brad Jones has been out since suffering a hamstring injury the same day Matthews broke his thumb. "I look forward to the time when we get all of our troops together at the same time," defensive co-ordinator Dom Capers said. "I think what were going through now is these guys are gaining experience. Well be able to use that experience over the second half of the season." As well as the Packers defeence has played without Matthews - in the three games hes missed, the unit has registered 11 sacks and 61 total points - Matthews said hes not going to be extra careful with the injury and wait any longer than the doctors make him wait.

. "Im not a patient guy, as you guys are well aware," Matthews said. "Ill never learn to be patient. Its difficult because with most rehab injuries you feel as if youre getting better and working toward something, but with this its obviously a different case. I kind of have to wait for doctors opinions and specific procedures in order to take the field. Thats what is the most frustrating." Matthews said he had hoped to play through the injury wearing a club cast to protect the hand. But because of the type of injury he sustained, he had no choice but to have surgery. Matthews suffered a Bennett fracture, in which the first metacarpal bone at the base of the thumb breaks away from the joint, leaving behind a fragment that remains attached to one of the ligaments in the thumb joint. If not surgically repaired, the injury can lead to permanent problems, such as reduced grip strength in the hand. "I was all for it (playing), but there was no way around it with (what) these doctors were telling me the possible risks were as well as future life after football as far as my hand and what could happen," Matthews said. "I definitely would like to push through it. I feel like I could and Id be able to. Pain is not an issue for me. Its more so about being smart - and at times Im not the smartest." Matthews said he didnt really feel much pain when it happened and wasnt even sure how the injury occurred. "When you break a bone in your hand, especially with the adrenaline running, you dont really feel it until afterward when the pain kicks in," Matthews said. ' ' '
