Green Bay Packers LB Clay Matthews (thumb) will have the pins removed from his thumb Nov. 4, and he could return the following week to face the Philadelphia Eagles Nov. 10. His hand was in a cast Sunday, Oct. 27, and he has been diagnosed with a Bennett's fracture, which is a break at the base of the thumb. "I'm hoping for the best, but it was a unique break," Matthews said. "I'm praying for the best when they take (the pins) out. It could be as early as Philadelphia. It could be as late as Thanksgiving (at Detroit). Hopefully, there's nothing unforeseen when they do that."
