The Green Bay Packers expect star linebacker Clay Matthews to play Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings.

Matthews, whose switch to inside linebacker the last two games has been a boon for a previously struggling defense, has been dealing with a recurring groin injury. Matthews said Thursday he was a little sore after Green Bay's 53-20 rout of Philadelphia last Sunday.

Matthews was limited Wednesday due to a groin injury.

Coach Mike McCarthy relayed Wednesday that his star linebacker didn't have "high concern" about the injury.

Matthews is probable with a groin injury Thursday.

Matthews has been a full participant all week at practice.

Matthews (groin) practiced on a limited basis Wednesday after getting hurt against Detroit.

He should play Sunday against the Bears.
