Matthews tweeted that he suffered a broken nose and will require surgery.
Thank you for all the concern and well-wishes. I busted my nose pretty good and will have surgery once the swelling subsides. Thankful as it could have been much more serious 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼— Clay Matthews III (@ClayMatthews52) June 2, 2018
Packers players have put on a softball game annually at the home of the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers, a minor league affiliate of the Milwaukee Brewers. The game has been hosted by Brett Favre, Donald Driver and Jordy Nelson over the years. Matthews and Davante Adams took over as co-hosts this year after Nelson was cut.
Adams told spectators that Matthews "got a little boo-boo on his nose." The game resumed without Matthews, who was pitching at the time.
