PACKERS' LINEBACKER CLAY MATTHEWS NEEDS SURGERY AFTER THIS HIT

Packers linebacker Clay Matthews needs surgery after taking a line drive to the face during a charity softball game yesterday.

Matthews took a line drive to the face in a freak occurrence and immediately covered his nose with his glove while he walked off the field.

The crowd were stunned, not completely sure what happened other than the star line-backer being hit in the face, but later in the day he shared what happened via Twitter; "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."
