GREEN BAY — The Green Bay Packers say linebacker Clay Matthews will miss the game Sunday against the Tennessee Titans because of a lingering hamstring injury.

Coach Mike McCarthy ruled Matthews out on Friday. The Packers’ best pass rusher will be sidelined a third straight game, and a fourth overall this season.

McCarthy also says that receiver Randall Cobb won’t be limited for Sunday’s game. Cobb hurt his hamstring last month. The Packers were cautious with how they used Cobb in last week’s loss to the Indianapolis Colts.

With a 4-4 record, the Packers face an important contest at Tennessee. Green Bay will play their next three games on the road.
