GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) – Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews will miss his third game in a row due to a hamstring injury.

The Packers say Matthews will have to sit out this Sunday’s game against the Tennessee Titans.

Coach Mike McCarthy says he’s not concerned about Matthews, and that he’s “making progress.”

In Matthews’ absence, the Packers will rely on Nick Perry and Julius Peppers.

McCarthy said tight end Jared Cook, running back James Starks, and cornerback Damarious Randall are also making progress. However, there’s a chance none of them will be available to play on Sunday. Cook is listed as doubtful with an ankle injury, and Starks is questionable with a knee injury.

Randall will sit out Sunday’s game with a groin injury. Corner/guard JC Tretter is also out of the game with a knee injury.

Defensive back Micah Hyde is questionable for Sunday’s game with a shoulder injury.
