Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews returned to practice on Monday after recovering from a knee injury, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Matthews, who missed the last week of practice because of discomfort in his knee, said that practice went well but he is still questionable for the team's preseason game against the New England Patriots on Thursday. "You know what, any opportunity to be out there, especially in regards to preseason games, I think is very important," Matthews said Monday. "But there's always other factors that go along with that." The 29-year-old will not play Thursday if there is a risk of injury, as he is a key member of the defense. Matthews had one of the best all-around statistical seasons of his career last year, totaling 11 sacks, 71 total tackles, two forced fumbles and an interception in 16 starts, earning his fifth Pro Bowl selection.

Matthews will continue to play multiple positions in 2015, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Coach Mike McCarthy was queried on the subject during Thursday's media availability, and he essentially confirmed that the Packers will continue to utilize the versatile Matthews at both inside and outside linebacker. "Clay Matthews is a great pass rusher," McCarthy said. "He's going to continue to play as many different positions as we can get out of him. We need to utilize him as much as we can." Matthews has been used in various roles since entering the league in 2009, and he's posted double-digit sack numbers in four of his six NFL seasons. After recording 7.5 sacks in 2013 (11 games), Matthews rebounded with 11.0 in 2014 to go with a career-best 61 combined tackles.

Matthews tallied six tackles (five solo) and a sack in Sunday's loss to the Seahawks.

Matthews sat with just 1.5 sacks after the Packers' first seven games, but he recorded at least one sack in eight of the Packers' final 11 contests (including the playoffs). Matthews had been almost exclusively an edge rusher prior to 2014, but he found a lot of success playing both inside and outside linebacker over the latter portion of the season, so it wouldn't be surprising to see him play some type of hybrid role again in 2015.

Matthews tallied three tackles (all solo), a sack, and a pass deflection in Sunday's victory over the Lions.

Matthews sat with just one sack after six weeks, but he tallied 10 sacks the rest of the way and ended the regular season on a tear, racking up 6.5 sacks over his final four games. Though the sack numbers were impressive, Matthews' best ability in 2014 may have been his availability, as he played in all 16 games for the first time since his rookie season of 2009.
