Matthews up for challenge as Packers rally without Rodgers

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) In the visiting locker room after Green Bay lost to the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday, the Packers spoke of how they'd rally behind backup Brett Hundley in the absence of injured quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

Not linebacker Clay Matthews. He called Rodgers' broken collarbone - a potentially season-ending injury - "disheartening." With injuries atop of injuries, Matthews said the "next-man up" mentality was "being thrown to the wolves."

On Thursday, Matthews struck a more optimistic tone as the Packers get ready for Sunday's home game against the New Orleans Saints.
