Report: Two injured starters on defense hit practice field for Packers

CREATED Oct. 3, 2013 - UPDATED: Oct. 3, 2013

A Packers linebacker and defensive back reportedly are taking part in more practice activity than they did Thursday as they recover from injuries.

According to the Journal Sentinel's Tom Silverstein:

Matthews suffered a hamstring injury in the Packers' 34-30 loss at Cincinnati two weeks ago. He could be available for Sunday's showdown against Detroit after limited practice time Wednesday.

McCarthy spoke later about Matthews' availability, showing his optimism for Sunday.

Hayward has not played a down this season due to his hamstring issue. He has been ruled out for Sunday's game with the Lions.
