Green Bay Packers first-round draft pick Nick Perry was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reported. The rookie linebacker out of USC underwent wrist surgery this week and is out for the season.
Defenses loaded up against Matthews with no pass-rush threat from the other side. Perry had two sacks in six games, while Matthews returned to form with nine. However, Matthews has only one sack in the three games since Perry went down in Week 6.
