Rams' Clay Matthews has broken jaw, out for at least a month

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. (AP) — Los Angeles Rams linebacker Clay Matthews will be out for several weeks after breaking his jaw during their loss to the Seattle Seahawks.

Rams coach Sean McVay revealed the injury Friday.

The Rams think Matthews was hurt late in the game Thursday night when Seattle running back Chris Carson inadvertently kicked him in the face.

Matthews needs surgery that will sideline him for at least a month, McVay says. The Rams have three more games before their bye.

Matthews is off to an excellent start in his first season with his hometown team following 10 seasons with Green Bay.

Matthews has six sacks in his first five games, including the only sack by either team in the Rams' 30-29 loss at Seattle.
