Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews was pitching in a team charity softball game in Wisconsin, when lineman Lucas Patrick smacked a line-drive that nailed him IN THE FACE.
He fell down, popped back up and walked off the field, while covering his face with his glove.
He went to the hospital and is doing okay but he does need to get surgery once the swelling goes down.

Thank you for all the concern and well-wishes. I busted my nose pretty good and will have surgery once the swelling subsides. Thankful as it could have been much more serious 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼— Clay Matthews III (@ClayMatthews52) June 2, 2018
