Los Angeles Rams linebacker Clay Matthews will miss at least a month after suffering a broken jaw.

The Rams' defense has not been great over the past two weeks and they are about to be short-handed.

Matthews suffered a broken jaw in Thursday's 30-29 loss to the Seattle Seahawks and needs surgery, coach Sean McVay told reporters on Friday.

It is unclear exactly when Matthews suffered the injury but it could have come on a questionable roughing-the-passer call in the waning moments of the game.

Matthews, 33, has six sacks in five games for the Rams this season.

He signed a two-year deal with Los Angeles before the season after spending his previous 10 years with the Green Bay Packers.
