Hawk flying high at linebacker for Packers

AP Sports Writer

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - Amid all the injuries at linebacker, A.J. Hawk has been a steady presence for the Green Bay Packers.

Hawk is coming off one his best games in a while after recording 10 tackles and three sacks in last week's 19-17 win over the Ravens.

When the Browns visit Green Bay this weekend, Hawk could be the only healthy linebacker left from the foursome that started the season.

Clay Matthews is out a couple more weeks with thumb injury. Fellow outside linebacker Nick Perry could miss a couple weeks with an injured foot. Inside linebacker Brad Jones has a sore hamstring.

Coach Mike McCarthy says he values Hawk's consistency. Tackle Ryan Pickett calls Hawk a reliable teammate who never panics.
