"Yes, I plan to play; I'll be out there this Sunday," Fox Sports quotes Matthews as saying.
"The first part of getting over a hamstring strain is healing and, obviously, I can't control that. Coming back, the final hurdle you have to overcome is, 'mentally are you comfortable with exerting 100% effort or even more so?' I wouldn't put myself out there if I wasn't.
"Coming in on Monday, I felt good. I obviously had to prove to myself and to the coaches that I'm capable of not only being able to run and cut and do everything I need to, but do it at a high level to where it won't affect this defense. So, I feel good about it. I don't think you'll see a drop-off come Sunday."
Matthews had started all three Packers games this season before last week's bye round.
