Patriots WR Jordan Matthews is dealing with what NFL Network's Ian Rapoport calls a "significant" hamstring injury. Matthews went down in practice on Sunday and hasn't been back on the field since. He had been considered the favorite to step in during Julian Edelman's 4-game suspension, but this injury throws a wrench in those plans.

Bills WR Jordan Matthews announced Tuesday that he underwent knee and ankle surgeries. He's dealt with knee tendonitis for the better part of the past 2 years and missed 2 games with an ankle injury last season -- although it's unclear if the surgeries are related to either. Regardless, Matthews has had all sorts of trouble staying healthy, also fracturing his sternum and breaking his thumb this year. He's set to hit free agency in March.

Bills WR Jordan Matthews needs thumb surgery and is expected to miss "at least" a month, according to insider Sal Capaccio. It's believed Matthews broke the thumb in Sunday's win over the Falcons, although that hasn't been confirmed by the team.

The Bills announced Monday that WR Jordan Matthews is "week to week" with a chip fracture in his sternum. Matthews suffered the injury Sunday in his 1st practice since joining the team via trade. The week-to-week prognosis suggests that we should expect Matthews to miss at least the rest of this week's workouts. Anything beyond that, and he'll be running short on time to get acclimated before the regular season.

Eagles WR Jordan Matthews will be limited at the start of training camp as he continues to deal with knee tendinitis, HC Doug Pederson said Monday. Matthews dealt with the issue throughout the offseason program. Pederson doesn't expect the problem to stretch into the regular season, but it bears monitoring over the next few weeks. Matthews has missed just 2 games through 3 NFL seasons and has just a 14% chance to miss time in 2017, according to our algorithms.
