Matthews: Too early to tell if I’ll play in preseason

Posted by Chris Brown on August 21, 2017 – 11:49 am

Bills WR Jordan Matthews, who spoke with the media for the first time Sunday, about his current status following the chip fracture in his sternum is optimistic about being ready to go for the season opener Sept. 10th for the Jets. As for the two remaining preseason games that’s a bit tougher call at this point.

“Playing in the preseason, that’s going to be a little bit of a harder guestimate because they’re going to want to feel comfortable and confident, that I’m going to be able to out there and not only perform, but also come out healthy,” said Matthews. “It’s a game that doesn’t count, essentially. It still matters, it just doesn’t count. So, if a game doesn’t count towards your record, obviously, the coaches, the training staff and me included, we all have to be smart about it.”

Eagles WR Matthews now questionable

Posted by Chris Brown on December 12, 2015 – 2:30 pm

The Eagles looked pretty good health-wise heading into Sunday’s game with the Bills. That is until today. Philadelphia added WR Jordan Matthews to their injury report listing him as questionable with a back injury.

Matthews not only leads the Eagles in receptions, receiving yards and receiving touchdowns, he’s been on the field more than any other receiver for Philadelphia this season.

If Matthews is unable to play that could even things up knowing the Bills are without their top cornerback Stephon Gilmore, who was declared out on Friday with a shoulder injury.

Big WRs will get Senior Bowl attention

Posted by johnmurphyshow on January 20, 2014 – 2:20 pm

If you’re one of those who think the Bills should be shopping for a big wide receiver in the draft this year, you may want to keep an eye on the receivers at the Senior Bowl.
In particular, Vanderbilt’s Jordan Matthews seems to be the top receiver among the group assembled in Mobile this week.
Matthews and his teammates on the South team will take the field Monday afternoon at Fairhope Stadium outside Mobile for their first Senior Bowl workout
He’s 6-3, 206 pounds, and he made 201 catches over the last two seasons for the Vanderbilt Commodores.
And Matthews leaves Vanderbilt as the all time leader in receptions in the SEC, with 262 catches.
He’s been compared to long time Colts standout Reggie Wayne.
Bills scouts at the Senior Bowl will no doubt have their eyes trained on Matthews when the workouts commence.
And there’s this–Matthews cousin is Jerry Rice.
