Bills placed WR Jordan Matthews on injured reserve with a knee injury, ending his season.

Matthews had been trying to play through a right knee issue for the past month. The move ends a comprehensively awful first year in Buffalo. The ex-Eagle managed just 25 catches in 10 games after averaging five grabs per game in Philly. His health surely played a part, as he's been battling injuries (chest and thumb in addition to the knee) since the middle of training camp. Matthews also has a long history of knee problems. The 2014 second-rounder is headed to free agency, and will be far from a guarantee to remain in Buffalo.

Jordan Matthews caught 1-of-3 targets for 14 yards in the Bills' Week 13 loss to the Patriots.

Matthews has now posted more than 30 yards three times in 10 games. Perhaps his fortunes will improve with Nathan Peterman under center. Whomever is at quarterback, Matthews is miles from fantasy relevance.

Jordan Matthews (knee) is active for Week 13 against the Patriots.

Matthews, who has posted more than 30 yards three times in nine games as a Bill, will be ready for his usual role. Inactive for the Bills are WR Kelvin Benjamin, TE Nick O'Leary, LT Cordy Glenn, RB Mike Tolbert, CB Shareece Wright, OT Conor McDermott and OG John Miller.

Jordan Matthews (knee) is questionable for Week 13 against the Patriots.

Matthews should be good to go after getting in a limited week of practice. He's been held under 30 yards in four of his last five games and hasn't scored a touchdown since Week 4. Even with Kelvin Benjamin (knee) sitting, Matthews won't be a recommended option for the final week of the fantasy regular season.

Jordan Matthews caught 2-of-3 targets for 15 yards in Buffalo's Week 12 win over Kansas City.

Matthews was limited to three-wide sets coming off his knee injury. He finished behind both Zay Jones (10) and Charles Clay (4) in targets. Matthews hasn't look on the same page with Tyrod Taylor all year. Buffalo could get Kelvin Benjamin (knee) back next week.

Jordan Matthews (knee) is active for Week 12 against the Chiefs.

Charles Clay (knee) is also active for Buffalo. Matthews is back after sitting out last week's game with a knee injury. WR Kelvin Benjamin, OT Cordy Glenn, OT Conor McDermott, OG John Miller, TE Logan Thomas, FB Mike Tolbert and CB Shareece Wright are all inactive for Week 12.
Sun, Nov 26, 2017 11:49:00 AM

Jordan Matthews (questionable, knee) is expected to play Week 12 against the Chiefs.

Matthews was a surprise scratch last week at Los Angeles but that won't happen this time around. The contract-year wideout has been held under 25 yards in four of his last five outings with only one touchdown during that span. Even with Kelvin Benjamin (knee) on the shelf this week, he should be riding the pine in fantasy.

Jordan Matthews (knee) is questionable for Week 12 against the Chiefs.

Matthews was absent for last week's game in Los Angeles but should be active Sunday at KC after getting in a limited week of practice. He may see a slightly bigger workload with Kelvin Benjamin (questionable, knee) a long shot to play, though his fantasy prospects remain limited playing on a run-first Bills offense.
Fri, Nov 24, 2017 01:14:00 PM

Jordan Matthews (knee) remained "limited" in Thursday's practice.

Matthews got in "limited" practices last week before being a "surprise" scratch against the Chargers. With Kelvin Benjamin (knee) likely to miss Sunday's game against the Chiefs, Matthews will be pushed harder to play in Week 12.
Thu, Nov 23, 2017 02:21:00 PM

Jordan Matthews (knee) is inactive for Week 11 against the Chargers.

Coach Sean McDermott was "optimistic" Matthews would play through his questionable tag, but it's not the case. Kelvin Benjamin and Zay Jones will be the top two receivers, with Deonte Thompson and others mixing in behind them. Also inactive for the Bills are CB Shareece Wright, OG John Miller, OT Connor McDermott, RB Mike Tolbert, LT Cordy Glenn, and TE Logan Thomas.

Jordan Matthews (knee) is questionable for Week 11 against the Chargers.

Matthews was limited at practice this week but should see his usual snaps Sunday in L.A. With unproven Nathan Peterman under center, Matthews won't be more than a last-gasp WR4 for Week 11.
Fri, Nov 17, 2017 02:25:00 PM

Jordan Matthews (knee) remained limited at Thursday's practice.

We suspect the Bills are just managing his practice reps. Facing a fierce Chargers secondary on the road with a rookie quarterback under center, Matthews has a lot going against him this week. Fantasy owners should let him ride the pine this week.
Thu, Nov 16, 2017 03:00:00 PM

Jordan Matthews (knee) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Matthews has long battled knee soreness. He should be fine for Sunday in L.A. against the Chargers, but Matthews is a low-upside WR4 desperation play.
Wed, Nov 15, 2017 03:01:00 PM

Jordan Matthews hauled in 1-of-2 targets for 14 yards in the Bills' Week 10 loss to the Saints.

With the offense stuck in neutral, Matthews was not targeted in the first half and his first catch did not come until deep into garbage time. With Kelvin Benjamin looking like the clear No. 1 receiver and Charles Clay back in the lineup, Matthews is not a must-own in standard redraft leagues.
