Matthews Questionable For Sunday

Posted Dec 12, 2015

Just one day after the entire Eagles team was declared probable for Sunday's game with the Bills, there has been a change.

Wide receiver Jordan Matthews was added to the injury report on Saturday with a back ailment. His status for the game is questionable. Last week, nose tackle Bennie Logan was added on Saturday ahead of the matchup with the New England Patriots and played.

Matthews is the team's leading receiver with 61 catches for 661 yards and four touchdowns on the year. He's also been on the field more than any other receiver for the Eagles. He's played 683 snaps (79 percent). Nelson Agholor is the only other wide receiver who has played more than 50 percent of the snaps with 441 (51 percent).

A player to watch if Matthews is unable to play his full complement of snaps is tight end Zach Ertz. He is the second-most targeted pass-catching option (63) and has 40 receptions for 403 yards and a touchdown on the year.

Bills Without Two Starters On Defense

Cornerback Stephon Gilmore (shoulder) and linebacker Nigel Bradham (ankle) have been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Eagles. According to BuffaloBills.com, Leodis McKelvin will start for Gilmore and Kevin Reddick for Bradham.

In addition, Buffalo will be without backup running back Karlos Williams due to a shoulder injury. Williams is second on the team with 376 yards rushing at a gaudy 5.7 yards per carry this season.
