Newly acquired wide receiver Jordan Matthews is considered “week-to-week” after suffering a chest injury in his first practice with the Bills.
Multiple reports say Matthews suffered a chip fracture in his sternum on Sunday.
The Bills traded for Matthews last week after jettisoning Sammy Watkins to the Rams. Ironically, Buffalo travels to Philadelphia on Thursday for a preseason game.
There are no immediate details on how Matthews sustained the injury.
The Bills sent cornerback Ronald Darby to the Eagles for Matthews and a 2018 third-round pick.
Who put the Packers, Ravens and Steelers on the Browns’ December schedule? That’s brutal, and normally around this time of year, Cleveland is out of the hunt. The Browns are 21-63 since 1999 in December, a winning percentage of .250. That includes one December win in each of the last four seasons.
We’re willing to take a glass-half-full approach with the Browns. Cleveland won either four or five games over six straight seasons from 2008-13. That stretch in late October to early November against the Titans, Vikings, Lions and Jaguars will be a chance to increase that win total and show progress in Jackson’s second season.
Book-ending the schedule on both sides with the Steelers wasn’t exactly a nice touch. Of course, we’re taking a disclaimer considering we’re still not 100 percent sure who Cleveland’s quarterback will be in 2017.
There wasn’t a hunka hunka burning love for Grbac in Baltimore after the 2000 Super Bowl champions splurged to sign the Chiefs Pro Bowler at a then-rich five years for $30 million. He went an OK 8-6, but that was more because of their defense. He only gave the offense 3,033 yards and 15 touchdowns. He was released right after the season and retired soon afterward at age 31.
