Eagles WR Matthews misses OTAs with tendinitis


  • According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, Eagles wide receiver Jordan Matthews has missed the past week of OTAs. He is dealing with knee tendinitis and his absence is being considered precautionary.
  • At 73.7, Matthews graded as the 56th best wide receiver out 115 eligible in 2016. This was on par with both his 2014 (76.9) and 2015 (68.6) seasons.
  • Matthews has primarily played in the slot throughout his career. 85 percent of his routes run throughout his career have been out of the slot. Since entering the league in 2014 Matthews has never finished lower the sixth in yards per route run from the slot.
  • Since 2014, no other receiver has been targeted more or has more receiving yards from the slot than Matthews.
