PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Jordan Matthews was so excited to return to the Philadelphia Eagles again that he picked up his young son and ran around the house.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The Philadelphia Eagles turned to a familiar face to bolster their depleted receivers corps.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — New England waived Kenny Britt on Wednesday, ending the wide receiver's underwhelming stay with the Patriots.
Despite losing Danny Amendola in free agency and knowing Julian Edelman will be suspended for the first four games of the regular season, the Patriots let go of the 29-year-old Britt, who was with his fourth team. New England also had released Jordan Matthews and Malcolm Mitchell from its receiving corps.
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Tom Brady has thrown touchdown passes to many receivers during his 18 NFL seasons. He'll likely be adding new names to the list.
The Patriots receiving corps took a hit this offseason: the trade of Brandin Cooks to the Rams; the free-agency departure of Danny Amendola to Miami; and Julian Edelman's suspension for the first four games for a drug-policy violation.
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — The New England Patriots signed wide receiver Jordan Matthews as they continue jumbling their corps of targets for Tom Brady.
Matthews, 25, has played four NFL seasons, three with the Eagles and last season with the Bills (2017). In 56 NFL games with 42 starts, he has 250 receptions for 2,955 yards and 20 touchdowns.

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — The Buffalo Bills have placed wide receiver Jordan Matthews and defensive end Shaq Lawson on injured reserve, ending their seasons.
Both starters had difficult seasons for Buffalo, dealing with injuries and inconsistent play.
Matthews was acquired in a preseason trade with Philadelphia and was expected to become one of Buffalo's top options in the passing game following the trade of Sammy Watkins.
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — Bills receiver Jordan Matthews isn't going to let a broken right thumb prevent him from making a few catches when his other hand works just fine.
Though not yet cleared for practice, Matthews spent time catching passes solely with his left hand on the sideline Monday, after the Bills held a brief session upon returning from their bye week.
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — The Buffalo Bills' passing game has had enough difficulty through the first month of the season.
The challenge may grow for the NFL's 31st-ranked passing offense.
The Bills (3-1) will be without top receiver Jordan Matthews for several weeks because of a broken right thumb. That places more pressure on an unheralded group of receivers that has already dealt with adversity this season.
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — Buffalo Bills starting receiver Jordan Matthews and starting linebacker Ramon Humber are out indefinitely because of broken thumbs for a team already lacking experienced depth.
Coach Sean McDermott says the two will require surgery after both were hurt in a 23-17 win at Atlanta on Sunday.
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — Zay Jones gave himself 24 hours to get over the final moments of Sunday's loss to the Carolina Panthers, when a potential game-winning touchdown pass glanced off his fingertips and fell to the ground.
It looks as if it will take a whole lot longer to fix the Buffalo Bills' passing attack, with a new-look receiving group that has stalled to open the season.
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The Eagles lost starting cornerback Ronald Darby and kicker Caleb Sturgis for several weeks in Sunday's 30-17 win at Washington.
Darby suffered a gruesome right ankle injury and was carted off the field. However, it appears the injury won't end his season. Reports say an MRI on Monday revealed no ligament damage, meaning Darby could return within six weeks. Coach Doug Pederson said the team is still gathering information on the injury.
BUFFALO BILLS (7-9)
New faces: WRs Jordan Matthews, Andre Holmes and rookie Zay Jones; safeties Micah Hyde and Jordan Poyer; CBs rookie Tre'Davious White, E.J. Gaines and Shareece Wright; OLs Vlad Ducasse and rookie Dion Dawkins; FBs Patrick DiMarco and Mike Tolbert; QB T.J. Yates and rookie Nathan Peterman; PK Stephen Hauschka; coach Sean McDermott; general manager Brandon Beane.
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — Getting traded by the Philadelphia Eagles wasn't easy on receiver Jordan Matthews. Getting hurt in his first practice with the Buffalo Bills didn't help.
Putting his emotions and frustrations aside, Matthews vowed Sunday that he'll be healthy, ready and focused to play in the season opener against the New York Jets in three weeks.
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Ronald Darby needed little time to make a strong impression.
The third-year cornerback acquired by the Philadelphia Eagles from the Buffalo Bills on Friday made a nifty interception during one-on-one drills Monday and knocked down another pass in the end zone a bit later.
"He's a tremendous athlete," coach Doug Pederson said.
PITTSFORD, N.Y. (AP) — The revamped group of Buffalo Bills receivers is suddenly down a key addition with Jordan Matthews sidelined indefinitely because of a chip fracture in his sternum.
PITTSFORD, N.Y. (AP) — Jordan Matthews' first chance to fill Sammy Watkins' starting job with the Buffalo Bills ended with the newly acquired receiver sustaining a chest injury.
Matthews finished the two-hour practice on Sunday before being escorted off the field by a trainer. The Bills were unable to provide an update on the nature or severity of the injury because Matthews was still being evaluated.
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — The Buffalo Bills' offseason overhaul isn't over yet now that receiver Sammy Watkins and cornerback Ronald Darby became the latest players to be sent packing.
The Bills dealt both starters in separate blockbuster trades on Friday in an effort to reshape the roster under new coach Sean McDermott.
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The Philadelphia Eagles suddenly seem loaded at wide receiver.
After signing Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith in the offseason and adding Mack Hollins and Shelton Gibson in the draft, Carson Wentz has more accomplished and talented options.
Jeffery, Smith and the rookies join Jordan Matthews, who has been a productive slot receiver, and 2015 first-round pick Nelson Agholor, who is having an excellent camp.
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The Philadelphia Eagles are 5-9, have glaring weaknesses and several holes to fill during the offseason.
Still, they may not be too far away based on six losses in one-score games.
Every NFL team can play the "what if" game and come up with more wins, but the Eagles could point to one play that would've changed the outcome in five different losses.
"It seems like it comes down to one or two plays every game," Carson Wentz said. "We just need to keep building on our success."
BALTIMORE (AP) — Doug Pederson decided to go for the win, mainly because he had nothing to lose.
In a season filled with defeats, the Philadelphia Eagles were presented with the opportunity Sunday to pull off an upset.
All they had to do to beat the Baltimore Ravens was to cover 2 measly yards on one play.
After rookie quarterback Carson Wentz ran for a touchdown to get Philadelphia to 27-26 with 4 seconds left, Pederson used his last timeout.
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Aaron Rodgers showed Carson Wentz what an elite quarterback can do for his team.
The two-time NFL MVP had a dazzling performance in a game the Green Bay Packers desperately needed to win. The rookie QB was inconsistent and made a costly mistake for the Philadelphia Eagles.
Rodgers had 313 yards passing and threw two touchdown passes to Davante Adams to help the Packers beat the Eagles 27-13 Monday night, snapping a four-game losing streak.
The trying times for constructing fantasy lineups appear to be over: most of your better players should be available in Week 12.
Of course, injuries and tough individual matchups always make it a challenge to set the ideal lineup. And with the fantasy playoffs getting closer, there seems to be more pressure surrounding every move.
Don't go crazy second-guessing yourself. Your first instinct when making a tight decision is often your better one.
NEW YORK (AP) — Tennessee left tackle Taylor Lewan and Atlanta rookie safety Keanu Neal drew hefty fines from the NFL on Friday for their actions last weekend.
Lewan was docked $30,387 for making contact with an official, a fine he says he will appeal. Neal was fined $24,309 for his helmet-to-helmet hot on Eagles wide receiver Jordan Matthews.
Washington defensive lineman Cullen Jenkins' roughing-the-passer penalty on Minnesota's Sam Bradford cost him $18,231.
After weeks of frustration, the Philadelphia Eagles' top fantasy options going into the season — Jordan Matthews and Ryan Mathews — finally managed to put together a game in which both produced for their owners, something we haven't been treated to since Week 1.
The fantasy football waiver wire won't be as active the next couple days compared with last week, when a plethora of injuries resulted in role changes throughout the NFL.
The bye weeks begin in Week 4 with the Eagles and Packers idle, meaning no Aaron Rodgers, Jordy Nelson, Eddie Lacy or Jordan Matthews. Owners of Delanie Walker, Antonio Gates, Sammy Watkins, Dez Bryant, Willie Snead and Michael Floyd may need to find replacements on waivers pending the status of their injuries.
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Carson Wentz threw for 301 yards and two touchdowns, a fierce defense shut down Ben Roethlisberger and Antonio Brown and the Philadelphia Eagles beat the Pittsburgh Steelers 34-3 on Sunday to remain unbeaten.
The rookie No. 2 overall pick connected with Darren Sproles on a 73-yard, catch-and-run TD and tossed a 12-yard TD pass to Jordan Matthews.
"Everyone has confidence and high expectations for themselves," Wentz said. "We're playing inspired football."
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Carson Wentz has the Philadelphia Eagles on the right track. Robert Griffin III has the Cleveland Browns on the road to nowhere.
Wentz had 278 yards passing and two touchdowns in his NFL debut, a tenacious defense left Griffin hurting and the Eagles beat the Browns 29-10 on Sunday.
Sure, it's only one game. But, the two teams seem headed in opposite directions.
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Carson Wentz had 278 yards passing and two touchdowns in a stellar NFL debut and the Philadelphia Eagles beat Robert Griffin III and the Cleveland Browns 29-10 on Sunday.
Promoted from No. 3 quarterback to starter just eight days ago, the No. 2 overall pick from North Dakota State looked like a potential franchise player. Wentz played mistake-free football despite missing the last three preseason games with injured ribs. He finished 22 of 37 with a 101.0 passer rating.
