Buffalo Bills wide receiver Jordan Matthews (chest) said he is "confident" he will be ready for the first week of the regular season. What It Means: "I’m extremely confident that I will be able to play for Week 1,” Matthews stated. He got in extremely limited reps during Sunday's practice, but the fourth-year wideout is still experiencing pain from any sort of "upper body" movement. "It’s more pain management," Matthews said. "Let’s get the pain down and get all functional movement back and then when it’s just that one spot hurting, let’s protect that spot and go play...

Carson Wentz looked sharp on Monday during joint practice with Dolphins

Eagles starting quarterback Carson Wentz regained his form on Monday during the team's joint practice with the Miami Dolphins, according to Tim McManus of ESPN. What It Means: After an up-and-down week of training camp, Wentz came out hot on Monday, dropping dimes against the Dolphins. Wentz wasn't holding back, and even "opened some eyes with a fastball to Nelson Agholor along the right sideline," per McManus. It was a good day for Wentz, who will look for a new go-to receiver after the Eagles' 2016 leader in targets, Jordan Matthews, was recently traded to the Bills. Wentz is...

Fourth-year WR confident he’ll be ready for season opener Sept. 10 vs. Jets When the Buffalo Bills acquired possession wide receiver Jordan Matthews from the Philadelphia Eagles in the Ronald Darby trade, the thought was Matthews would immediately step in and lead the Bills’ receiving corps as quarterback Tyrod Taylor’s No. 1 target. Instead he has been hurt since his first practice. Former first-round draft pick Sammy Watkins’ departure via trade to the Los Angeles Rams essentially opened the door for the Matthews for Darby swap, and Bills fans were eager to see how quickly...
