The report said he was watching practice without his helmet, and no reason was given for his absence.
Matthews will likely be No. 3 on the depth chart behind
Matthews is a good receiver, but he's not a burner, which the Eagles will miss with Jackson gone. Still, this receiving corps is starting to look solid with Maclin, Cooper, Matthews,
It should only help Folk, who depended heavily on Jackson last year. He's still a low-end No. 1 Fantasy quarterback, but he's a great one to wait for with a late-round pick.
As for Matthews, he's only worth a late-round flier in standard leagues, and he's a solid second-round pick in rookie-only formats.

Askef if there will be enough passes to go around, general manager Howie Roseman told Birds 24/7 that he's trying to follow Denver's model.
"When you look at how many offensive plays that you have over the course of the season, there’s a lot of opportunities to spread the ball around, get people involved," Roseman said. "I don’t think you have to look further than when you look at the Denver Broncos and how many options they have in their passing game and how big of an advantage that is when you have guys all around the field and you can get different personnel groups and that’s what we’re looking to do. We're looking to be an explosive, dynamic offense and when you talk about the skills that he has, Jeremy, certainly he adds to that group."
Maclin was the latest to sign when he inked a one-year deal Saturday.
The latest report by ESPN says Cooper signed a five-year, $25 million deal. Comcast Sports Net previously reported the deal was four years.
Regardless, Cooper is coming back to the Eagles in 2014, and he will look to build off his performance in 2013 when he had 47 catches for 835 yards and eight touchdowns.
