Titans head coach Mike Vrabel suggested Wednesday that Matthews is likely to see his role gradually expand during the team's upcoming games, Jim Wyatt of the team's official site reports. "Rishard would be in that category of practicing better and playing better and knowing what to do, he would probably be out there a ton," Vrabel said. "And so he was out there, and I am sure we're all looking forward to getting him out there more."

Matthews had a 52 percent offensive snap share in Sunday's 27-20 loss to the Dolphins, finishing the game without a target while working behind both Corey Davis and Tajae Sharpe. It shouldn't be long before Matthews pushes Sharpe out of the starting lineup, but it can't be assumed it will happen Week 2 against the Texans. Sharpe played 84 percent of the snaps in Week 1, catching one of three targets for 17 yards.
