Matthews reverted to the 49ers' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transactions report. Matthews played four snaps on special teams Week 8. The 2014 second-round pick has recently reinvented himself as a tight end, but he hasn't drawn a target since his time with the Eagles back in 2019.
Matthews has been elevated from the practice squad ahead of Sunday's tilt with the Bears, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Matthews was cut by the 49ers on Tuesday, David Lombardi of The Athletic reports. The 2014 second-round pick is in the process of reinventing himself as a tight end. Matthews could still end up on the San Francisco practice squad, where he'd have time to develop before eventually competing for a depth role behind George Kittle.
Matthews agreed to a deal with the 49ers on Friday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports. Matthews suited up for five games over the previous two seasons in San Francisco, but he'll now look to secure a roster spot as a tight end. The veteran pass catcher put on 15 pounds over the offseason in an effort to make the transition. The 2014 second-round pick will compete to earn a depth role behind George Kittle.
