Matthews reverted to the 49ers' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log. Matthews suited up in each of the 49ers' final two games, logging 14 total snaps on offense but failing to receive a target. It's unclear if he'll stick around with the 49ers during the offseason. If he does, we shouldn't expect much, as Matthews has played in just five games over the past two seasons.
Matthews was elevated to the 49ers' active roster Saturday, David Lombardi of the Athletic reports. Matthews was originally sent back down to the practice squad after logging six special teams snaps in Week 16 against the Cardinals, but he's getting the call to return to the active roster for the team's season finale as well. Fellow receivers Brandon Aiyuk (ankle) and Deebo Samuel (hamstring) have already been ruled out.
Matthews reverted to the 49ers' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log. The 2014 second-round pick collected six snaps in his season debut Saturday against the Cardinals, with all of his involvement coming in the special-teams department. Matthews remains without a catch since Nov. 2019, as he transitions back into a practice squad role.
Matthews was promoted to the 49ers' active roster from the practice squad Friday, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports. The 28-year-old rejoined San Francisco's practice squad earlier this week and will move to the active roster ahead of Saturday's matchup with Arizona. Matthews will provide depth at wide receiver with Deebo Samuel (hamstring) sidelined and Trent Taylor (undisclosed) on the COVID-19 list.
Matthews signed with San Francisco's practice squad Wednesday. Matthews spent time on the 49ers' practice squad earlier this season but was cut earlier this month. Expectations will be low in his return considering he has spent the better part of the last two seasons with the organization and has yet to catch a pass.
