  • Matthews (hamstring) caught three of five targets for 19 yards in Sunday's 12-7 loss to Arizona. Matthews was operating at less than 100 percent and ended up tying Eric Decker for third on the team in targets behind Delanie Walker (nine) and Corey Davis (six). With quarterback Marcus Mariota (knee) also laboring, Tennessee's passing game will be difficult to trust next week in San Francisco.

  • Matthews (hamstring) was a full participant in the Titans' practice Thursday, Jason Wolf of The Tennessean reports. The hamstring injury rendered Matthews a game-day decision for both of the past two weeks, with the Titans' top wideout ultimately getting ruled out of both contests after his mobility was limited in pregame workouts. It looks as though Matthews will spare fantasy owners the suspense for Sunday's matchup with the Cardinals, as his full practice Thursday will likely allow him to avoid an injury designation in Week 14. That being said, Matthews is expected to be shadowed by Cardinals All-Pro cornerback Patrick Peterson for most of the day Sunday, which may prompt quarterback Marcus Mariota to target other options in the passing attack more frequently than he otherwise might.

  • Matthews (hamstring) confirmed after Wednesday's practice that he expects to play Sunday against the Cardinals, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports. Matthews apparently came close to playing in the Titans' 24-13 win over the Texans last week, but he was ultimately inactive after managing just one limited practice (on Friday) leading up to the game. Titans head coach Mike Mularkey has already expressed confidence about the wideout's Week 14 return, with Matthews backing it up Wednesday by getting in another limited practice. A return to full participation by the end of the week would give owners a bit more confidence as Matthews prepares for a potential shadow situation against Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson. It's obviously a sub-optimal spot, even if it turns out that Matthews' hamstring is no longer a real concern.

  • Matthews (hamstring) was a limited participant at Wednesday's practice, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports. Matthews returned to a limited practice Friday but ultimately was ruled out for Sunday's eventual 24-13 win over Houston. Titans head coach Mike Mularkey said Monday that Matthews was almost able to play in that game, leading to speculation that the wideout will be ready to play Week 14 in Arizona. A full practice before the end of the week would instill more confidence as Matthews prepares for a potential head-to-head matchup with Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson.

  • Titans head coach Mike Mularkey said Matthews (hamstring) was almost able to play in Sunday's 24-13 win over Houston, but the team decided to play it safe with an eye on Week 14 against the Cardinals, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports. Matthews returned to a limited practice Friday and was listed as questionable, ultimately getting ruled out in the hours leading up to Sunday's victory. The Titans may have figured they could get by without him against a sinking Houston team, whereas a road game against the Cardinals looks quite a bit tricker on paper. It looks particularly difficult for Matthews, who likely will have to deal with Patrick Peterson for much of the afternoon, assuming the wideout is able to return. Mularkey's comments Monday suggest Matthews is already on the right track.
