Falcons' Jake Matthews: Falcons pick up fifth-year option
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matthews had his fifth-year option exercised by the Falcons on Tuesday, Vaughn McClure of ESPN reports.

Matthews was a first-round pick in 2014, and the picked-up option will keep him in Atlanta through the 2018 season. The tackle was an intricate part of a Falcons offense that averaged 415.8 total yards per game in 2016, good for second best in the NFL. However, Atlanta did surrender 2.4 quarterback sacks per game last season, which ranks bottom-ten in the NFL, so Matthews and the rest of the offensive line will look to sure up their pass protection this coming season.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matthews (knee) is questionable for Sunday's matchup with Los Angeles.

Matthews was held out of practice on Wednesday and Thursday after spraining his knee in Week 13 but he was able to practice in a limited fashion on Friday. If he's held out on Sunday look for Tom Compton to see a spot start.

Although Matthews sprained his left knee during Sunday's game against the Chiefs, head coach Dan Quinn relayed he's hopeful the lineman will return to practice Thursday, D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Even if he is able to practice this week, Matthews isn't a lock to play Sunday against the Rams.

Falcons' Jake Matthews: Unable to return Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matthews (knee) was unable to return to Sunday's game against the Chiefs, D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Matthews will now have to wait until Week 14 against the Rams to make his return at left tackle, although he's no lock to play at this point in time. Tom Compton would likely be in line to start in Matthews' place if he's forced to miss additional action.
