Matthews (knee) remained limited at Thursday's practice.
More on Matthews's status Friday, but his continued practice participation, albeit in a limited capacity, bodes well for his chances of returning to action Sunday against the Chiefs. His Week 12 status gains added import, with fellow wideout Kelvin Benjamin (knee) not having practiced yet this week.
Matthews (knee) was limited at Wednesday's practice.
Matthews was a limited practice participant all last week and a game-time decision for Sunday's eventual 54-24 loss to the Chargers. He ultimately was held out, but the fact he nearly played suggests he's trending in the right direction for the Week 12 matchup in Kansas City, where the Bills may be without Kelvin Benjamin (knee). A full practice by the end of the week wound inspire confidence that Matthews is ready to play.
Matthews practiced to some degree most of the week, so this is a bit of a surprise. Since the Bills' passing attack has been inconsistent all season and will now try rookie quarterback Nathan Peterman at quarterback, perhaps the absence takes some of the guesswork out of things for Matthews owners.
Matthews will test his injured knee before Sunday's game against the Chargers, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Matthews is officially listed as questionable, and while head coach Sean McDermott is optimistic Matthews will play, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, it'll all come down to how his knee reacts to the pregame work. If he is good to go, he'll also have to deal with adjusting to new quarterback Nathan Peterman.
Matthews (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Chargers.
Matthews was a limited participant in practice Friday, which had also been the case in the Bills' other two sessions earlier in the week. Since Matthews wasn't absent for any practices, it's generally expected that he'll play Sunday, but his fantasy upside will remain fairly limited with the Bills breaking in a new starting quarterback in rookie Nathan Peterman for the Week 11 matchup.
