Titans' Rishard Matthews: Could have bigger role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Mike Vrabel suggested that Matthews is likely to see his role expand, Jim Wyatt of TitansOnline.com reports. "So Rishard would be in that category of practicing better and playing better and knowing what to do, he would probably be out there a ton," Vrabel said. "And so he was out there, and I am sure we're all looking forward to getting him out there more."

Matthews had a 52 percent snap share in Sunday's 27-20 loss to the Dolphins, finishing the game without a target while working behind both Corey Davis and Tajae Sharpe. It shouldn't be long before Matthews pushes Sharpe out of the starting lineup, but we can't assume it will happen for Sunday's game against the Texans. Sharpe played 84 percent of the snaps Week 1, catching one of three targets for 17 yards

Titans' Rishard Matthews: May have reps monitored early
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matthews could be on a rep count early in the season, the Titans' official site reports.

Matthews resumed practicing last Monday, but that's a relatively short turnaround for a wideout coming off of a knee injury that cost him all of training camp and most of the preseason. Though he should still be involved in the offense early on, there's a chance his production will be limited as he eases back into the rotation. When healthy, he will likely start at receiver opposite Corey Davis.

Titans' Rishard Matthews: Activated off PUP list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matthews (knee) has been cleared to practice after passing a physical, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

Matthews is reportedly bouncing back from a torn meniscus, but he's apparently past that issue and has been removed from the Titans' PUP list. Now that he's slated to return to the field, Matthews will now go about cementing his role in the team's wideout rotation. Second-year player Corey Davis is generating plenty of preseason buzz, but a healthy Matthews can provide a solid fantasy floor for those draft him or bid on him in auctions. He's caught a total of 118 passes over the course of 30 games in his past two seasons with the Titans.

Titans' Rishard Matthews: Reportedly bouncing back from knee issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Though Matthews is reportedly bouncing back from a torn meniscus, he could come off the Titans' PUP list as early as next week, according to PaulKuharsky.com.

Per the report, which the Titans have not confirmed, Matthews underwent a procedure to address the issue in the first week of August. Prior to this nugget, news regarding Matthews' health had been scarce, but on the plus side, he's evidently nearing a return to action and the contract extension the wideout signed recently is a good indication that the Titans aren't overly concerned about his knee issue. Per the Titans' official site, Matthews ran some routes before Thursday's practice, which represents another positive indicator with regard to his chances of suiting up for Week 1 action.

Titans' Rishard Matthews: Gets incentives for 2018
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matthews (undisclosed) signed a one-year extension that also gives him the opportunity to earn an extra $1.375 million this upcoming season, ESPN.com's Field Yates reports.

Initial reports only mentioned a one-year, $7.75 million team option for 2019, which wouldn't make any sense from Matthews' perspective. It turns out the new deal also includes up to $875,000 in per-game roster bonuses and $500,000 in incentives for 2018, along with more than $1 million worth of incentives for 2019. This still doesn't explain why Matthews is on the PUP list, as a contract holdout doesn't provide grounds for the designation. However, the contract provides a strong hint that the Titans aren't overly concerned by Matthews' undisclosed injury, even though he hasn't practiced since May. With any luck, the new contract might inspire team or player to comment on the undisclosed injury.
