Matthews (thigh) reverted to injured reserve Monday, per the league's official transaction log.
Correcting a previous report, Matthews was actually waived/injured by the Ravens on Friday -- as opposed to simply being released -- and now reverts to IR after clearing waivers. Barring an injury settlement, he'll likely stay there for the remainder of the season.
The Ravens released Matthews (thigh) on Friday.
Baltimore's decision to let Matthews go suggests Mike Wallace (concussion) and Jeremy Maclin (shoulder) aren't in any danger of missing Sunday's game against the Titans. The 6-foot-5 wideout caught three of six targets for 25 yards in six games with the Ravens this season, but was on track to miss his second consecutive game with the thigh injury. Matthews had 109 receiving yards in Super Bowl XLIX as a member of the Seahawks, but he's averaged just 8.0 yards per reception in 22 career regular-season contests.
Matthews looks destined to go down as a nonparticipant in practice for the second straight day, putting his status on murky ground heading into the Week 9 matchup with the Titans. In the six games he's played this season, Matthews has held a minimal role in the Ravens' passing game, hauling in three of six targets for 25 yards.
