Fans who said on social media that they met Matthews at a recent appearance said his hand was swollen and he did not shake hands. Asked about a hand injury after the Carolina loss, Matthews hesitated, then denied an injury.
Matthews has been dropping passes every game and that continued against Carolina on Sunday night. He's the Eagles top receiving threat but has really struggled during his sophomore season. Right now, this is all speculation of course. Matthews had a key drop as far back as Week 1 against the Falcons.
