Jordan Matthews has bone bruise in left knee

ESPN - [Full Article]

Eagles wide receiver Jordan Matthews has a bone bruise in his left knee, coach Doug Pederson said Tuesday.

That's good news for Matthews and the team. After Matthews was injured during Friday's practice in a collision with rookie cornerback Jalen Mills, Pederson thought the injury was more serious.

"It looked bad on tape when I watched it," Pederson said Tuesday. "It looked worse than what I initially thought out here on the field. Now it's definitely day-to-day. There's no structure damage in there, which is definitely pleasing. On tape, it looks like it could have been."

Fantasy Impact: 

Matthews could miss the first two weeks of preseason, Pederson said in the story. Chris Givens will start in Matthews' place Thursday in the team's preseason opener.
