Matthews was declared inactive for the 1 p.m. matchup, due to an ankle injury. The Eagles called Matthews a game-time decision earlier in the week, but his prognosis looked grim as Sunday drew closer. Mathews was limited in practice this week, after being diagnosed with a sprained right ankle.

He suffered the injury in the first half of the Eagles' Week 12 loss to the Green Bay Packers. The low-end WR2 had four receptions for 47 yards before his exit. If you own any Matthews stock in any of your fantasy football leagues, look for a backup plan heading into the playoffs. You will need depth at the position for weeks to come. Second-year pass-catcher Nelson Agholor is expected to play in place of Matthews. Matthews has 686 yards and three touchdowns on 57 receptions in 11 games for the Eagles.
