One week after signing a contract extension, veteran wide receiver Rishard Matthews is ready to return to the field.
Matthews, 28, missed the offseason program and training camp with an injury that beat writer Paul Kuharsky reported was a torn meniscus. He has passed his physical and gained clearance for practice, the team's website confirmed.
Over the past two seasons, Matthews has led all Titans receivers with 1,740 yards and 13 touchdowns. He figures to see a lot of time in the slot this season, with promising second-year wideouts Corey Davis and Taywan Taylor on the outside.
Here are other injuries we're tracking on Sunday:
1. New York Giants head coach Pat Shurmur said linebacker Olivier Vernon is being evaluated for an ankle injury suffered during practice.
2. Cincinnati Bengals left tackle Cordy Glenn exited the game after suffering a shoulder injury in Sunday's preseason game against the Bills. Per The Athletic's Jay Morrison, Glenn remained on the sideline and in uniform after being declared out.
4. Arizona Cardinals running back D.J. Foster suffered a knee injury and will not return for the remainder of the game. Cardinals defensive end Arthur Moats exited the game with a knee injury during the fourth quarter.
