Unfortunate news has hit for the Buffalo Bills and their recently acquired wide receiver. Reports have come in that Jordan Matthews, who the team just received in a trade with the Philadelphia Eagles may have suffered a chest injury during a practice session. It could be bad news for a team that also just traded away their top receiver, Sammy Watkins, to the Los Angeles Rams. Here's the latest on the potential Jordan Matthews injury for the Buffalo Bills ahead of their Week 2 NFL preseason game on Thursday.

Injury reported

An ESPN report earlier today said that Jordan Matthews' injury occurred during a practice held by the Buffalo Bills on Sunday.

Reportedly, Matthews hurt his chest at some point during his time on the field and would later leave with a team trainer. It's uncertain when the injury happened, though.

The report notes that Matthews was on the field for some first-team and second-team reps to work with quarterback Tyrod Taylor. It was Matthews' first time getting to work with his new team after a trade was announced just a few days ago. That trade involved the Bills sending cornerback Ronald Darby to the Eagles. In exchange, Buffalo received Matthews and a 2018 third-round pick.

In another trade, the Buffalo Bills sent their top receiver Sammy Watkins and a sixth-round pick in 2018 over to the Los Angeles Rams.

Bills' prognosis

The Buffalo Bills will play on Thursday for Week 2 of the NFL preseason when they meet the Eagles in Philadelphia. ESPN reported that head coach Sean McDermott stayed ahead of Sunday's practice he wanted Matthews to play in that game.

However, Jordan Matthews will now be evaluated for the chest injury. Reports indicated that the team didn't make him available for any media after practice due to the injury situation. However, on the positive side of things, Matthews finished out the practice despite the injury so it doesn't appear it could be too serious. Fantasy owners will certainly be keeping an eye on things, though.

Matthews has four years of experience in the league after becoming Philadelphia's 42nd pick in the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft. The 6-foot-3 wide receiver has tallied 225 catches for 2,673 yards and 19 touchdowns so far in his career. The Bills' game with the Eagles is scheduled for Thursday night starting at 7 p.m. Eastern Time.
