NFL 49ers’ Jordan Matthews sustains season-ending ACL injury

San Francisco 49ers tight end Jordan Matthews has been diagnosed with a torn ACL in his left knee and will miss the entire season.

Matthews, 30, sustained the injury on Monday during a non-contact drill.

Matthews was battling to be a backup after being a solid wideout earlier in his career. He has caught 274 passes for 3,288 yards and 22 touchdowns in a six-season span with the Philadelphia Eagles (2014-16) and Buffalo Bills (2017-19).

He joined the 49ers late in the 2019 season and played in just four games in two-plus seasons. San Francisco converted Matthews to tied end prior to the 2021 campaign and he spent most of last season on the practice squad.

Matthews was a standout college receiver at Vanderbilt and was a second-round choice of the Eagles in 2014.
