New England Patriots wide receiver Jordan Matthews has suffered a "significant" hamstring injury, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Matthews was the only Patriot not spotted at Thursday's practice, where all other injured players working out on a lower conditioning field. With Edelman set to serve a four-game suspension for violating the NFL's PED policy to open the season, some viewed that as possibly increasing Matthews' chances of sticking. If Decker is still a viable National Football League receiver at all, he would have a chance to push for a roster spot at the bottom of the depth chart. Now it looks like second-year man Riley McCarron and rookie Braxton Berrios will aim to be the leading candidates to keep Edelman's seat warm.

To fill the roster spot, the Patriots added ex-Michigan fullback Henry Poggi, who practiced Wednesday wearing No. 48.

Decker spent the first four seasons of his career with the Broncos. He could negotiate an injury settlement and eventually become a free agent.

Roberto Osuna Acquisition Could Get Awkward For Houston Astros
General Manager Jeff Luhnow said they did their due diligence and spoke to many people who know Osuna. I haven't really paid attention to (Osuna's case), for obvious reasons - it wasn't really in my life.

"I don't feel like I'm called to be comfortable, and I knew this would be a great place for me to go", he said at the time.

Matthews dealt with a litany of injuries during the 2017 season with the Buffalo Bills.

He suffered a chip fracture in his sternum in his first practice of training camp for Buffalo and later fractured his thumb in Week 4, missing one game. He was likely to miss a large portion of the season as a result of the injury.

Decker scored 17 touchdowns during his first two years with the Jets, but managed just 63 catches for 757 yards and three touchdowns. Don't be surprised when he lands there and catches 10 passes for 100 yards in a Week 1 Patriots win.
