Titans WR Rishard Matthews is active against the Cardinals

New, comments

Big development.

NFL: Tennessee Titans at Pittsburgh Steelers Philip G. Pavely-USA TODAY Sports

The Titans will get their No. 1 receiver back today against the Arizona Cardinals. After missing two straight games with a hamstring issue, Matthews returns to the lineup today.

That’s obviously a huge development for a team that has really struggled in the passing game as of late. Matthews is a guy that has proven to have plenty of chemistry with Marcus Mariota over the past two seasons. This should take some pressure off of Corey Davis and Delanie Walker.

New addition Luke Stocker won’t be active in his first game as a Titan. With Matthews up, Harry Douglas goes down. Finally, as we knew already — Derrick Morgan will be out today, meaning Erik Walden will have to step up and fill his role.

For the Cardinals, John Brown, Adrian Peterson and Corey Peters will all be inactive today.
