The Facts: One week after signing a contract extension, veteran wide receiver Rishard Matthews is ready to return to the field. The Titans activated Matthews from the physically unable to perform list, the team announced Sunday. Former Ravens receiver Michael Campanaro was placed on injured reserve in a corresponding move.
Diehards Line: 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. As NFL.com's Chris Wesseling suggests, Matthews 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.
