Draft Scout Jake Matthews News
10/19/16 - LT Jake Matthews is second on the team with four penalties -- a false start, two holdings and one illegal use of the hands. His low block on Seattle DE Michael Bennett was defended by Falcons coach Dan Quinn. Bennett was irate over the block. "He's a hell of a competitor," Quinn said of Bennett. "It was not a cheap shot in any way by Jake. When it's a handful of a player, you try to get his hands down, cut, do whatever you can. I think it's likely (Bennett is angry) because he got banged up on the play. He's used to it (because) Seattle cuts a lot as well."
09/16/15 - LT Jake Matthews (back) was limited at practice Wednesday.
08/31/15 - LT Jake Matthews did not practice because of back strain on Monday. Tyler Polumbus took his place in the lineup. Coach Dan Quinn said that the team must monitor the seriousness of Matthews' injury.
02/21/15 - T Jake Matthews is recovering from an offseason foot surgery.
"Jake is healing very well," GM Thomas Dimitroff said. "He knows his body. He takes really good care of how he approaches his body."
Matthews, the sixth overall pick in the 2013 draft, played last season on a high ankle sprain. He suffered another injury in the season finale against Carolina.
Matthews is expected to miss most of the team's offseason program.
"He decided to go through the procedure that he went through because he thought it was the best way to get himself back healthy by the beginning of the year," Dimitroff said. "We have no concerns that way."
