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

Matthews' injury could explain why the Patriots brought in veteran wide receiver Eric Decker for a workout Monday. Julian Edelman is suspended for the first four games of the season, which leaves Chris Hogan, Phillip Dorsett and newcomer Cordarrelle Patterson as the healthy receivers. 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.

New England has suffered a slew of early injuries at wide receiver, including Matthews.

A new player, fullback Henry Poggi, was at practice on Wednesday.

"Guys are going to get nicked, it happens, and you just have to come out here with the mindset that you're going to practice as hard as you can", he said.

Poggi, 23, was originally signed by the Oakland Raiders as a rookie free agent out of MI on May 7, 2018. Matthews had collected 225 receptions for 2,673 yards during his first three seasons in Philadelphia - most of the coming from the slot.

"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. The former Vanderbilt star racked up three seasons of at least 800 yards before he was traded to the Buffalo Bills ahead of the 2017 season. He was likely to miss a large portion of the season as a result of the injury. A year ago in Buffalo those numbers dipped a bit, with Matthews catching just 25 passes for 282 yards and a touchdown in 10 games for the Bills. He caught 69 percent of all passes thrown to him.
