Veteran Jordan Matthews, who was continuing his quest to remain in the NFL as a tight end with the 49ers, sustained a season-ending knee injury in practice on Tuesday, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bayarea reports.

An MRI examination revealed Matthews sustained a torn ACL, the 49ers announced on Wednesday.

He left practice before team drills began on Tuesday. A day later, he was seen leaving the team’s Santa Clara facility on crutches with a brace on his left knee.

Matthews, 30, spent seven seasons in the NFL as a wide receiver. He caught 274 passes for 3,288 and 22 touchdowns with the Philadelphia Eagles and Buffalo Bills.

After appearing in only the first two games of the 2020 season with the 49ers, he was released. He came back last season as a tight end. He spent most of the season on the practice squad and appeared in just one game.
