Report: Ryan Mathews suffered an MCL sprain during the Seahawks game


NFL: Philadelphia Eagles at Seattle Seahawks Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

According to ESPN’s Adam Caplan, Ryan Mathews suffered an MCL sprain in the first half of Sunday’s game against the Seahawks.

An MCL sprain can end up meaning a few different things. There are three different grades of MCL sprains.

A Grade 1 MCL sprain isn’t much of a problem. That usually entails a one-week recovery period, at the most.

A Grade 2 MCL sprain can usually take somewhere between two to four weeks to heal.

And a Grade 3 MCL sprain usually takes somewhere around four to eight weeks to heal fully.

We’ll see if Pederson has any news about Mathews’ injury after the game, or tomorrow morning when he addresses reporters. If Pederson calls Mathews week-to-week, as he has previously for players who are expected to miss the upcoming game, the Eagles could be in trouble at running back come their Week 12 matchup against the Packers.
