Matthews can’t do drills after injuring shoulder

INDIANAPOLIS — Oregon LB Casey Matthews won’t work out Monday at the NFL Scouting Combine after injuring his shoulder during the bench press the previous day.

Matthews said while attempting his 14th rep, his shoulder subluxed and he couldn’t finish.

Matthews said this was a freak accident, but that he did suffer an injury in his left shoulder as a freshman. He said he doesn’t believe surgery will be needed and that he can heal with rehabilitation.

Matthews’ pro day is March 10, and he said he hopes to be able to participate, but he’s not certain.
