49ers tight end Jordan Matthews will miss the season after tearing his anterior cruciate ligament, Cam Inman of The Mercury News reports.

Matthews limped off the field Monday after hurting his knee while running a route during warmups. Medical testing confirmed the diagnosis Wednesday.

Matthews, a nine-year veteran who has 274 catches as a receiver, switched to tight end last year. He spent most of 2021 on the team’s practice squad.

The 49ers have Ross Dwelley, Tyler Kroft, Tanner Hudson and Troy Fumagalli behind George Kittle. Charlie Woerner, the No. 2 tight end as a rookie, is on the active/physically unable to perform list while rehabilitating from core muscle surgery.

San Francisco lost defensive tackle Maurice Hurst to a season-ending torn biceps last week.

  1. Sad to say but stick a fork in him. Jordan moved to TE to recapture his career as you see he was on the PS a ton but hoped to make the jump to the active roster this year. He will be in year 10 next year and coming off an ACL and unproven at TE – Probably it for him, but certainly always appreciate his early years in Philly.
