Jordan Matthews might be making his return to Philadelphia once again. 

According to source, receiver Jordan Matthews is in Philadelphia for a physical. 

Presumably this could be a precursor to him signing with the team, that is clear at this point. 

News of Matthews coming to Philadelphia was first reported by Philly Voice. 

The Eagles need at receiver increased when DeSean Jackson had surgery on Tuesday for an abdomen injury. It is expected he will be out at least six weeks, putting the rest of his season in jeopardy. 

If Matthews does indeed sign it will be the second season in a row in which the team had to bring him in because of issues at wide receiver. Matthews did an excellent job last year after joining the team, catching 20 passes for 300 yards and two touchdowns. 

More details to come.
