Although the Buffalo Bills got a huge 23-17 win over the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday afternoon, the team is about to lose one of their top receiving threats.

It was first reported by our own Sal Capaccio that wide receiver Jordan Matthews will undergo surgery on his thumb and is expected to miss about a month of action.

ESPN's Adam Schefter confirmed Sal's report and adds that he will have a pin inserted to repair his injured thumb.

Matthews has been active for all four games this season after missing the preseason with a chip fracture in his sternum. The 25-year old has 10 receptions for 162 yards this season, including his touchdown he caught in Atlanta on Sunday.

The Bills acquired Matthews, along with a 2018 third round pick, on August 11th from the Philadelphia Eagles in exchange for cornerback Ronald Darby. Matthews is set to become an unrestricted free agent this upcoming offseason.
