[BN] Blitz newsletter: Bills WR Jordan Matthews has surgery on both legs

Bills wide receiver Jordan Matthews, who was placed on injured reserve earlier this month, posted Thursday that he had surgery on both legs and is expected to make a full recovery.

Matthews was known to be dealing with a left knee injury, but he posted that he also had his right ankle taken care of as long as he was going in. "It was a buy 1 get one 1 free and we real cheap," he joked.

Matthews will be a free agent this offseason. With Kelvin Benjamin and Zay Jones in the fold, Matthews is unlikely to return to the Bills, though he seems to be well-liked. His fiancée is a professional soccer player who is currently with Washington.

Are the Bills actually good when it's cold out? This seems like conventional wisdom ... except it doesn't check out. The Bills don't seem to get any advantage from playing home games in the cold. Remember that the next time someone says Buffalo can't have a domed stadium.

After hesitation to switch to linebacker, Milano becomes NFL starter: Bills coach Sean McDermott made it official this week that rookie linebacker Matt Milano is now a starter in place of Ramon Humber. Milano recalled this week that he was initially hesitant to switch from safety to linebacker, and he even turned down colleges because of it.

Oh, well: Dolphins coach Adam Gase was asked what he learned watching the Bills on film during their snow game against the Colts. "Nothing," he said, not entirely joking. Bills players such as Preston Brown mentioned this week that watching film of the game was difficult because the cameras couldn't always see the field through driving snow.
