Cowboys’ Jordan Matthews’ surgery ‘pretty much a done deal’

The Dallas Cowboys are “pretty much done” with Jordan Matthews surgery, according to general manager Phil Savage.

Matthews was a full participant in practice all week but didn’t practice Friday after aggravating a shoulder injury.

The Cowboys have already said they plan to cut him if they can’t get him back on the field soon.

Savage also said the team is looking to add a running back to the roster after trading up for Ezekiel Elliott with the No. 2 overall pick in the draft.

Elliott suffered a torn ACL in the first preseason game and has missed the last four games with the injury.
