Is playing this week:
Breida is active for Sunday’s game against the Jets, Chris Jenkins of the Bills’ official site reports.
With Breida active for the first time since Week 2, the Bills will have four running backs (Devin Singletary, Zack Moss, Breida and Taiwan Jones) available Sunday.
On March 2, 1995 Matt was adopted by Terri and Mike Breida . Later they adopted a second child, Josh. Matt’s adoptive parents were independently disabled by chronic health problems and car accidents in 2006 and 2003, respectively.
During his time at Georgia Southern, Matt volunteered as a reader and speaker at elementary schools in two states, which contributed to his nomination as a Senior Class Award finalist and Honor Roll member.
And despite using a second-round restricted free-agent tender on Breida, San Francisco ultimately sent him packing to the Dolphins in the middle of the NFL Draft in exchange for a fifth-round pick, which was eventually used on West Virginia offensive lineman Colton McKivitz.
Not able to stay fully healthy, Breida sustained a slightly torn pectoral muscle during OTA’s resulting in missing a portion of the offseason program. This was the result of a weightlifting injury that is a common mechanism of injury for a pectoral tear. He ultimately did not require surgery.
