Zach Ertz Still Not Cleared For Contact

32

Philadelphia Eagles tight end Zach Ertz, who has been dealing with injured ribs and a back issue, has still not been cleared for contact, according to head coach Doug Pederson.

Ertz has practiced with a flak jacket to protect his ribs and he’s scheduled to undergo further testing on Saturday to determine his availability for Sunday’s Wild Card game against the Seattle Seahawks.

It was originally reported by John Clark of NBC Sports Philadelphia that Ertz had a decent chance to play but this latest update isn’t a good sign. If he can’t go, Dallas Goedert would fill-in for the Eagles at tight end.
