Ertz was one of several
Ertz caught all three targets for just 37 yards in Sunday's 24-23 loss to the Lions.
Ertz was deemed healthy enough to return after sitting out the last two games with a rib injury, but he was not a large of Sunday's game plan, as the targets were distributed rather evenly among Philadelphia receivers. He was heavily involved in the season opener before he was injured, and should see his workload increase in Week 6 versus the Redskins.
Ertz (rib) was a full practice participant Wednesday.
With an uninhibited practice under his belt, Ertz has officially recovered from the rib displacement in his collarbone that forced back-to-back absences. Fortunately for the Eagles and Ertz, their Week 4 bye will contain him to two DNPs, and he'll resume his role as one of Carson Wentz's top targets with Jordan Matthews, Nelson Agholor, and Darren Sproles.
Hertz (rib) was cleared by doctors Monday and is 100 percent healthy in advance of Week 5, The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Ertz has been sidelined since suffering a displaced rib during Philadelphia's season-opening win, but with the Eagles now entering a Week 4 bye, he could return for their next appearance. Should that transpire, adding Ertz would only figure to boost an offense that has already impressed to begin this season. That being said, by Ertz reclaiming the Eagles' starting tight end position, both Brent Celek and Trey Burton would probably be pushed down the pecking order in Philadelphia's passing game.
