Eagles' Zach Ertz: Plays through injuries down stretch

Ertz (undisclosed) did not play in Sunday's Pro Bowl, Daniel Gallen of PennLive.com reports.

Considering Ertz never missed a game and ultimately logged a career-high 91.6 percent of the snaps in 2018, it's safe to say none of his alleged injuries are severe. The tight end nonetheless told reporters he wasn't playing at 100 percent down the stretch. Ertz declined to specify his injury, so it's possible general wear and tear from an 18-game season led to his absence. In any event, Ertz has plenty of time to rest in advance of a 2019 campaign for which the Eagles will return most key players on offense. He has three seasons remaining on a five-year, $42.5 million extension that now looks like a major bargain for the team.
