Goedert (calf) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against Washington. With Goedert and Richard Rodgers (ankle) both out, Zach Ertz could handle an every-down role. Then again, the Eagles have already been eliminated from the playoffs, and they might want to take a look at reserves like Caleb Wilson and Jason Croom at some point in the season finale. Goedert finishes his second season with a 46-524-3 receiving line in 11 games, doing well to average 47.6 yards per game and 8.1 yards per target in a chaotic, subpar offense. He had his biggest games with Carson Wentz at quarterback, but Goedert showed decent chemistry with Jalen Hurts, catching 11 of 17 targets for 120 yards in Weeks 14 through 16.
Goedert (calf) was listed as a non-participant at Thursday's practice. Goedert has been idle for both of the Eagles' first two Week 17 practices while managing the calf issue. Head coach Doug Pederson hasn't clarified whether Goedert is at risk of missing Sunday's game against the Washington, but with the Eagles having been eliminated from playoff contention, the team could err on the side of caution and hold the tight end out for the season finale if there's truly any concern about his calf.
Goedert (calf) didn't practice Wednesday. Goedert left Sunday's loss at Dallas due to the injury, which is now keeping him off the practice field. He'll have two additional chances this week to fit in some reps, but if he ends up limited or sitting out this weekend against Washington, Zach Ertz may handle the majority of tight-end reps with Richard Rodgers (ankle) still unable to practice.
Goedert has been forced out of Sunday's game against the Cowboys due to a calf injury. Goedert left the field early in the fourth quarter, and the Eagles are officially listing him as questionable to return. Zach Ertz will operate as Philadelphia's clear top tight end in the meantime, while Caleb Wilson operates in a No. 2 role.
Goedert caught four of his eight targets for 39 yards in Sunday's 33-26 loss to Arizona. Goedert's day was almost much better, as he was twice targeted in the end zone on the Eagles' penultimate drive, but he couldn't reel in either chance. The 25-year-old led the team in targets for a second-straight week, but this time Jalen Reagor saw eight as well. The third-year vet also saw more snaps than any offensive skill player and 11 more than Zach Ertz.
