Ertz (concussion) practiced in full Wednesday.
Injuries have plagued Ertz during the second half of the season, forcing two absences and only one outing with more than 25 yards in five chances to suit up. Earlier Wednesday, he received clearance from the concussion protocol, so he'll turn his focus to preparing for Sunday's road matchup with the Giants, who he torched for eight catches, 55 yards and one touchdown back in Week 3.
Ertz was cleared from the league's concussion protocol Wednesday, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Ertz was close to taking the field ahead of Sunday's eventual win over the Rams before ultimately being ruled inactive, but his clearance from the concussion protocol puts him on track to return to action Week 15 against the Giants. Though the Eagles churned out three touchdowns from their tight ends last week (two from Trey Burton, one from Brent Celek), Ertz, who will participate in Wednesday's practice, will likely take back the bulk of the snaps at the position upon his return to game action.
Ertz (concussion) is listed as inactive for Sunday's road matchup with the Rams, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
Medical clearance from an independent neurologist seemingly came too late for Ertz to make an appearance this week. He'll thus turn his focus to a divisional game against the Giants next Sunday. In his stead, Brent Celek and Trey Burton will man tight end for the Eagles.
The Eagles plan to test out Ertz before the game and cautioned that earlier reports that Ertz was doubtful to suit up may have been premature. According to Les Bowen of The Philadelphia Inquirer, Ertz is still experiencing a dull headache, which has prevented the Eagles from formally signing off on his return. It's likely that Ertz's status won't be decided until 90 minutes before the 4:25 p.m. EST kickoff, making the tight end a risky fantasy roll this week.
Ertz (concussion) will be evaluated before Sunday's game against the Rams, but is considered doubtful, per a source, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Ertz participated in practices Thursday and Friday, but remains in the NFL's concussion protocol and is officially listed as questionable. Brent Celek and Trey Burton would be the main beneficiaries of Ertz's possible absence.
