Eagles' Richard Rodgers: Returning to Philly
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodgers (ankle) agreed to a contract with the Eagles on Friday.

The 29-year-old appeared in 14 games for Philadelphia last season and caught 24 of 31 targets for 345 yards and two touchdowns. Rodgers should be positioned as the team's No. 3 tight end, but he could end up as Dallas Goedert's top backup with Zach Ertz on the trade block.

Eagles' Richard Rodgers: Won't face Washington on SNF
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodgers (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday night's game against Washington.

Rodgers has been listed as a non-participant for six consecutive practice sessions since injuring his ankle mid-contest Week 15 against the Cardinals. The veteran tight end will close out the 2020 campaign with back-to-back missed games after suiting up for Philadelphia's first 14 outings of the season. Rodgers ends the year without a reception over his final three appearances, having posted a total of 24 catches for 345 yards and two touchdowns on the season.

Eagles' Richard Rodgers: Misses another practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodgers (ankle) did not practice Thursday.

Rodgers hasn't practiced or played since injuring his ankle Week 15, and it seems like he's trending in the wrong direction for Sunday's divisional matchup against the Football Team. With Dallas Goedert (calf) also absent from practice, Caleb Wilson could work as the No. 2 tight end behind Zach Ertz.

Eagles' Richard Rodgers: DNP at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodgers (ankle) was absent from Wednesday's practice.

Rodgers missed last week's loss to the Cowboys after injuring his ankle the week prior. He will presumably need to get some reps at practice in order to have a chance at suiting up in the team's upcoming regular-season finale versus Washington.

Eagles' Richard Rodgers: Unavailable Week 16
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodgers (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game at Dallas.

The 28-year-old sustained the injury during last week's loss to the Cardinals, and he'll be sidelined for at least one game. Rodgers has seen a significant reduction in playing time since Zach Ertz returned from injured reserve Week 13. Dallas Goedert and Ertz will continue to operate as Philadelphia's top-two tight ends this weekend.

Eagles' Richard Rodgers: Misses practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodgers (ankle) did not practice Thursday.

Rodgers was carted off the field Sunday with what was initially called a shin injury, but it appears that the area of concern is more directly his ankle. The tight end also sat out Wednesday's practice, so his status for Sunday's contest against Dallas appears to be in serious jeopardy. However, Rodgers' contributions have diminished significantly since the return of Zach Ertz, and he has failed to notch a catch since Week 12.

Eagles' Richard Rodgers: Done for the day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodgers (shin) will not return to Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

Rodgers was carted off the field in the first half, so it never seemed very likely that he would return to Sunday's action. The Eagles now only have top tight ends Dallas Goedert and Zach Ertz as healthy options at the positions.

Eagles' Richard Rodgers: Suffers shin injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodgers was forced out of Sunday's game versus the Cardinals with a shin injury.

Rodgers was carted off the field in the first half. It seems unlikely he returns to the game. Dallas Goedert and Zach Ertz are the lone remaining tight ends in Philadelphia's lineup.

Eagles' Richard Rodgers: Hardly sees field in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodgers was not targeted in Sunday's 30-16 loss to Green Bay.

With Zach Ertz returning from IR, Rodgers played just three snaps on offense all night, his lowest number since Week 3. He likely will continue to see little playing time as long as Ertz and Dallas Goedert remain healthy.

Eagles' Richard Rodgers: Catches late touchdown
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodgers caught three of six targets for 53 yards and a touchdown in Monday night's 23-17 loss to the Seahawks.

Rodgers' night was highlighted by him catching a 33-yard Hail Mary in the game's final moments. Of course, the tight end had a famous catch of similar style during his prior stint with the Packers, who he'll now face in Week 13. Although he sports good momentum from Monday's performance, as well as his strong stretch while teammate Zach Ertz (ankle) has been injured, the possibility of Ertz returning to face Green Bay leaves Rodgers' stock in need of monitoring throughout the upcoming week.

Eagles' Richard Rodgers: Scores in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodgers caught each of his two targets for 48 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 22-17 loss to the Browns.

Both of the Eagles' touchdowns went to the tight ends on Sunday. Rodgers' was a 19-yard strike early in the second half. Despite playing just 22 snaps in this one and fewer than that last week, the 28-year-old totaled 108 yards in the pair of contests. He'll likely be relegated to the bench if Zach Ertz can return for Week 12 against the Seahawks, however.

Eagles' Richard Rodgers: Paces team in receiving in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodgers caught four of his five targets for 60 yards in Sunday's 27-17 loss to the Giants.

After going without a target in his previous outing, Rodgers bounced back to lead the team in receiving yardage. The 28-year-old now has at least 60 yards in two of his last three games. His time in the limelight may not last long however, as Zach Ertz could be back as soon as Week 11.

Eagles' Richard Rodgers: Not targeted in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodgers played just 16 snaps in Sunday's 23-9 win over Dallas and did not draw a target.

Rodgers hadn't played so little since Week 2, but Dallas Goedert came off IR prior to the game and immediately took over the primary tight end role. When either Goedert or Zach Ertz (ankle) have been healthy this season, Rodgers has yet to surpass four targets or 35 receiving yards in any game.

Eagles' Richard Rodgers: Slated to lose playing time?
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodgers could see his playing time reduced after Dallas Goedert (lower leg/ankle) was activated off injured reserve Saturday, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

Rodgers was the surprising star in last week's win over the Giants, posting six receptions for 85 yards and a touchdown, but he'll almost immediately fall back in line Sunday with Goedert set to play in a pivotal divisional matchup against the Cowboys. It's entirely possible Rodgers could still play a factor in the passing game, particularly since the Eagles love to operate in two tight-end sets, but Goedert will almost certainly operate as the No. 1 option even if he's not completely healthy. Rodgers has played in over 60 percent of the offensive snaps just once this season.

Eagles' Richard Rodgers: Paces pass catchers in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodgers brought in six of eight targets for 85 yards in the Eagles' 22-21 win over the Giants on Thursday night.

The veteran tight end was the surprising leader for the Eagles in receptions and receiving yards for the night, as he rose to the top of the depth chart at the position with Dallas Goedert and Zach Ertz both on injured reserve with ankle injuries. Rodgers has been almost exclusively utilized as a blocker thus far during his two-plus seasons with the Eagles, but Thursday, he showed flashes of the solid pass catcher that posted a 58-510-8 line for the Packers back in 2015. With neither of his injured teammates expected back for a Week 8 divisional clash against the Cowboys on Nov. 1, Rodgers could well serve as the primary tight end for that contest as well.

Eagles' Richard Rodgers: Starting role awaits
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodgers is slated to serve as the Eagles' top tight end in Thursday's game against the Giants with Zach Ertz (ankle) expected to be sidelined for 3-to-4 weeks, Mike Kaye of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Rodgers opened the campaign as the third man on the depth chart at the position, but he'll ascend to the No. 1 spot in less than half the season with Dallas Goedert (ankle) unlikely to return from injured reserve this week and Ertz now presumably sidelined until after the team's Week 9 bye. Thanks to Ertz's early departure along with a pass-heavy game script, Rodgers played a season-high 60 percent of the Eagles' offensive snaps in Sunday's 30-28 loss to the Ravens, hauling in all three of his targets for 31 yards. Rodgers could see his snap count bump up a bit more Week 7, but he may not be in store for a substantial boost in targets if the Eagles get injured receivers Alshon Jeffery (foot) and DeSean Jackson (hamstring) back in the lineup.

Eagles' Richard Rodgers: Makes trio of grabs in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodgers brought in all three of his targets for 31 yards in the Eagles' 30-28 loss to the Ravens on Sunday.

The veteran equaled a season high in receptions and checked in second on the team in receiving yardage, with the 28-year-old serving as the most experienced tight end still standing for the Eagles once Zach Ertz exited due to an ankle injury with 9:30 remaining in the contest. Rodgers has played a serviceable complementary role while Dallas Goedert (IR-ankle) has been sidelined, posting a 9-99 line over four contests while primarily serving as a blocker. However, if Goedert doesn't return when first eligible in a Thursday night Week 7 contest versus the Giants and Ertz is also sidelined for the contest, Rodgers may be in line for expanded duty.

Eagles' Richard Rodgers: Limited at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodgers (neck) was a limited participant during Wednesday's practice.

The 28-year-old saw his role decline a bit in Week 5, catching just one pass during 32 percent of the team's offensive snaps, and it appears the injury could have played a role. Rodgers was thrust into the lineup with Dallas Goedert (ankle) landing on injured reserve, leaving just Hakeem Butler as the only healthy tight end behind Zach Ertz. Rodgers will have two more chances to suit up in practice before Sunday's game against the Ravens.

Eagles' Richard Rodgers: Role declines in Week 5
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodgers caught his lone target for an 18-yard gain Sunday in the Eagles' 38-29 loss to the Steelers.

With Dallas Goedert (ankle) sidelined for a second straight game, Rodgers remained the Eagles' No. 2 tight end, but he was unable to build on the three-catch, 35-yard outing he posted in the team's Week 4 win over the 49ers. Top tight end Zach Ertz (one catch for six yards) was also silent Sunday, as wideout Travis Fulgham (10 catches for 152 yards and a touchdown) instead garnered most of the looks from quarterback Carson Wentz. The Eagles could get two more receivers in Alshon Jeffery (foot) and DeSean Jackson (hamstring) back Week 6 against the Ravens, so even with Goedert (ankle) still on injured reserve, Rodgers is unlikely to see his role in the passing game grow.

Eagles' Richard Rodgers: Draws four targets in victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodgers caught three of his four targets for 35 yards in Sunday's 25-20 win over the 49ers.

Rodgers produced more than he did a week prior, when he replaced an injured Dallas Goedert (ankle). However, the California product saw just 22 snaps, or 35 percent of the offensive total. With Goedert set to miss at least two more weeks, Rodgers should continue to see similar playing time.
