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.

Eagles' Richard Rodgers: Makes two catches in tie
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodgers caught both of his targets for 15 yards in Sunday's 23-23 tie with Cincinnati.

Rodgers had seen just two plays all year on offense prior to Dallas Goedert's ankle injury in the first quarter Sunday. Afterward, the 28-year-old saw 33 snaps and drew his first targets of the season. With Goedert set to miss time, Rodgers should continue to see significant playing time compared to the season's first couple of weeks but is unlikely to replace the 2018 second-rounder's production.

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

The Eagles signed Rodgers to a contract Tuesday.

Rodgers has a bit of experience with the Eagles and coach Doug Pederson, having spent all of 2018 and parts of last season with the team. After emerging from this past weekend with Zach Ertz and Dallas Goedert at tight end, the Eagles had a need at the position, so the 28-year-old Rodgers is a reasonable enough option. It's unclear if Rodgers will be a regular inactive on game days, though.

Richard Rodgers: Cut by Washington
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodgers was released by Washington on Saturday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Rodgers signed a contract back in March to compete for the starting TE job with Jeremy Sprinkle and Logan Thomas, but it became quickly clear the former Packer had been passed by on the depth chart. It's possible an early release could afford Rodgers time to catch on with another team's roster, but he's played just 47 snaps over the past two years and was largely ineffective during his time with the Packers as well. More than likely the 2014 third-round pick will simply be forced to bide his time in free agency until injuries force a needy team to come calling.

Redskins' Richard Rodgers: Lands in Washington
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodgers signed a contract with the Redskins on Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Rodgers was added to the roster by the Eagles in Week 16 of last season, logging eight total offensive snaps over the final two games. In the absence of Jordan Reed, there seems to be no clear No. 1 option at tight end for Washington heading into 2020. Rodgers will battle Jeremy Sprinkle and Logan Thomas for snaps next campaign, although the team could also address the position in the draft.

Eagles' Richard Rodgers: Gets action at end of 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodgers played eight offensive snaps over two games in 2019, including the Eagles' postseason loss to the Seahawks.

Rodgers started the season on injured reserve due to a foot injury, but he was waived with an injury settlement in September and became a free agent. The 28-year-old tight end rejoined the team in December while Zach Ertz dealt with a rib injury, but Rodgers was used mainly in a run-blocking role in his limited snaps. He'll be an unrestricted free agent in March, and if he sticks around with the Eagles, a similar reserve role awaits him.

Eagles' Richard Rodgers: Joins Eagles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodgers signed with Philadelphia on Tuesday.

With Zach Ertz fracturing a rib in Week 16, the team was in need of depth behind Dallas Goedert and Joshua Perkins at tight end. Rodgers was waived by the team with an injury settlement earlier this season and has yet to see NFL action in 2019.

Richard Rodgers: Hits waivers with settlement
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Eagles waived Rodgers (foot) from IR with an injury settlement Wednesday.

Rodgers wasn't able to stay healthy through the preseason, and he wasn't expected to have a major role in the offense anyway with Zach Ertz and Dallas Goedert around. If he clears waivers, he'll be free to sign with any team once healthy.

Eagles' Richard Rodgers: Lands on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Eagles placed Rodgers (foot) on injured reserve Friday, Zack Rosenblatt of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Rodgers suffered the injury during joint practices with the Ravens on Aug. 19. Regardless of his health, it seemed unlikely that the former Packer was going to see much playing time anyway, what with Dallas Goedert (calf) and fantasy stud Zach Ertz listed ahead of him on the depth chart. Rodgers won't count against the Eagles' roster limit, allowing them a little flexibility as the deadline for roster cuts draws closer.

Eagles' Richard Rodgers: Out with foot injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodgers is expected to be sidelined multiple weeks with a foot injury, Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Rodgers sustained the injury during Monday's joint practice with the Ravens and left the sideline via a cart. The specifics of the injury remain unclear, but a multi-week timetable at this point in the preseason puts him in doubt for Week 1.

Eagles' Richard Rodgers: Receives medical testing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodgers (lower leg) is undergoing more tests Tuesday, Reuben Frank of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

Rodgers suffered an apparent lower left leg injury during Monday's practice, the severity of which caused him to be carted off the field. It remains to be seen whether the No. 3 tight end will miss significant time due to injury.
