Zach Ertz lands on Eagles injury report

The Eagles had some good news on their injury report Thursday as cornerback Patrick Robinson was a full participant for the second day in a row to remain on track to play this weekend despite suffering a concussion against the 49ers last Sunday.

That development was joined by a less positive one. Tight end Zach Ertz was listed as a limited participant due to a hamstring injury.

Ertz was not on the injury report at all on Wednesday, so he may have picked up the injury during Thursday’s session. Friday will bring an opportunity to hear from coach Doug Pederson about Ertz’ condition before the team makes injury designations for their game against the Broncos.

Cornerback Ronald Darby was also limited in practice as he continues working his way back from the dislocated ankle he suffered in the season opener.

  1. Brent Celek had better start stretching to get ready to play Sunday. The old warhorse may get his chance to turn back the clock about 8 years.

  2. Im thinking darby will be back after bye vs cowboys as well. And i too thpught darby was done for the year. Actually i remember telling my wife that i wouldnt be surprised if he misses time next year as well because of that ankle injury. I thought for sure there was severe ligament damage or some nerve damage. I still remember Leonard weaver’s knee injury in week one 2010 vs packers. Turned out to be a career ender. I also remember those sweet looking kelly green jerseys they wore that day. Speaking of jerseys, i see the eagles are wearing their all black jerseys on sunday. Am i the only eagles fan that liked the black jerseys with the green pants? I think that looked even better than all black. Its been a few years since they wore that uniform.

  3. I think if ertz cant play or if hes very limited, the eagles should roll more with trey burton. I read the broncos struggle vs TE and i dont think celek can really expose that. He would definitely get a lot of snaps though. Hopefully Big V can hold his own vs von miller and shane ray. Lots of chip blocking from te and rb.

  4. Can he play left tackle? If not then good luck Wentz with Denver defense coming to town.

  5. Not liking that Ertz could be out but could be a blessing in disguise.

    Play Celek, who has always been a better blocker than Ertz will ever be, and against the Denver D they will need to keep the tight end home to help Big V anyways.

    Put Burton in then on passing downs and the offense as a whole probably won’t miss much. Going to have to run the ball some anyways against that D. Legarrette Blount, and Dougie’s new toy Jay Ajayi.
