The Eagles QB Carson Wentz and TE Zach Ertz form a deadly duo in Philadelphia.

There was still a glimmer of hope that the Eagles could activate Zach Ertz for today’s prime-time showdown against Seattle. Apparently, the ankle of the tight Pro Bowl end just isn’t in good enough shape to try. The Eagles will rely on a rotation from Dallas Goedert and Richard Rodgers in Week 12.

According to NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo, Ertz will not be taken off the IR for Monday Night Football, but there is a chance he may return against Green Bay next week. The news doesn’t surprise anyone after hearing Doug Pederson’s comments on Saturday. The Eagles’ head coach told reporters the team were « a little careful » with Ertz and hinted that they would make him available next week.

« It was good to have Zach on the practice field. We are still a little careful with him, ”said Pederson before the tour on Saturday. « We’ll get through today [Saturday] but I don’t think he’ll make it through this game. I hope it will be available next week. ”

No wonder, given Doug Pederson’s comments the other day, but #Eagles TE Zach Ertz won’t be activated from the IR ahead of today’s game against the #Seahawks, sources say. Maybe before this Sunday against the #Packers.

It was a bit of a disappointment considering that Ertz has been « leaning in the right direction » all week, despite Pederson making it clear that the 30-year-old hadn’t taken a setback from his high-glitch sprain. Ertz was born on Nov. activated for the 21-day practice window. 16 so he is entitled to a further week. Remember, there have been rumors that due to her insecure contractual situation, the limping star doesn’t want to risk re-injury by coming back early.

« No setback. I was optimistic, ”said Pederson. “You have just finished a week of practice and feel Zach a little too. There is no setback. There is nothing. Just the fact that he probably won’t be ready. ”

The Eagles will roll against Seattle with a running back duo of Miles Sanders and Boston Scott. There was hope – especially from Sanders himself – that the team could remove newcomer Jordan Howard from the training team after the team protected him earlier this week.

The bleeding pro bowler wasn’t quite up to date, however, as he keeps getting used to the Eagles’ offense. Scott will serve as the primary backup despite battling an abdominal injury.

« Jordan looked good. He sort of got it, he’s very familiar with the terminology, with what we’re doing, and gets him back to the crime, ”said Pederson. “Jordan, as we go every week, could possibly play a role in the future. But like where Boston is this week. ”

Eagles have dismissed RB Adrian Killins from the training team and protected the following players from the training squad:

Philadelphia has also activated Corey Clement from the Reserve / COVID-19 list so he should be available as a third defender. The team also has rookie Jason Huntley on the active roster and Elijah Holyfield on the training team. Uncovered rookie Adrian Killins was born on Nov. released. 25 on the same day, the team protected Howard.

« We’ll see where Boston is, » Pederson said of his return schedule for Monday. « Boston had a good week of practice, he’s feeling good. Had no real problems or setbacks. ”
