Eagles TE Zach Ertz (ribs) has been ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Giants. It’s a bit of a surprise after he played through the fractured rib last week. Ertz’s absence means an every-down role for TE Dallas Goedert — and likely more targets for guys like WR Greg Ward and RB Miles Sanders.

Eagles HC Doug Pederson said Friday that TE Zach Ertz (rib, kidney) still hasn't been cleared for contact. Pederson added that Ertz is scheduled for more tests on Saturday to determine whether he can play vs. Seattle. We'll look for another update on his status then.

Eagles HC Doug Pederson said Wednesday morning that TE Zach Ertz still hasn't been cleared for contact. He's reportedly dealing with both a lacerated kidney and a cracked rib. The kidney is the bigger issue and has Ertz iffy for Sunday's game against the Seahawks.
