Eagles TE Zach Ertz has been cleared to play in Sunday's Wild Card game against the Seahawks. He'll be doing so through what's been reported as a cracked rib and lacerated kidney. Ertz is clearly at risk of being limited and/or knocked out of this game, making him a shaky fantasy play. Dallas Goedert remains our top-ranked TE on the slate.

Eagles TE Zach Ertz is officially active for today's Wild Card game against the Seahawks. He's a risk/reward fantasy option playing through a cracked rib and lacerated kidney.

NBC Philadelphia's John Clark hears that there's "optimism" that Eagles TE Zach Ertz (kidney, rib) will play against the Seahawks on Sunday. "He has passed some very stringent tests, will need to pass some more to be cleared," Clark adds. We'll continue to keep an eye out for updates -- but we just adjusted our Wild Card Round projections for both Ertz and TE Dallas Goedert.

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.

Eagles TE Zach Ertz suffered a lacerated kidney in last week's win over the Cowboys, in addition to a cracked rib, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Ertz won't play against the Giants today but hasn't been ruled out if Philly advances to Wild Card Weekend, per Rapoport.
