Eagles TE Zach Ertz day-to-day after rib injury

Monday September 12th, 2016

Philadelphia Eagles tight end Zach Ertz may be listed as day-to-day with a displaced rib, coach Doug Pederson told reporters on Monday.

Ertz sustained the injury in the first quarter, but stayed in to finish the game with six passes for 58 yards. Philadelphia may use Brent Celek at tight end if Ertz misses extended time.

Ertz will continue to be assessed by team doctors before it is determined when he will be able to rejoin the team in practice.

The Eagles may have won, but hold off on Carson Wentz's coronation

The Eagles won Sunday's season opener 29–10 over the Cleveland Browns. The Eagles will head to Soldier Field for next Monday's game against the Chicago Bears.
