Ertz back on the practice field-- Wed Sep 9 4:08 pm --
Working way back from core muscle injury
The Eagles returned to practice on Wednesday with every player practicing, including tight end Zach Ertz. Ertz missed the preseason because of a core muscle injury. The Eagles hoped that Ertz would return in time for Monday's season opener against the Falcons. His status remains undetermined.
FF Today's Take:Zach Ertz has retained plenty of fantasy appeal in Philly's up tempo offense despite missing a chunk of time this preseason. Fantasy owners shouldn't expect him to be a viable starting option for Week 1 but now that he has returned to practice, he should see his weekly fantasy ranking move up over the next month.
TE Zach Ertz won't play this preseason-- Fri Aug 14 10:34 am --
FF Today's Take:The details on Ertz's injury are scarce but it sounds like the Eagles tight end is dealing with a hernia issue. In any case, this a significant blow to Ertz's upside for fantasy purposes. Brent Celek is still the superior blocker in the eyes of Chip Kelly so it may take a few games before Ertz works his way back into mix in the Eagles offense.
