Zach Ertz has "advanced," but remains in the league's concussion protocol.
We were expecting Ertz to be cleared for Week 13, but it's not a guarantee. His status will be updated when the Eagles release their first injury report on Wednesday. Nov 30 - 1:24 PM

Zach Ertz (concussion) has been ruled out for Thursday's Week 12 game against the Lions.

Brent Celek will get the start and play every snap. He has some streaming appeal after back-to-back solid games as a pass catcher, even if some of the damage was done in garbage time. Ertz should be ready for Week 13.

The Philadelphia Inquirer expects Zach Ertz (concussion) to miss Thursday's game against the Lions.

Beat writer Jeff McLane believes there's "no way" Ertz could play since the concussion protocol is supposed to last five days, but Jaguars WR Bryan Walters did so just last week. Either way, we don't expect Ertz to suit up. He missed Tuesday's practice.
Nov 24 - 2:46 PM

Eagles coach Chip Kelly said Zach Ertz (concussion) has been cleared to attend team meetings.

Attending meetings is one of the first steps in many in the league's concussion protocol. Despite the progress, Ertz is not at practice Monday and remains highly unlikely to gain clearance on a short week. Brent Celek will be an interesting streaming option for Thanksgiving Day.

Zach Ertz exited Sunday's Week 11 game with a concussion.

Ertz walked off the field under his own power, but headed for observation by the medical staff and was ruled done for the day at the beginning of the first quarter. He left with two catches for 12 yards on four targets.
Nov 22 - 2:06 PM

Zach Ertz caught 7-of-10 targets for 68 yards in Philadelphia's Week 10 loss to the Dolphins.

Ertz ceded some early looks to Brent Celek, but out-targeted him 10-4. Ertz has become a much more consistent part of the Eagles' offense over the past six weeks, and though he doesn't have the highest ceiling, he does boast a TE1 floor.
Nov 15 - 6:32 PM

Zach Ertz caught 5-of-6 targets for 44 yards in Week 9 against Dallas.

Ertz's targets have been up over the last four games, but he continues to be held out of the end-zone. He's on pace for only 58 catches and 628 yards. Ertz will be a mid-range TE2 for Week 10 against Miami.
Nov 9 - 1:52 AM

Zach Ertz caught 5-of-8 targets for 63 yards in the Eagles' Week 7 loss to the Panthers.

With Jordan Matthews struggling with drops, Ertz lead the Eagles in receiving. He should have had a touchdown, but Sam Bradford underthrew him on a pass broken up by Josh Norman. Ertz has been playing an every-down role over the last two weeks. He'll be a TE2 option when the Eagles come out of their bye in Week 9.
Oct 26 - 1:17 AM

Zach Ertz played 67-of-78 snaps Week 6 against the Giants.

The 86-percent snap rate was the highest of the season for Ertz, who has seen his share of snaps steadily increase the last several weeks. Ertz also was second on the team in targets with seven. The pass game is faltering, but Ertz has finally established himself as a factor. He will be worth streaming consideration this week against a Panthers defense which just gave up 140 yards to Jimmy Graham.
Oct 20 - 9:16 AM

Zach Ertz caught 4-of-7 targets for 43 yards in the Eagles' Week 6 win over the Giants on Monday night.

His seven targets were second only to Jordan Matthews' 11 on the Eagles. Ertz was targeted in the end zone by Sam Bradford in the second half, but the ball was badly under-thrown and picked off. Ertz will be a TE2 next week in Carolina.
Oct 20 - 1:03 AM

Zach Ertz caught 5-of-7 targets for 60 yards Week 5 against the Saints.

It was the most targets Ertz had seen since Week 2 and his highest receiving total of the season. With the Eagles' passing offense finally starting to click, Ertz could establish himself as a low-end TE1. He will be a very good streaming option next week against the Giants.
Oct 11 - 5:48 PM

Zach Ertz caught 2-of-3 targets for 11 yards Week 4 against the Redskins.

Ertz day could have looked a lot better, but he had a bullet of a touchdown pass from Sam Bradford called back on an illegal formation penalty. Still, Ertz has just five targets over the last two games and is playing behind Brent Celek. He will not be a recommended start next week against the Saints. After four games, Ertz is on pace for 40 catches for 416 yards.
Oct 4 - 5:58 PM

Zach Ertz secured 2-of-2 targets for 30 yards in the Eagles' Week 3 win over the Jets.

While Ertz has overtaken Brent Celek as the Eagles' No. 1 tight end this season, he has delivered receiving yardage totals of 46, 17, and 30 through three games, failing to score a touchdown. Ertz will barely be in the TE1 conversation when the Eagles take on the Redskins in Week 4.
Sep 27 - 4:32 PM

Zach Ertz caught 3-of-7 targets for 17 yards in Philadelphia's Week 2 loss to the Cowboys.

The good news is, Ertz was the Eagles' second-most targeted pass catcher. The bad news is, he allowed himself to get swallowed up on both of Sam Bradford's interceptions, the first of which came in the end zone. Ertz's targets and snap counts have been a positive through the first two weeks of the season, but he has only six catches to show for it. He'll remain on the TE1 borderline for next week's game against the Jets.
Sep 20 - 8:39 PM

Eagles TE Zach Ertz played 70 percent of the offensive snaps on Monday night.

Ertz only broke the 70 percent mark three times last season, and Brent Celek played fewer snaps on Monday than he did in any game last year. Ertz did not do much with the opportunity, converting on just 3-of-8 targets for 46 yards, but he saw the third-most targets on the team. If he continues to see that many looks, he will be a solid TE1 all season.
