Ertz caught nine of 13 targets for 91 yards and two touchdowns in Monday night's 23-17 overtime win over the Giants.
Ertz stepped up with Philadelphia's pass-catching options depleted, scoring both the game-tying and game-winning touchdowns. The tight end led the Eagles in all major receiving categories, grabbing a team-long, 30-yard reception for good measure as well. Should Philly's receiving corps remain ravaged by injury in Week 15 versus Washington, Ertz would figure to continue playing a prominent role, but considering he's posted at least nine catches for 90 yards in four of his last five outings, he's already firing on all cylinders.
Ertz (hamstring) is active for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.
Ertz was only able to practice once this week in a limited fashion, but the Eagles signed off on him playing after he completed a pregame workout earlier Sunday without incident. Philadelphia hasn't indicated that Ertz will be limited at all in Week 13, but if he is, Dallas Goedert would stand to pick up more reps at tight end than usual.
Ertz (hamstring), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Dolphins, is expected to play, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Rapoport's report essentially aligns with the sentiment about Ertz's status following Friday's practice, when teammate Dallas Goedert told Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia that he expects Philadelphia's top tight end to play. An official decision on Ertz's availability will be made around 11:30 a.m. ET, when the Eagles will release their seven-man inactive list.
The Eagles list Ertz (hamstring) as questionable for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.
Ertz will unsurprisingly take an injury designation into the weekend after the hamstring issue caused him to turn in just one limited practice this week. Despite Ertz's lack of on-field reps leading up to Sunday, the Eagles are apparently optimistic the tight end will be good to go for gameday, as teammate Dallas Goedert suggested would be the case Friday when he spoke to Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia. Ertz has garnered at least 11 targets in each of the Eagles' past three games, but he could take on a smaller role in the passing attack in Week 13 with the team slated to welcome its top two wideouts -- Alshon Jeffery (ankle) and Nelson Agholor (knee) -- back to the lineup.
Teammate Dallas Goedert said he expects Ertz (hamstring) to play in Sunday's game against the Dolphins, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
Ertz was held out of practice Wednesday and Thursday but returned to the field Friday. It isn't clear if Ertz was a limited or full participant in the session, and he'll likely be listed as questionable even if the Eagles fully expect him to play this weekend. For what it's worth, Ertz confirmed that he's on track to suit up, saying "See ya Sunday" when he walked past reporters, per Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Ertz (hamstring) will practice Friday, and there's growing optimism that he'll be available for Sunday's game against the Dolphins, Zach Berman of The Athletic reports.
It won't be clear until after Friday's practice how much Ertz was able to do in the Eagles' final session of Week 13, but even if he goes down as a limited participant, that would represent a step up from what he did either of the previous two days. The Eagles will reveal whether Ertz carries a designation into Sunday shortly after practice concludes, but a final call on his availability may not be made until game day.
Ertz (hamstring) was estimated as a non-participant on Thursday's practice report.
The Eagles have held just one session this week, but Ertz didn't join his teammates on the field Wednesday and instead worked out on the side with the training staff. Through six-plus NFL seasons, he's missed just five of a possible 107 games, and it's unclear if there's about to be a sixth. Friday's report should provide an inkling of Ertz's odds to play Sunday in Miami.
Ertz missed Wednesday's practice due to a hamstring injury.
During the portion of the session open to the media, Ertz worked out a side field, per Tim McManus of ESPN.com. The lack of activity with the team manifested itself as a "DNP" on the Eagles' first report for Week 13, leaving Ertz as the highest-profile player on the roster to track as the week goes on. Behind Ertz, Dallas Goedert is next up at tight end.
Ertz was seen working out on the side during the portion of Wednesday's practice that was open to the media, Tim McManus of ESPN.com reports.
The Eagles haven't previously revealed that Ertz is tending to an injury, but the team's first practice report of Week 13 will provide an explanation for why the tight end wasn't participating with the main group. Given that Ertz has logged 36 targets over the last three contests, it's possible that the Eagles are simply giving the 29-year-old some much-needed rest.
Ertz hauled in 12 of his 14 targets for 91 yards and a touchdown in the team's Week 12 loss to the Seahawks.
Ertz was one of Carson Wentz's few healthy receivers and took advantage by drawing 14 targets -- his second-highest total of the season. Nearly all of that production came in second half, as he registered just three catches for 19 yards in the first two quarters. Nevertheless, Ertz now has at least nine catches and 90 yards in three consecutive contests. Though it appears Alshon Jeffery (ankle) and Nelson Agholor (knee) have the potential to return next week against the Dolphins, their continued absence would ensure that Ertz continues to see plenty of targets.
Ertz caught nine of 11 targets for 94 yards in Sunday's 17-10 loss to the Patriots.
The catches, targets and yards were all team highs. Carson Wentz didn't have a lot of time in the pocket against the Pats' pass rush, particularly after right tackle Lane Johnson (head) left the game, and as a result Eagles' tight ends ended up hauling in 12 of Wentz's 20 completions as he had to get rid of the ball quickly. Ertz has now caught 18 passes on 22 targets for 197 yards and a TD over the last two games, and his hot streak could continue Week 12 against a Seahawks defense that's struggled against TEs this season.
Ertz caught nine of 11 targets for 103 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 22-14 win over the Bears.
Ertz led the team in targets and was the only Eagles player with more than 39 receiving yards. He caught a beautiful 25-yard touchdown pass in the second quarter, doubling his season output in that category. This was Ertz's first 100-yard game since Week 16 of last season, giving fantasy owners a glimpse of the tight end they expected on draft day. Coming off his best game of the season, Ertz will turn his attention to a Week 11 home matchup with the Patriots following Philadelphia's bye.
Ertz caught two of four targets for 20 yards in Sunday's 31-13 win over the Bills.
Ertz set a season low in yardage for a second straight week while also watching fellow tight end Dallas Goedert score a touchdown for the second game in a row. It's too early to press the panic button on the star tight end, but a Week 9 dud from Ertz against the Bears would certainly set off alarm bells for his owners, especially if Goedert continues to outplay him.
Ertz had two catches (five targets) for 38 yards in Sunday's 37-10 loss to Dallas.
Ertz -- and the Eagles' passing attack as a whole -- couldn't get into any sort of rhythm against the Cowboys' relentless defense. The star tight end set new season lows in receptions, yards and targets in one fell swoop. Outside of this dud, Ertz had been the model of consistency with averages of 5.5 receptions and 61.0 yards over his previous six contests. The recent emergence of fellow tight end Dallas Goedert (four receptions, 69 yards and a touchdown) could frustrate Ertz's fantasy owners, but Sunday's role reversal should be written off as an anomaly, as the latter is still the top dog heading into a matchup against the Bills on Sunday.
Ertz secured four of nine targets for 54 yards and lost a fumble in the Eagles' 38-20 loss to the Vikings on Sunday.
Ertz mostly was held in check against a tough Vikings defense, and his fumble came in Vikings territory midway through the fourth quarter and Philadelphia attempting to come back from a 38-20 deficit. The veteran tight end's reception and receiving yardage tallies tied for a season low, even as he logged his second-highest amount of targets on the campaign. Ertz will look to bounce back against the Cowboys in a Week 7 matchup.
Ertz caught five of seven targets for 57 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 31-6 win over the Jets.
Ertz found the end zone from 11 yards out less than a minute before halftime for his first touchdown of the season. The star tight end is coming off consecutive eight-TD campaigns, so he can be expected to pick up the scoring pace moving forward. Next up is a Week 6 date with the Vikings.
Ertz brought in seven of eight targets for 65 yards in the Eagles' 34-27 win over the Packers on Thursday.
Ertz paced the Eagles in both receptions and receiving yards on the night, as the passing game took a back seat to the stellar work of Jordan Howard and Miles Sanders on the ground. The veteran tight end is right on pace for his usual hefty workload through the first four games, as he sports a 24-255 line on 30 targets thus far in 2019. Ertz will look to cross the goal line for the first time in a Week 5 battle against the Jets a week from Sunday.
Ertz secured four of seven targets for 64 yards in the Eagles' 27-24 loss to the Lions on Sunday.
Ertz was expected to see an avalanche of targets Sunday with both Alshon Jeffery (calf) and DeSean Jackson (groin) out of action, and although he turned in a serviceable line overall, it was arguably underwhelming given expectations. Ertz did boast a higher YPC than usual, thanks in part to a game-long 23-yard catch. The veteran tight end now has sandwiched a pair of seven-target tallies around the whopping 16 looks he logged versus the Falcons in Week 2, but he's still in search of his first touchdown of the campaign. He'll have another opportunity to break the ice on that front in relatively prompt fashion, considering the Eagles face the Packers in a Thursday night Week 4 tilt.
Ertz and Nelson Agholor are expected to draw increased attention from Carson Wentz while fellow pass catchers DeSean Jackson (abdomen), Alshon Jeffery (calf) and Dallas Goedert (calf) recover from injuries, Lauren Williams of MLive.com reports.
With Goedert, Jackson and Jeffery all unavailable for the majority of Sunday's 24-20 loss to Atlanta, Ertz reached 16 targets for the sixth time in his career. Every previous instance resulted in triple-digit yardage, but the Falcons held him to eight catches for 72 yards. Ertz and Agholor should be busy once again Sunday against the Lions, but they'll also draw a lot of attention from the defense.
Ertz caught eight passes (on 16 targets) for 72 yards in Sunday's 24-20 loss to Atlanta.
Ertz actually saw more targets than he did in his Week 1 explosion -- eight catches, 154 yards and two touchdowns -- but the production paled in comparison. It was still a solid performance from the start tight end, especially in PPR formats. Ertz may end up seeing double-digit targets yet again next week against the Lions, as the Eagles' starting wideouts (Alshon Jeffery and DeSean Jackson) both left Sunday's contest and never returned.
