TE - PHI - IR
Week 7 Outlook
Eagles tight end Dallas Goedert, who is working his way back from a fractured ankle that he suffered at the end of September, is on track to return for the team's Week 10 matchup against New York Giants, according to NFL insider Mike Garafolo. The Eagles have a bye week in Week 9.
There had been some speculation that Goedert could return as early as Week 8 against the Cowboys, but Garafolo's report seems to throw some cold water on that notion. Monitor Goedert's status after the team's Week 7 matchup against the Giants to see if the team activates his 21-day practice window. With Goedert and fellow tight end Zach Ertz both out, Richard Rodgers will be the starting tight end in Philadelphia.
The Philadelphia Eagles have placed TE Dallas Goedert on short-term IR with a small fracture in his ankle.
Goedert will miss at least three weeks with the ankle injury, so fantasy managers should monitor his progress. He is eligible to return Week 7 against the Giants. In a subsequent move, the Eagles added former Cardinals WR Hakeem Butler to the active roster and plan to use him as a TE.
Philadelphia Eagles TE Dallas Goedert has a very small fracture in his ankle that will not require surgery.
This is good news for the Eagles, but Goedert is still expected to miss a couple of weeks. Philadelphia's WR core is depleted, and Goedert has been one of QB Carson Wentz's favorite targets so far this year. With Goedert out, look for WR Greg Ward and TE Zach Ertz to see increased workloads.
Philadelphia Eagles TE Dallas Goedert was thought to be dealing with a high-ankle sprain, but further testing has revealed a fracture.
Eagles HC Doug Pederson stated on Monday that Goedert will miss "an extended period of time". Goedert has been off to a fast start this season, recording 12 catches for 131 yards and a touchdown in his first two games, but saw only 6 snaps Sunday against the Bengals before injuring his ankle. Philadelphia's WR core is really thin right now due to injuries, and losing Goedert won't help matters. Look for TE Zach Ertz to see a significant amount of targets in the upcoming weeks.
According to Eagles head coach Doug Pederson, TE Dallas Goedert will miss “some time” after injuring his ankle early in the team’s Week 3 game vs. the Bengals.
Goedert went down early against the Bengals and was ruled out for the remainder of the game with an ankle injury. Greg Ward and Zach Ertz were the primary beneficiaries of Goedert’s absence. Ward saw 11 targets in the game, while Ertz saw 10. Ward should be a hot waiver wire pickup as the Eagles’ receiving corps has been decimated by injuries to start the season.
