TE - ARI
Zach Ertz (knee) underwent surgery to repair his ACL and MCL and is beginning rehab with the hope of being ready to start the 2023 season.
Despite his optimism, it will be hard to have enough trust in Ertz to draft him next summer. Coming off a devastating injury at his age is no small task, and it might be a while before he fully recovers. In addition, he may find himself in a timeshare with rookie Trey McBride, who will try to create a role for himself within the Cardinals' offense down the stretch.
The Cardinals placed Zach Ertz on injured reserve Saturday.
Ertz had previously been ruled out with a season-ending knee injury. Fantasy managers should expect Trey McBride to see an increase in snaps in Ertz’s absence. Ertz remains under contract with the Cardinals through 2024 and will look to rehab before training camp next season.
Zach Ertz has officially been ruled out for the remainder of the season after suffering a knee injury against the Rams.
Ertz went down in a heap of pain in the first quarter on Sunday, and was immediately ruled out. The 32-year-old will now miss the remainder of the season after operating as a top-5 fantasy TE through the first ten weeks of the season. He concludes the campaign with a 47-406-4 receiving line on 69 targets. Rookie TE Trey McBride will be the next man up for the Cardinals and should see consistent playing time down the stretch of 2022.
Zach Ertz is expected to miss multiple weeks with the knee injury he suffered on Sunday.
Ertz was spotted in a knee brace. The team does suspect that his ACL is intact, but Ertz will undergo an MRI on Monday to determine the full extent of his injury. Rookie TE Trey McBride saw more snaps in Ertz's absence and could be an intriguing streamer in his absence at a shallow position.
Zach Ertz was carted off during the Cardinals’ game Sunday against the Rams with a knee injury.
Ertz suffered the knee injury early in the Cardinals’ game Sunday. If he is unable to return, it would be a big loss for an offense that is already without Kyler Murray. We will update you here when more is known about Ertz’s status.
