Zach Ertz ‘Week-To-Week’ With Rib Displacement Injury

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Eagles tight end Zach Ertz was the team’s most efficient pass catcher on Sunday, snagging six of seven targets for 58 yards.

Unfortunately, Ertz suffered a rib displacement injury in the collarbone area and is now “week-to-week,” head coach Doug Pederson announced on Monday afternoon.

Pederson also said this is not an injury Ertz will likely be able to play through.

According to Eliot Shorr-Parks, a source tells him that Ertz will not play in Week 2.

Eagles cornerback Leodis McKelvin, who left Sunday’s game early with a hamstring injury, is also week-to-week according to Pederson. The Eagles corners will have their hands full trying to contain Chicago Bears top receiver Alshon Jeffery on Monday night.
