Ertz (rib/shoulder) may be facing an extended absence, Philly.com reports. "It's a dangerous situation with a displaced bone," head coach Doug Pederson said. "You are talking up around the neck and head area, so any type of blow again could do further damage to that. That's why it's a week-to-week deal to see how it heals and recovers."

2016

2015

No question Ertz has more upside than 30-year-old Brent Celek, but Ertz still can't get on the field enough to break out. Ertz played just half of the Eagles' snaps last season (up from 40.8 percent as a rookie) while the sure-handed Celek, who is also valued for his blocking, played 69.3 percent of snaps. After splitting targets in 2013, Ertz had nearly 40 more than Celek last season, but that was only enough to barely make him a top-15 fantasy tight end, as he caught just three of 12 red-zone targets for one score. At 6-5, 250, with 4.76 speed, Ertz has the physical tools to be a playmaker, but he might not realize it until he improves as a blocker to keep Celek sidelined. A blocking tight end might be even more needed this year with the additions of workhorse running back DeMarco Murray and injury-prone quarterback Sam Bradford. And even with Jeremy Maclin's departure, targets likely won't be more plentiful. Jordan Matthews will soak up a lot of Maclin's 143 targets from last year, as will rookie Nelson Agholor and a backfield of Murray, Darren Sproles and Ryan Mathews.

2014

A second-round draft pick last season, Ertz lived up to his billing, garnering slightly more targets than veteran Brent Celek (56-51). Ertz proved too quick for linebackers, and when teams covered him with defensive backs, the physical receiver used his 6-5, 250, frame to outwork them for the ball. A good route runner with nice hands, Ertz was limited to 428 snaps last year (Celek had 791) mostly because of his unrefined blocking. While he likely will improve that skill, he was drafted to catch passes, and this season he should have even more opportunities. Even if Celek has another 50 targets, Ertz could pad his targets with a large share of the 126 DeSean Jackson had last season. Jeremy Maclin is back after missing last season with a knee injury, and the Eagles drafted wideout Jordan Matthews in the second round, but the team hopes Ertz will become a primary receiver in the passing game. He likely will be split wide often this season after being used in tight and in the slot last year, as coach Chip Kelly looks to create mismatches in the passing game. Improved play from quarterback Nick Foles will help, too.

2013

A second-round pick in this year's draft, Ertz finds himself behind Brent Celek and probably James Casey as well. Not known for his blocking, Ertz has enough athleticism to be a threat down the seam. As with most rookie tight ends, he's a long shot to be anything more than an occasional contributor in the offense, however.
