Eagles TE Dallas Goedert To Miss Time

The Eagles’ offense looked bad yet again Sunday in their tie with Cincinnati, and now the unit is taking another hit. Young tight end Dallas Goedert will miss time with an ankle injury he suffered against the Bengals, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network tweets.

It looks like it’s a high-ankle issue for Goedert, which could have him out at least a few weeks. The South Dakota State product looked like he was going to play a huge role in the offense this year, as he had at least eight targets in each of the first two games. The 2018 second-rounder had 58 catches for 607 yards and five touchdowns last year.

Philly of course loves to run their two-tight end sets with Goedert and Zach Ertz, and this certainly isn’t going to help Carson Wentz snap out of his funk. Wentz has been downright atrocious so far, with multiple interceptions in all three games, and the passing offense has consistently looked out of sync.

Goedert was a potential lone bright spot, but it now looks like he’ll be on the shelf for a while. The 0-2-1 Eagles will be shorthanded when they travel to take on the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday Night Football next week. Left tackle Jason Peters also went down toward the end of the game, and we’re still awaiting an update on his status.

    I said it after last week as well…nows not the time for ownership to b tied to these players…salary cap crunch next year…sell while u can!

      Sell to who? Few GMs will be interested in investing in old, injury prone players that are running on fumes if they also have cap limitations to contend with.

    • phillyballers

      Howie is great with the Cap that’s not the issue. He can’t draft and shouldn’t be in charge of a draft. Wasted pick on Jalen Hurts. An entire draft class has been let go. It’s very bad player scouting or it’s the guy with the final say.

      • strotorious

        He’s not that great at managing the cap. Pretty much his only move is restructuring deals to push the cap hit to later seasons and it seems they’re close to the limit on how much more value they can get from doing that. At some point they’ll have to do a reset and it’s looking like this is the year.

        As far as who, the big prize would be Ertz. He’s already unhappy about his contract. Desean Jackson could be plug and play for pretty much any offense. They still have depth on the D line so they could part with someone like Malik Jackson.

          DJax plug and play? He can’t stay healthy and nobody would offer up anything for him at this point.

    I have Goedert on my fantasy team. Put him on IR so I can pick someone else up without losing him.
