One of Doug Pederson’s favorite phrases to say about injured players is “trending in the right direction.” So when the Eagles head coach used it to describe rehabbing Pro Bowl tight end Zach Ertz, it was a very good sign. He still hasn’t been ruled out for Monday night after being activated to the 21-day practice window on Nov. 16.
Pederson revealed that Ertz had participated in Wednesday’s team walk-through and how he responded to the pseudo-practice would go a long way in determining if he could suit up against Seattle. The Eagles have two more practices, plus a walk-through, before Monday night to chart his progress. Ertz would have to be added to the active roster on Saturday for him to be available.
