Eagles TE Zach Ertz won’t Play vs. Rams
Even at less than 100-percent, Zach Ertz is better than most tight ends at full strength.
The Philadelphia Eagles, though, will not have his services today. Ertz was not cleared to play with a concussion, keeping him off the field when they face the Los Angeles Rams today.
Ertz did not practice at all this week due to a concussion suffered in the Seattle game.
With Ertz out, the Eagles will likely go tight end-by-committee between Trey Burton and Brent Celek, each seeing an increase in snaps this week.
Burton will likely see most of the pass targets, with Celek helping with Aaron Donald in the blocking game..
The remaining inactives are OT Will Beatty, WR Marcus Johnson, DT Elijah Qualls, RB Wendell Smallwood, QB Nate Sudfeld and LB Joe Walker.
For the Rams, WR Robert Woods, OLB Connor Barwin, RB Lance Dunbar, QB Brandon Allen, RB Justin Davis, OLB Carlos Thompson and OT Cornelius Lucas.
The big blow for the Rams is losing Woods, who is 10 games this season has 47 catches for 703 yards and four touchdowns.
