Eagles tight end Zach Ertz and running back Jordan Howard are questionable for tomorrow’s game at Miami.
Ertz is dealing with a hamstring issue that he played through against the Seattle Seahawks last week, but he missed a couple of days of practice this week and was limited yesterday.
Howard has been nursing a stinger and did not play in the Week 12 loss to the Seahawks. He has been limited all week.
The good news is that Ertz has been playing through the injury, so there seems to be a chance he will fight through it and try to play against the Dolphins. Howard’s situation seems a bit bleaker.
Philly will be getting wide receivers Alshon Jeffery and Nelson Agholor back, so that’s obviously beneficial, but if they get two players back and lose two other players in the process, it will essentially be a horizontal move for the Eagles, if not worse given the importance of Ertz and Howard to the offense.
The Birds are just 5-6 on the year.
