The Eagles won’t have rehabbing tight end Zach Ertz or geezer left tackle Jason Peters for tomorrow night’s Linc game with the Seattle Seahawks.
Ertz has been on Injured Reserve since suffering an ankle in the Week 6 against the Ravens, and coach Doug Pederson said that it is unlikely that the Pro Bowl tight end will be activated ahead of Monday night.
“It’s been good to have Zach out on the practice field. However, we’re still a little cautious with him,” Pederson said. “We’ll get through today, but I don’t think he’ll be able to make this game. I’m hoping that next week he’ll be available.”
The Eagles ruled out three players ahead of Monday night’s game: safety Rudy Ford (hamstring), tackle Lane Johnson (ankle), and guard Sua Opeta (back).
Johnson said on Friday that he will undergo season-ending surgery to repair his ankle. Opeta was added to the injury report on Saturday and promptly placed on Injured Reserve.
Tackle Jason Peters was also added to the injury report Saturday with a toe injury and he is questionable for Monday night’s game.
