Draft Scout News

09/06/15 - TE Zach Ertz, has missed the entire preseason with what the Eagles described as a core muscle injury. Chip Kelly said Saturday he does not know yet whether Ertz will be ready to play against the Falcons. The Eagles only kept three tight ends on the roster after keeping four last season
08/14/15 - TE Zach Ertz underwent groin surgery on Friday and will miss the rest of the preseason.
Coach Chip Kelly said the injury was to a "core muscle," and several news outlets specified it as a partially torn groin.
Dr. William Meyers, who recently fixed the groin of Houston Texans running back Arian Foster, performed the surgery on Ertz in Philadelphia.
Center Jason Kelce told the Philadelphia Daily News that Ertz's tear was not as significant as the one that sidelined Kelce for five weeks last season. Ertz is expected to be ready for the season opener Sept. 14 at the Atlanta Falcons.
Ertz, a second-round pick in 2013, caught 58 passes for 702 yards and three touchdowns in 2014.
Meanwhile, Kelly said quarterback Sam Bradford will not play in the preseason opener Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts. Kelly said Bradford will play in the second game, Aug. 22 against the Baltimore Ravens.
12/24/14 - TE Zach Ertz played a season-high 70 snaps last week against the Redskins, catching a franchise-record 15 passes for 115 yards.
11/19/14 - TE Zach Ertz has been getting fewer snaps. He played 64.5 percent of the snaps in the first four games, but has played only 41.7 percent of them in the last six. In an attempt to jump-start the run game, Chip Kelly has been using Brent Celek rather than Ertz in most of the team's three-wide receiver sets.
"I get open as well as anybody in the game," said Ertz. "The blocking's coming along well. It's not a negative aspect of my game any more. But Coach makes the final decision. Brent is one of the best blocking tight ends in the game."
