Zach Ertz has COVID-19


The Philadelphia Eagles put tight end Zach Ertz’s name on the list of players unavailable due to COVID-19 on Monday.

The 30-year-old athlete was tested positive for the virus. His status for next Monday night’s game against the Dallas Cowboys is uncertain.

According to NFL protocols regarding COVID-19, a doubly vaccinated player, which Ertz appears to be, can reconnect with his teammates if he has no symptoms and has had two negative results at at least 24 hours apart.

In two games in 2021, the veteran made three catches for gains of 30 yards. He still has not found the pay zone. Invited to the Pro Bowl game three times since the start of his career, Ertz was limited to just 11 games during the 2020 campaign, due to an injury.

In addition, the Eagles will be without the services of defensive lineman Brandon Graham for the remainder of the season.

Head coach Nick Sirianni said at a press conference on Monday that his player had suffered a ruptured Achilles tendon. He did that in the Eagles’ 17-11 loss to the San Francisco 49ers last Sunday.

The Pennsylvania side are 1-1 so far this season.
