Zach Ertz injury update Ertz suffered an ankle injury in the Eagles' loss to the Ravens and eventually left the game after playing hobbled for most of the contest. According to Fox Sports' Jay Glazer, Ertz is scheduled to have an MRI on Monday that will help determine the severity of his injury. Because the Eagles are playing on Thursday night, it seems possible that Ertz may miss time pending the results of this injury.
We wrote the following about him at the time: The Eagles clearly think more of Croom than [former practice squad tight end Jordan] Franks. Croom, also 24, boasts more NFL experience with 22 receptions for 259 yards (11.8) average and one touchdown in 15 games played (three starts) back in 2018. Croom actually led all Buffalo tight ends in receptions that year before spending the 2019 season on injured reserve.
The Philadelphia Eagles spent the past three weeks as hefty underdogs, but the tables will turn for Thursday night’s matchup with the New York Giants. The Eagles are favored by 5.5 points over their NFC East rival, according to DraftKings. The point total is set at 45 points.
