Eagles tight end Zach Ertz and cornerback Leodis McKelvin will not suit up for Philadelphia’s game against the Bears on Monday Night Football. Both players were officially ruled out by head coach Doug Pederson on Saturday. Read more »
Zach Ertz and Leodis McKelvin will not practice Thursday, but they haven’t been ruled out for the Eagles’ game Monday night against the Bears, according to Doug Pederson. Everyone else on the 53-man roster will practice, including Trey Burton, who didn’t play against the Browns because of a calf injury.
If Burton takes Ertz’s spot in Chicago, Pederson noted the game plan will not change “at all.” The Eagles’ head coach added that he had a plan to get Burton involved against Cleveland if he would’ve played. Ertz, meanwhile, is still battling a displaced rib below his left collarbone that he injured in the first quarter on Sunday.
“He’s progressed well. He’s feeling better. We just can’t risk putting him back out there right now with any kind of contact on that shoulder,” Pederson said. “This rib is just displaced about seven millimeters. It just has to work itself back together, tighten whatever is up in there.” Read more »

Marcus Smith suffered a concussion during practice on Friday, the Eagles announced. Jordan Matthews suffered a left knee sprain, but Doug Pederson told SiriusXM that Matthews will just be sore for a few days. Mike Martin (left knee sprain) also left practice early, while Nolan Carroll (ankle) was given the day off.
Zach Ertz, who was also evaluated for a head injury, was cleared, but he said he was “not happy” with how some of his teammates have approached the hitting periods. Ertz was hit low by Blake Countess today and by Rodney McLeod two days ago, while Matthews was hit low by Jalen Mills when he suffered his injury.
“Guys gotta be pros. Rookies coming in, they don’t know what the atmosphere is like, the respect that’s given in practice,” Ertz said. “I think it needs to be addressed, but it is what it is. It’s live football, so that situation is in the game. We got to get ready for it. Obviously, Jordan and I getting hurt today, you don’t want to see that.” Read more »
