Let’s get it back to the Eagles.

The injury (virology) news keeps coming as the Eagles announced tight end Zach Ertz has been placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list. It’s unknown if Ertz is vaccinated and exactly how much time he could potentially miss.

Ertz did play in Sunday’s matchup against the 49ers, totaling one catch for six yards.

The Eagles next play on Monday night against the Dallas Cowboys. Ertz could potentially be cleared to play in the primetime matchup and we’ll know more about his situation as the week progresses.

It does not matter if a player is vaccinated or not to be placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list, though a player’s absence from the team would be shorter if they’re vaccinated. Per the NFL’s COVID-19 protocol, vaccinated players require two negative tests at least 24 hours apart to return to the team. Unvaccinated players must isolate for a minimum of 10 days and test negative before a return to the team.

Hopefully blonde hair dye is found to up antibodies. Get better, Zach.
