With the Philadelphia Eagles dealing with a banged-up wide receiver corps, you'd think a pass catching second-round tight end would be more involved. Through two weeks, you'd be wrong.
Heading into the Week 3 tilt versus the Indianapolis Colts, Philly coaches admitted they need to get Goedert more involved.
"We have a talented player in Dallas, and we need to find more ways to get him involved," offensive coordinator Mike Groh said earlier this week, via the team's official website. "We need to get him involved more. We had some extenuating circumstances the other day, for a variety of reasons. He just wasn't in there in the spots where we were getting the ball to. We're going to continue to try to monitor that and make sure that he is going to help us win games here."
The rookie said he'll be ready whenever his number called.
"Whether they put me in or not, I'm going to be ready," Goedert said. "I prepare all week to play. I want to be out there, but the coach has the team's best interests in mind."
