Ertz is undergoing further tests to determine the severity of the fracture. The Eagles are in wait-and-see mode to establish whether it's an injury the tight end could play through, or whether he'll miss action.
Wentz's on-field BFF suffered the injury after taking a massive shot in the first quarter of Sunday's 17-9 win over the Cowboys. After a lengthy stay in the locker room, Ertz returned but was clearly battling pain. He finished with four catches on six targets for 28 yards.
"He took the shot there in the first half. There is a rib that has been affected," coach Doug Pederson said Monday. "I am waiting, from our doctors, a couple more tests. We'll all see later today. Should have something more tomorrow or Thursday."
Given his importance to the offense, Ertz's status will be a major one to track as we move through the week.
