Goedert has Hairline Fracture in Thumb
Tight end Dallas Goedert has missed the Eagles' last three training camp sessions with an undisclosed upper body injury. It's been confirmed today by multiple reports that Goedert suffered a hairline fracture in one of his thumbs. The injury is believed to be minor at this point, according to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network. He could be back to practice as soon as next week with a splint.
Thankfully, the injury doesn't appear to be too serious at this point. Goedert, 25, had 58 receptions for 607 yards last season and could potentially see an even larger role in the offense this season.
Zach Ertz is also considered day to day with an upper body injury leaving Josh Perkins, Caleb Wilson, and Noah Togiai as the only healthy tight ends practicing.
