It’s the that time of the offseason when injuries just start stacking up.
Eagles tight end Richard Rodgers missed a lot of training camp due to a foot injury and his return on Monday didn’t last long; he was carted off the field during the team’s joint practice with the Ravens with a towel over his head.

Rodgers didn’t get a ton of playing time for the Eagles in 2018, but did see snaps in seven games during the season. It’s no secret the team’s No. 1 and 2 are Zach Ertz and Dallas Goedert, but tight end depth is definitely important for Philly with their focus on 12 personnel packages.
The Eagles have been making roster moves a-plenty the past week or so — in large part due to need with both Nate Sudfeld and Cody Kessler being sidelined, and then Paul Worrilow re-aggravating his knee injury — and they could look to bring in another tight end depending on Rodgers’ prognosis.
