[UPDATE #3]: Goedert still didn’t get in through the second drive of the game, and the team finally confirmed it’s a calf injury for the tight end.

[UPDATE #2]: Goedert may have had his helmet on, but he didn’t get in the game during the Eagles (short) first offensive drive.

[UPDATE]: Phew. It looks like Goedert is ready to take the field with the Eagles offense.

Things got off to a questionable start for second-year tight end Dallas Goedert ahead of the Week 2 matchup against the Atlanta Falcons. Goedert was seen going back into the Eagles locker room during warmups.

He did end up coming out with the team dressed and with his helmet on, but reports suggest that all might not be well with the tight end. First, noting he wasn’t running with the rest of his teammates, and second that he was chatting with head coach Doug Pederson.

What does this mean? We don’t really know yet. And won’t know until at least the first offensive series.

Of note, the Eagles were going into this game with only two active tight ends, Goedert and Zach Ertz, and relying on Andre Dillard to act as a third TE should scheme require. The team released Alex Ellis off the roster before re-signing him to the practice squad earlier in the week.

Stay tuned for more updates.
