Top receiver against Bucs

Goedert recorded six catches on 12 targets for 92 yards in Sunday's 31-15 wild-card round loss to the Buccaneers.

Analysis: Goedert was one of the few Eagles who produced consistently throughout the game, and he led the team in most receiving stats. He found holes in the Tampa Bay secondary for several big plays, including catches that went for 28, 17 and 16 yards. The only thing missing from his performance was a trip to the end zone, with Kenneth Gainwell and Boston Scott instead tallying the team's touchdowns. Heading into 2022, Goedert figures to pair with DeVonta Smith as key members of Philadelphia's passing attack after he produced a career-high 830 receiving yards across 15 games during the 2021 campaign.

Back from COVID list

The Eagles reinstated Goedert (illness) from the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday.

Analysis: Philadelphia restored all of its players on the virus list to the active roster ahead of Sunday's wild-card game in Tampa Bay, including three key skill-position players in Goedert and running backs Boston Scott and Jordan Howard. Along with Goedert, the Eagles also activated fellow tight end Jack Stoll, giving the team its top two options at the position in advance of the postseason. While Goedert and Stoll were sidelined in Week 18, Tyree Jackson stepped in as the primary tight end in the Eagles' loss to Dallas, recording three receptions for 22 yards and a touchdown before exiting the contest with what was later revealed as a torn ACL. Goedert, meanwhile, was in isolation during the game and finished the regular season with 56 catches for 830 yards and four touchdowns across 15 appearances.

Still on COVID-19 list

Goedert (illness) remains on the reserve/COVID-19 list ahead of Saturday's game against the Cowboys, Zach Berman of The Athletic reports

Analysis: As does Jack Stoll, which sets the stage for Tyree Jackson, Richard Rodgers and Noah Togiai to handle the Eagles' tight end duties Week 18. Goedert thus will look clear the NFL's COVID-19 protocols in advance of the team's postseason opener next weekend.

Jan 8, 2022 1:26 PM EST

Officially on COVID list

Goedert has been placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list.

Analysis: As was Jack Stoll, and as a result until one of both players is able to clear the NFL's COVID protocols, Tyree Jackson profiles as the Eagles' top available tight end option ahead of Saturday night's game against the Cowboys.

Jan 3, 2022 2:26 PM EST

Added to virus list

The Eagles placed Goedert (illness) on the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday.

Analysis: Goedert's placement on the list was expected after Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reported earlier Monday that the tight end was one of a dozen Eagles players who were positive for the virus during the team's latest round of testing. In addition to Goedert, his top backup, Jack Stoll, also tested positive, temporarily leaving Tyree Jackson as the only tight end on the Eagles' active roster. Goedert will still have a chance to exit the NFL's COVID-19 protocol prior to Saturday's game against the Cowboys so long as he shows diminished symptoms of the virus in the days to come.

Jan 3, 2022 2:24 PM EST

Tests positive for virus

Goedert is one of roughly 12 Eagles players who tested positive for COVID-19 on Monday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Assuming the Eagles are able to verify his positive test result, Goedert is expected to go on the reserve/COVID-19 list before the team resumes practicing Tuesday ahead of Saturday's regular-season finale against the Cowboys. Due to the NFL's updated COVID-19 return-to-play protocols that allowing players who test positive to rejoin their teams in shorter periods of time, Goedert could still have a chance to suit up Saturday. The tight end has taken on a heightened role in the Philadelphia passing attack over the team's past four games, generating a 21-339-2 receiving line on 26 targets.

Gets back involved

Goedert recorded six receptions on seven targets for 71 yards in Sunday's 20-16 win over Washington.

Analysis: Goedert has fluctuated between being Jalen Hurts' favorite target and hardly being a part of the offense in recent weeks. He served in the former role Sunday and led the team in targets, yards and receptions. His performance was highlighted by four gains of more than 10 yards, with the only thing missing being a trip to the end zone. If Goedert is able to tally three catches in Week 18 against Dallas, he'll set a new career-high for catches in a campaign.

Jan 2, 2022 6:36 PM EST

Limited to two grabs

Goedert secured two of four targets for 28 yards in the Eagles' 34-10 win over the Giants on Sunday.

Analysis: Goedert's final line would have looked a lot better had he not had a 21-yard touchdown grab early in the third quarter nullified by a holding penalty on Quez Watkins. The fourth-year tight end was coming off back-to-back 100-yard efforts, so to label his downturn Sunday as particularly disappointing, not to mention ill-timed, would be an understatement. Goedert will still have a chance to come through for fantasy managers in league championship games in a Week 17 road battle against Washington.

Dec 26, 2021 3:48 PM EST

Explodes for 100-yard night

Goedert brought in seven of nine targets for 135 yards in the Eagles' 27-17 win over Washington on Tuesday night.

Analysis: Goedert's reception, receiving yardage and target tallies were all team and season highs, as was his spectacular 45-yard catch early in the second quarter between two defenders. The tight end's rapport with spot starter Gardner Minshew in a Week 14 win over the Jets had certainly stood out, but his chemistry with Jalen Hurts was Tuesday was even more encouraging considering that it hadn't always been evident this season. Goedert heads into a very favorable Week 16 home date against the Giants with plenty of momentum afforded by his back-to-back 100-yard efforts.

Dec 21, 2021 7:27 PM EST

Eagles-Washington moved to Tuesday

Goedert and the Eagles will no longer play Washington on Sunday, after the NFL officially rescheduled the matchup between the two teams for Tuesday at 7 p.m. ET.

Analysis: Due to ongoing COVID-19-related issues within Washington's organization, the NFL is hopeful that by delaying the game two days, the Football Team will restore enough players from the reserve/COVID-19 list to alleviate depth concerns on the roster.

Dec 17, 2021 4:41 PM EST

Delivers against Jets

Goedert recorded six catches on six targets for 105 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 33-18 win over the Jets.

Analysis: Goedert came alive with Gardner Minshew under center, matching his highest catch total of the season. He particularly delivered early in the game by accounting for Philadelphia's first two touchdowns of the game with receptions of 36 and 25 yards. Given that the Eagles were up by two scores for much of the second half, Minshew took to the air only 10 times in the final two quarters. That limited Goedert's potential to further deliver, though he still managed top 100 yards for the first time this season. The Eagles now head into a Week 14 bye, so Jalen Hurts (ankle) has the potential to be back under center by the next time Goedert takes the field.

Dec 5, 2021 2:21 PM EST

Does nothing with three targets

Goedert caught one of his three targets for no yards in Sunday's 13-7 loss to the Giants.

Analysis: It seems the Giants' game plan in defending the passing game was centered around shutting down the Eagles' top two pass-catchers in Goedert and DeVonta Smith while forcing someone else to make plays. The strategy worked to perfection, shutting the tight end down completely and limiting Smith to just 22 yards on two catches. The 26-year-old should be a good bet to bounce back against the Jets in Week 13.

Nov 30, 2021 12:50 AM EST

Team-high yardage total in win

Goedert brought in five of eight targets for 62 yards in the Eagles' 40-29 win over the Saints on Sunday.

Analysis: Goedert cleared concussion protocol earlier in the week and then proceeded to turn in another rock-solid performance, one that saw him pace Philadelphia in both receptions and receiving yards. The fourth-year pro hasn't scored since Week 4, but he does have multiple receptions in every contest and is arguably Jalen Hurts' most trusted short/intermediate target. Goedert's next opportunity to get back into the end zone will come in a Week 12 road battle against the division-rival Giants.

Nov 21, 2021 2:41 PM EST

Clears concussion protocol

Goedert has been removed from concussion protocol and doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Saints, Mike Kaye of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Analysis: It was a good Friday for Goedert, who agreed to a four-year contract extension in the morning and was cleared to play in the afternoon. He'll soon become one of the highest-paid tight ends in the league, with Philadelphia presumably banking on his receiving production to improve now that he's not losing snaps and targets to Zach Ertz. The 26-year-old Goedert has been freed for an every-down role since Ertz was traded to Arizona, but at the same time the Eagles have become far more focused on their rushing attack, with Jalen Hurts attempting only 54 passes over the past three games. Goedert does account for 15 of those, 27.7 percent, despite missing the final three quarters of last week's game after a hard hit from Broncos safety Justin Simmons left him in concussion protocol. Goedert likely will be back in his every-down role Sunday against the Saints, contract in hand and hoping to help the Eagles top a fellow NFC wild-card hopeful.

Signs four-year extension

Goedert (concussion) is signing a four-year contract extension with the Eagles, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

Analysis: Halfway through the final season of his rookie contract, Goedert now is signed with the Eagles through 2025, locked in alongside WR DeVonta Smith as a pass catcher for HC Nick Sirianni and OC Shane Steichen. The 26-year-old tight end has worked in an every-down role since the Eagles traded Zach Ertz to Arizona, though the increase in playing time has coincided with Sirianni's shift toward a run-first offense. Goedert is recovering from a concussion after an early exit from the Week 10 win at Denver, with a return to practice Thursday (as a limited participant) suggesting he has a shot to suit up this Sunday against the Saints.

Nov 19, 2021 9:09 AM EST

Practices in limited fashion

Goedert (concussion) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice.

Analysis: The limited showing amounts to progress for Goedert, who entered the NFL's concussion protocol after taking a helmet-to-helmet hit in Sunday's win over the Broncos, then missed practice Wednesday. While the extent of Goedert's practice activity Thursday isn't fully known, Josh Tolentino of The Philadelphia Inquirer notes that the tight end was donning a helmet and did some route running and pass catching in the portion of the workout that was open to the media. Goedert won't necessarily need to practice fully Friday in order to play this weekend against New Orleans, but at the very least, he'll need to receive clearance from an independent neurologist.

Nov 18, 2021 1:58 PM EST

Back at practice Thursday

Goedert (concussion) returned to practice Thursday, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Analysis: Goedert was removed from the first half of the Eagles' Week 10 win at Denver to be evaluated for a concussion, which eventually was confirmed. He was unable to practice Wednesday, but his activity Thursday included positional drills, at the very least. Philadelphia's second injury report of the week will reveal approximately where Goedert stands in the protocol for head injuries.

Nov 18, 2021 10:22 AM EST

Listed as DNP with concussion

Goedert (concussion) is listed as a non-participant on Wednesday's practice report, Tim McManus of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Goedert left Sunday's win over the Broncos after taking a big hit, with coach Nick Sirianni later confirming that his starting tight end had been placed in concussion protocol. The Eagles used Jack Stoll and Tyree Jackson in a timeshare after losing Goedert, who could also be out for Sunday's game against the Saints if he can't gain clearance by Saturday.

Nov 17, 2021 12:49 PM EST

Concussion confirmed

Eagles head coach Nick Sirianni confirmed Goedert (head) was placed in the NFL's concussion protocol after Sunday's 30-13 win over the Broncos, Martin Frank of The Delaware News Journal reports.

Analysis: Goedert sustained the concussion on a helmet-to-helmet hit from Denver safety Justin Simmons and was ruled out for the remainder of the contest. He finished the contest with two receptions for 28 yards on two targets. Goedert will now have to navigate the NFL's five-step protocol for head injuries in the coming days as he looks to gain clearance for the Eagles' Week 11 matchup with the Saints.

Nov 15, 2021 1:51 PM EST

Not returning Sunday

Goedert (head) won't return to Sunday's game in Denver.

Analysis: Goedert was evaluated for a head injury following a hit to the helmet from Broncos safety Justin Simmons in the first quarter. The Eagles have yet to confirm that Goedert suffered a concussion, but he'll finish this contest with two catches (on two targets) for 28 yards. Philadelphia will have just Jack Stoll and Tyree Jackson at tight end for the rest of Week 10.
