Eagles Injury Update: Zach Ertz Cleared to Practice

Updated: 8:30 p.m.

ANAHEIM, Calif. - The Eagles look like they will have Zach Ertz when they play the Rams at the LA Coliseum on Sunday. 

Ertz was cleared to practice Thursday at Angel Stadium in Anaheim after missing Wednesday's session. However, he was limited because he hasn't completely cleared the NFL's concussion protocol. Still, his status is trending in the positive direction.

Ertz suffered his concussion late in the third quarter in Seattle when he was hit by Bradley McDougald. Ertz's only two catches of the game came on the previous possession in the third.

This season, Ertz has 57 catches for 663 yards and seven touchdowns. He's their second-leading receiver after Alshon Jeffery (680 yards). 

Also back at practice on Thursday was backup defensive tackle Destiny Vaeao, who missed Wednesday with a shoulder injury. 

Joe Walker (neck) was back at practice for the second straight day after being a full participant on Wednesday. Walker missed the Seahawks game after suffering a stinger in the first half against the Bears in the previous game.
