The Eagles finally got some good news this week.
Tight end Zach Ertz has cleared the NFL's concussion protocol and will be able to practice as the Eagles begin preparations for the Giants.
"He's good to go," head coach Doug Pederson said.

Ertz missed the Rams game with the concussion, although it appeared he was close to being cleared then.
Despite missing two games this season, Ertz still has 57 catches for 663 yards and seven touchdowns. Only Travis Kelce, Rob Gronkowski and Delanie Walker have more receiving yards among tight ends. Only Jimmy Graham (9) has more touchdown catches.
Left guard Stefen Wisniewski is "doing good," according to Pederson. Wisniewski left Sunday's game with an ankle injury but will practice on Wednesday. He will be monitored, but Pederson said Wiz should be able to play this weekend.
Wednesday is a big day for Sidney Jones. The Eagles' second-round pick, who has been recovering from a torn Achilles that dropped him out of the first round, will practice for the first time.
Pederson said the plan is to bring along Jones slowly, much like the Eagles did with Ronald Darby a few weeks ago. Defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz said this will almost be like the first week of OTAs for the rookie.
"All due respect to our trainers, they are not a challenge to cover, and he's only been working with those guys," Schwartz said.
Pederson said the Eagles will use Jones on their scout team and get him some special teams work.
What does Pederson want to see?
"We've watched [Jones] through his progression and his training these last few weeks," he said. "And now just want to see him in football conditions, the true transition of stopping and starting. Making a play on the ball and seeing his instincts and things like that, things we haven't been able to monitor this season."
