Eagles’ Dallas Goedert full participant in practice

Dallas Goedert, Eagles

The Philadelphia Eagles are getting one of their offensive weapons back in time for Week 1. On Thursday, tight end Dallas Goedert was a full participant in practice.

Goedert sustained a calf injury nearly a month ago in practice and has been limited in practice since. The good news is, the second-year tight end was able to avoid the Eagles’ injury report for their Week 1 clash against the Washington Redskins.

The Eagles selected Goedert with the 49th overall pick in last year’s draft out of South Dakota State. In his rookie season, the pass-catcher had 33 receptions for 334 yards and four touchdowns.

Entering his second season in the NFL, Goedert is expected to become more involved in Philadelphia’s passing offense. Even with Zach Ertz as the starter, Doug Pederson wants to utilize his other tight end more this year.

Along with Goedert, Fletcher Cox, Nigel Bradham, DeSean Jackson, and Ronald Darby were all full participants in practice. Cox and Bradham have been nursing foot injuries in recent weeks and are on track to suit up on Sunday.

As for Jackson, the veteran receiver sustained a finger injury recently but seemed to be a full-go on Thursday. Finally, Darby has been recovering from a torn ACL this offseason. The cornerback was able to work in seven-on-seven drills nearly a month ago. Since then, he has upped his work on the practice field.

Now, Darby was able to practice with the team Thursday with no limitations and he avoided the injury report as well. Just a few days before they take the field on Sunday, the Eagles are getting a few of their key contributors back in uniform.
