Jordan Matthews has knee sprain; Zach Ertz cleared for head injury

Philadelphia Magazine - [Full Article]

Jordan Matthews suffered a left knee sprain, but Doug Pederson told SiriusXM that Matthews will just be sore for a few days.

Zach Ertz, who was also evaluated for a head injury, was cleared, but he was clearly unhappy with how some of his teammates have approached the hitting periods. Ertz was hit low by Blake Countess today and by Rodney McLeod two days ago.

“Guys gotta be pros,” Ertz told reporters after practice. “Rookies coming in, they don’t know what the atmosphere is like, the respect that’s given in practice.”

Fantasy Impact: 

Seems like both players will be fine, which is good news. The original report of the injury said both hits were low and borderline dirty.
