With the Eagles off on both Monday and Tuesday this week, Sanchez got together with rookie receiver Jordan Matthews and tight end Zach Ertz for some on-the-field work. The three spent close to an hour on Monday working on routes and getting their timing down.
"Mark texted me saying he was getting in some extra work," Ertz said. "With the injury to Nick, we wanted to get a rapport down (with Sanchez). I didn't play too many snaps against Houston, so I wanted to come back and get back into the rhythm.
For Ertz, getting his timing down with Sanchez is something that will need to be worked on, as the tight end has much more experience catching the ball from the injured Nick Foles.
While Matthews' snaps have been pretty consistent lately, Ertz is having trouble getting on the field and it's showing up in the box score. He played a season-low 29% of the snaps in Week 9 and it led to just two targets and just one catch for four yards.
