The Philadelphia Eagles have placed TE Dallas Goedert on Injured Reserve with a fractured ankle, according to the team's official Twitter account.
Goedert will miss at least three weeks, and his timeline for return extends well past the three-week minimum. Goedert's spot on the roster was filled with the signing of Hakeem Butler, who will transition to tight end.
The Philadelphia Eagles have signed wide receiver Hakeem Butler and intend to use him at tight end, according to the team's official tweet.
Why not? Butler gets a chance to play with TE Dallas Goedert heading to IR. The Eagles have thrived on offense with two productive tight ends, but this is a hands-off situation for the foreseeable future. Butler has done next-to-nothing as a pro.
