The ankle injury Dallas Goedert suffered will require an IR stint. The Eagles placed the third-year tight end on IR Tuesday, sidelining him for at least three weeks.

Goedert suffered what looked like a high ankle sprain against the Bengals, leaving the tie game early. While the Eagles have Zach Ertz healthy, he is about the only one of the team’s first-string targets to enjoy that status presently. Goedert has 13 receptions for 138 yards and a touchdown through two-plus games.

Philadelphia has again seen its pass-catching corps riddled with injuries. Alshon Jeffery has yet to play this season, Jalen Reagor is expected to be out until November and DeSean Jackson has run into more hamstring trouble. This came after Marquise Goodwin‘s opt-out call.

To fill Goedert’s roster spot, the Eagles signed Hakeem Butler from the Panthers’ practice squad. Interestingly, the Eagles are listing the 2019 fourth-round pick as a tight end. The Cardinals drafted Butler as a wide receiver. He has yet to play in a regular-season game.
