Eagles are ‘pushing hard’ for a touchdown

Jalen Hurts and the Eagles “push” their way into the end zone to tie the Cowboys at 14.

PHILADELPHIA — Eagles tight end Dallas Goedert has a fracture in his right forearm and will undergo an MRI on Monday to determine if there is any other damage, sources told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Either way, Goedert is set to miss time and is an injured reserve candidate.

Goedert was injured in the third quarter of Sunday’s 28-23 win over the Dallas Cowboys, when he took a short pass from quarterback Jalen Hurts and raced down the left sideline for a 28-yard gain. Safety Markquese Bell grabbed Goedert by the right arm to make the tackle and his weight appeared to land on that arm as they fell to the ground.

Goedert went out and didn’t return, finishing with three catches for 50 yards. Jack Stoll received the bulk of the reps in Goedert’s absence, while Albert Okwuegbunam, acquired from the Denver Broncos via trade in August, made his debut with the Eagles and played six snaps.

Grant Calcaterra was also sidelined Sunday after suffering a concussion in Week 9 against the Washington Chiefs.

Goedert, a second-round pick in the 2018 draft, has 35 catches for 360 yards and two scores on the year. He missed five games last season due to a fracture in his left shoulder.
