Philadelphia tight end Dallas Goedert broke his forearm in Sunday night’s 28-23 home win over Dallas as a three-point home favorite.
Goedert is expected to miss at least four weeks. The good news is that the Eagles are off this week, so he might miss only three games. Their next three games are at Kansas City, vs. Buffalo and vs. San Francisco.
Then on Dec. 10, Philadelphia (8-1 straight up, 5-2-2 against the spread) will play at Dallas in a rematch, and the hope is that Goedert might be able to return for that one.
In nine games this year, Goedert has 38 catches for 410 yards and two touchdowns. The 28-year-old has been a model of consistency since the Eagles took him with the No. 49 overall selection in the second round of the 2018 NFL Draft.
As a rookie, Godert had 33 receptions for 334 yards and four TDs. Since then, he’s had at least 55 catches in three of four seasons, with his lowest output coming in 2020 when he played in only 11 games and had 46 receptions for 524 yards and three TDs.
Goedert caught 55 balls for 702 yards and three TDs in 12 regular-season games last year. He had three catches for 50 yards before getting injured vs. Dallas.
You can see the replay of the injury here. Dallas safety Marquese Bell appears to twist Goedert’s arm on the way down and then he falls directly on the forearm.
With Goedert out, backup TE Jack Stoll will get more playing time. In 2022, Stoll had 11 catches for 123 yards. He has just two receptions for 10 yards this year.
