In a frustrating repeat of what they dealt with in 2019, the Philadelphia Eagles' offense has been decimated by injuries in 2020. This has been true at both the wide receiver and tight end position, with one of the most impactful absences being Dallas Goedert, who landed on the injured reserve with an ankle injury in Week 3.

On Wednesday, Eagles fans finally got some good news on Goedert.

The team has opened the 21-day practice window for Goedert to return. This doesn't mean he has been removed from the injured reserve quite yet, but it does mean that he's returning to practice, and the team will have 21 days to activate him.

When Goedert first went down there was hope that he'd only need the minimum time of three weeks on the IR, but that proved to be overly optimistic.

Goedert erupted for 101 yards and 1 touchdown on 8 receptions in Week 1, and Zach Ertz didn't come close to filling the void, catching 9 passes for just 48 yards in four games after Goedert landed on IR before getting injured himself. Journeyman Richard Rodgers is starting at TE for the time being, and Goedert's return can't come soon enough.

Despite their offensive struggles, the beleaguered Eagles still sit atop the NFC East, and FanDuel Sportsbook has them as solid -165 favorites to win the division.
