Philadelphia Eagles tight end Dallas Goedert suffered a severe left shoulder injury on a missed facemask penalty in Monday’s loss to the Washington Commanders.

By video, Goedert appeared to suffer a posterior shoulder subluxation with a possible avulsion fracture when he was landed on by two defenders with his arm at an awkward angle.

Dallas Goedert Injury Update

The star tight end attempted to brace his fall with his left arm, but the combined weight likely forced his shoulder to dislocate out of the back of the joint (posterior).

Philadelphia placed Goedert on the IR on Wednesday, knocking him out for at least four weeks.

If Goedert does have an avulsion fracture, which is when the ligament pulls off a small piece of the bone, he will likely miss the remainder of the season.

If he avoids a fracture, however, he could return by the end of December. That could leave him healthy for Week 18 and a playoff run, but that would be the best-case scenario.

Grant Calcaterra and Jack Stoll are the two remaining tight ends on the roster, while second-year tight end Tyree Jackson has been designated to return from the PUP list.

Stoll has only 4 catches so far this season, while Calcaterra has just one. Jackson suffered a torn ACL in early January and will likely have limited mobility when he returns.

Philadelphia Eagles Super Bowl Odds

The Eagles still have the third-best Super Bowl odds at +600, according to FanDuel Sportsbook. Philadelphia is also favored by 6.5 points this week against the Colts in Indianapolis.
