NFL training camps are officially in full swing, with veterans reporting across the league. Stay up to date with Yahoo Sports on the latest news, highlights, injuries, holdouts and everything else you need to know.
Zach Ertz is back and ready for action.
According to NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo, the Arizona Cardinals TE has been cleared for full football activity and is on track to start Week 1 just nine months after tearing his ACL and MCL. He has yet to practice at training camp, but will likely take the field in the coming week.
Ertz, 32, injured his knee in Week 10, and was a tough break. 2022 was supposed to be his first full season with his new team, after being traded from the Philadelphia Eagles to the Cardinals midway through the 2021 season. Through 10 games, he’d made 47 catches for 406 yards and four touchdowns.
Barring any setbacks, Ertz will reportedly be ready to start Week 1 when the Cardinals face the Washington Commanders. Getting a solid 10-year veteran back in the mix can only help the Cards, who are getting ready to embark on what could charitably be called a transitional season.
Yahoo Sports’ team of reporters, Charles Robinson, Jori Epstein and Charles McDonald will be spread across the country in the coming weeks to cover it all.
