The Philadelphia Eagles tight end Dallas Goedert is expected to return to action during the regular season, league sources confirmed on Saturday night. The player was placed on injured reserve this past Wednesday due to suffering a shoulder injury.

As a result of being placed on injured reserve, protocol dictates that Goedert will miss a minimum of four games.

“Only question is whether it’s with two, three, or four games left (in the regular season). But he will be back this season, definitely,” one anonymous source confirmed. Prior to his injury, Goedert ranked second in the team for receiving yards (544) as well as second in receiving touchdowns with three.

Philadelphia also believes that rookie defensive tackle Jordan Davis could return once his time on injured reserve ends on December 4. As a result of the team’s recent defensive issues, the Eagles recently completed trades for veteran defensive tackles Ndamukong Suh and Linval Joseph.

Over the past two weeks, the Eagles have yielded 320 yards and two touchdowns on the ground; a trend that they will be hoping to turn around with their new arrivals.
