Philadelphia Eagles tight end Zach Ertz is ready to play after clearing the league’s concussion protocol.

“He’s good to go,” Eagles head coach Doug Pederson said of Ertz.

Ertz is scheduled to return to practice on Wendesday and will play as the 11-2 Eagles take on the New York Giants on Sunday at MetLife Stadium.

Ertz leads the Eagles with 57 receptions and is tied with wide receiver Nelson Agholor for 2nd place in receiving yards with 663 (Alshon Jeffery is 1st) and touchdowns with 7 (Jeffery has 8).

Ertz should be a safe play for fantasy owners this week and figures to be a large part of the offense moving forward, especially due to the injury of Carson Wentz.
