In a potential game-changing development for the Philadelphia Eagles, tight end Dallas Goedert is gearing up for a comeback just in time for the highly anticipated showdown against the Dallas Cowboys at AT&T Stadium this Sunday night.

Goedert, who has been sidelined since Week 9 with a broken forearm sustained during the Eagles’ previous meeting with the Cowboys, spoke to a Philadelphia radio station, expressing optimism about his recovery. Exactly one month after the injury, Goedert revealed that he is mostly recovered and eager to contribute to the monumental clash that holds significant implications for the NFC playoff picture.

The sixth-year veteran returned to practice late last week but was ultimately declared inactive for the Eagles’ Week 13 faceoff against the San Francisco 49ers. Unfortunately, the Eagles suffered a decisive loss in that game, dropping their record to 10-2 on the season. With the 9-3 Cowboys now vying for a tie with the Eagles atop the NFC East, Goedert’s potential return comes at a crucial juncture.

Goedert, who had accumulated three catches for 50 yards on four targets before the injury, remains a vital part of the Eagles’ passing attack. In his absence, backups Jack Stoll and Albert Okwuegbunam struggled to fill the void, combining for two receptions on five targets for a mere 17 yards in the last three games. Despite not playing since Week 9, Goedert still ranks as the Eagles’ third-leading receiver in targets, catches, yards, and touchdowns.

During the eight full games that Goedert played before his injury, Philadelphia averaged an impressive 286.5 passing yards per contest. In the three full games without him, that average plummeted to 201.3, underscoring his impact on the team’s offensive dynamics.

“I’m able to do everything I need to do in my position group,” Goedert affirmed. “So, I’m planning on going down to Dallas and playing every snap that they allow me to.”

The Cowboys’ defense poses a formidable challenge, allowing an average of 181.1 passing yards per game, ranking fifth-best in the league. However, their vulnerability to tight ends is notable, having allowed six of the 27 total touchdowns scored against them in 2023 by opposing tight ends. With this in mind, Goedert’s return could prove pivotal as the Eagles look to maintain their standing atop the NFC East. As the countdown to Sunday night’s clash continues, all eyes will be on Goedert’s potential impact in this crucial matchup.
