Lions Add TE Zach Ertz
5 months ago

The Detroit Lions have added former Cardinals TE Zach Ertz to practice squad.

The Detroit Lions held off the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday to advance to the NFC Championship game, but second string TE Brock Wright was injured in the contest.  With Wright injured, they are adding former Cardinals TE Zach Ertz to their practice squad in hope to elevate him to help the active roster for the Lions’ playoff run.

 

Zach Ertz was released by the Cardinals earlier this season.  He hasn’t played since week 7, so this move is to help put depth behind Sam LaPorta, who has been playing with an injured knee.
