It’s a crucial blow for the Cardinals as they lose one of the league’s most productive tight ends. It’ll hinder the passing game for the remainder of the season as Arizona looks to make a playoff push in the second half. At 32 years old, it raises concern over Ertz’s career moving forward if it’s a significant knee injury.
In 2022, Ertz has 47 receptions on 69 targets for 406 yards and four touchdowns. Unless someone is brought in through free agency, the starting tight end job is Trey McBride’s to lose.
