Before news broke that the NFL player would be out for the season, ESPN's NFL Insider, Adam Schefter, tweeted that the tight end was "spotted in a brace" following Arizona's win over the Los Angeles Rams, and was only "expected to miss multiple weeks" following a knee injury he suffered on Nov. 13.

"The team does suspect that his ACL is intact, however. But Ertz will undergo an MRI on Monday to determine [the] full extent of [his] injury," a source told the sportscaster.

But apparently, Zach's injuries were more severe than the team initially thought.

In the 2022 season, Zach has 47 receptions, 406 receiving yards, and four touchdowns.

After nine seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles, the Pro Bowl tight end was traded to Arizona in 2021 for cornerback Tay Gowan and a 2022 fifth-round draft pick.

At this time, Zach has not commented on his knee injury, nor has he confirmed if he will be out for the entire season.
