The Detroit Lions are about to play in the biggest game for their franchise in the last three decades. On Sunday the Lions will play the San Francisco 49ers for a right to go to the Super Bowl. Obviously, this late in the season injuries will play a role for all four teams left standing.
Today, news surfaced that the Lions will be without one all-pro they were hoping to get something out of.
The Detroit Lions Rule Out All-Pro For San Francisco 49ers Matchup On Sunday
According to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler on Twitter/X:
“The #Lions are not activating Zach Ertz off the practice squad for Sunday’s NFC title game, per source. Ertz worked hard all week to get ready but team will hold him out.”
Just days before the NFC Championship Game, the Lions signed veteran tight end Zach Ertz to their practice squad.Ertz should have been able to play on Sunday.
Ertz has already demonstrated that he understands what the Lions are doing on offense, and his teammates are impressed by how well he understands:
“He’s picked it up extremely fast,” Goff said. “He really has. Really impressive, not that you didn’t expect that from a guy like him who’s been around for so long. I’ve known him here and there throughout the years, and just hearing about how smart he is and how well he can pick up things, he’s done it really well this week. It’s been good.”
After starting seven games for the Cardinals during the regular season, Ertz requested and received his release to sign with a contender. A move to the active roster could still be in the cards if the Lions are able to advance to the Super Bowl.
