Arizona Cardinals tight end Zach Ertz is "trending in the right direction" for Sunday's season opener against the Kansas City Chiefs, per ESPN NFL insider Jeremy Fowler.
Ertz currently has a questionable designation with a calf injury. It's unclear if he'll be limited if he takes the field this weekend.
Ertz, 31, did not suit up for any preseason game action as he dealt with a calf strain. He was inactive for practice on Monday and Tuesday, but returned to the field for a workout on Wednesday.
Ertz joined the Cardinals organization in a midseason trade with the Philadelphia Eagles in 2021. Through 11 games, he reeled in 56 catches for 574 yards and three touchdowns.
There's no question the Cardinals have a better chance to upset the Chiefs with Ertz on the field.
Sunday's game will kickoff at 4:15 p.m. ET in Arizona.
