The Philadelphia Eagles didn't just suffer their first loss of the 2022 season on Monday night, they lost tight end Dallas Goedert to a shoulder injury. 

Unfortunately for the Eagles, they'll be without Goedert for an extended period of time. On Wednesday afternoon, the team officially placed him on injured reserve. 

Goedert will have to miss at least the next four weeks. That's a crushing blow to Philadelphia's passing game. 

To make matters worse, Goedert hurt his shoulder on a play that involved a blatant face mask penalty that wasn't called by the officials. 

Goedert was having a really strong season in Philly, hauling in 43 passes for 544 yards and three touchdowns.  

Rookie tight end Grant Calcaterra should receive more snaps during Goedert's absence. Additionally, the team could utilize Tyree Jackson. He was activated from the PUP list this afternoon.  

The Eagles are hopeful that Goedert will return for a playoff run in January.
