It's been almost a week since the Arizona Cardinals' tight end Zack Ertz left practice early with a calf injury and not much has been said since.

However, ESPN NFL insider Jeremy Fowler offered a new update on Ertz's injured calf.

Taking to Twitter, Fowler explained that the injury is considered "minor" - but the team is cautious regardless.

Ertz joined the Cardinals in the middle of the 2021 season and was injured playing a large part in the team's offense.

In 11 games he made 56 receptions for 574 yards and three touchdowns, finishing the year with 74 receptions for 763 yards and five touchdowns.

Ertz wound up being Arizona's third leading receiver. suffice it to say,

They want him to be completely healthy this season.

If Zach Ertz is good to go this season, the Arizona Cardinals' offense could be more explosive than ever.

He was the No. 11 offense in 2021 thanks to Top 10 Passing Attacks and Top 10 Rushing Attacks.

Assuming DeAndre Hopkins, James Conner, Chase Edmonds and Hollywood Brown are healthy,

They may already be emerging as the top offense in the NFC West.

Zach Ertz would be a great security blanket for quarterback Kyler Murray.

Will Zach Ertz play the entire 2022 season, or will health issues hinder him again?
