ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Philadelphia Eagles tight end Zach Ertz has returned to practice on a limited basis.

Ertz is still in the NFL's concussion protocol, but he joined his teammates for their workout at Angel Stadium on Thursday.

Ertz took a big hit in the Eagles' loss at Seattle last weekend. He hopes to play Sunday when Philadelphia (10-2) visits the Los Angeles Rams (9-3), and his return to practice suggests a reason to be hopeful.

Ertz was born in Orange County. He is the Eagles' leading receiver with 57 catches for 663 yards and seven touchdowns.

He didn't return to the Eagles' 24-10 loss in Seattle last Sunday after getting hit by Seahawks safety Bradley McDougald in the third quarter.
