Eagles’ Hurts doubtful to face Saints in Week 17

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts is doubtful to play Sunday against the New Orleans Saints due to a shoulder injury, the team announced Friday.

Gardner Minshew would be in line to make his 스포츠토토 second straight start if Hurts is unable to go.

Hurts participated in practice Thursday – his first session since the injury – in a limited capacity. Head coach Nick Sirianni noted earlier Friday that he was impressed with Hurts’ showing in practice but declined to officially name a starter for Sunday’s contest.

“Jalen had a good practice yesterday and went out and did some things very well,” head coach Nick Sirianni said. “Still going to sort through all those things. Haven’t decided anything yet.”

He added: “(Hurt’s) health is always taken into consideration first and if it’s safe for him to be out there.”

Hurts reportedly suffered an SC joint sprain in his throwing shoulder against the Chicago Bears in Week 15. He missed last week’s 40-34 loss to the Dallas Cowboys due to the injury.

The 24-year-old was off to an MVP-caliber season prior to getting injured. He set personal bests in completion percentage (67.3%), passing yards (3,472), and passing touchdowns (22).

The Eagles have used Hurts’ efforts to power themselves to a 13-2 record, the best in the NFC. The franchise can wrap up home-field advantage in the postseason by winning one of its final two games.
