Jalen Hurts dealing with an ankle injury following Week 12 loss

Posted on November 29, 2021

Sunday’s loss against the New York Giants hurt Jalen Hurts’ ego and his ankle. The game ended 13-7 with three interceptions and several missed opportunities by the offense.

Now quarterback Jalen Hurts is dealing with an injury that may cause him to miss round two at MetLife Stadium. On Monday, head coach Nick Sirianni told reporters that he is hopeful Hurts will play, but the team would have a better idea after Hurts receives treatment this week. For now, Hurts is day to day.

Hurts ran eight times for 77 yards against the Giants. However, he failed to complete his passes, making 14 of 31 for 129 yards. In the five previous weeks (before the Giants game), Hurts was ranked No. 1 in the league with a 75.0 quarterback rating. This week, only a 17.3.

If Hurts is unable to play Sunday against the New York Jets, Gardner Minshew would be next on the depth chart.

Minshew played against the Detroit Lions after the Eagles had scored 44 points. He completed two for two passes for 11 yards.

Following Philadelphia’s game against the Jets, they have a bye week before returning to the Linc to face the Washington Football Team.
