On 94.1 WIP Tuesday morning, Philadelphia Eagles Head Coach Nick Sirianni confirmed Jalen Hurts’ injury but didn’t rule him out this weekend and noted the team doesn’t believe it’s a long-term issue.
“He sprained his shoulder…he is attacking his rehab,” Sirianni said. “We’ll see what happens this week…not something we deem long-term.”
Hurts didn’t miss a play in Sunday’s win over the Chicago Bears. He completed 22-of-37 passes for 315 yards with two INTs while rushing for three touchdowns.
Hurts has led the Eagles to a 13-1 record. Sirianni offered confidence that Gardner Minshew can step in and get the job done against the Dallas Cowboys and keep the Eagles moving along.
“He’s ready to roll when his number is called…if he has to go we have 100% confidence in him. He can ball,” Sirianni said of Minshew.
The Eagles can clinch the NFC East and the No. 1 seed in the NFC with a victory Saturday over the Cowboys.
