Injury: Shoulder

Injury Status: 

UPDATE (Feb. 11):

Although quarterback Jalen Hurts has not been officially listed as injured, he is likely to be hobbled in some way by the shoulder injury he has been playing through since last week.

UPDATE (JAN. 8): Hurts (shoulder) is expected to start Sunday’s game against the Giants, according to Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer.

UPDATE (JAN. 05): Hurts’ (shoulder) participation in Wednesday’s walk-through practice was limited.

UPDATE (JAN. 01): Hurts (right shoulder) is not expected to play against the Saints on Sunday, but he will be available for the Eagles’ Week 18 game against the Giants, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

UPDATE (DEC. 31): Hurts (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Saints, according to Eliot Shorr-Parks of Sports Radio 94 WIP Philadelphia.

UPDATE (DEC. 28): Questionable

UPDATE (DEC. 27): Despite concerns about his shoulder injury, Hurts plans to try to play against the Saints on Week 17.

Hurts’ condition is considered day-to-day, but his drive to compete and desire to play might convince Philadelphia Eagles to give him the go-ahead.

Hurts (shoulder), who is expected to miss Saturday’s game against the Cowboys, is questionable for the Eagles’ Week 17 game against the Saints, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.

The Eagles will wait to see how the NFC playoff picture shakes out this weekend, as well as how Hurts’ shoulder responds to rest and treatment, before deciding on his Week 17 status.

The MVP candidate is nursing a sprained joint in his throwing shoulder.

More information on his status will be available after the weekend’s games, but Gardner Minshew would be in line for another start at quarterback if Hurts is forced to miss another week.
