Says he'll play
Hurts (ankle) said Wednesday that he will play in Sunday's game against the Jets, Zach Berman of The Athletic reports.
Hurts sounded more confident than coach Nick Sirianni, who stopped short of promises but did say earlier Wednesday that he expected his starting quarterback to play. Of course, players often are too optimistic when it comes to injuries, but in this case Hurts seems ready to back it up on the practice field, starting with his participation in Wednesday's walk-through session. Josh Tolentino of The Philadelphia Inquirer notes that Hurts didn't appear to have a limp while walking to practice, while the QB said he's already played through multiple injuries this year and isn't worried about his left ankle issue.
