Jalen Hurts, QB (PHI)

Maintains limited practice activity

Hurts (ankle) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice.

After he was estimated as a limited participant for Wednesday's walk-through session, Hurts maintained the same level of activity while the Eagles held a more traditional practice session Thursday. While both Hurts himself as well as head coach Nick Sirianni have expressed varying degrees of optimism that the quarterback will be ready to go for Sunday's game against the Jets, what Hurts is able to do at Friday's practice will likely be the deciding factor in whether he carries an injury designation into the contest. Even if Hurts ultimately gets the green light to suit up and start, fantasy managers may not have a clear idea to what extent his sprained left ankle affects him from a rushing/mobility standpoint. Given that much of Hurts' fantasy value is reliant on his production on the ground -- he's averaging 57.9 rushing yards and 0.66 rushing touchdowns per game -- he may not be as dependable of a lineup option as he typically is, even in a favorable matchup with a porous Jets run defense.
