Questionable for Sunday
Head coach Nick Sirianni said Hurts (ankle) will be listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Jets, after splitting first-team practice reps evenly with Gardner Minshew this week, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Sirianni sounded more confident earlier in the week, while Hurts himself said Wednesday that he would be fine for Sunday's game. The 23-year-old quarterback now appears closer to truly questionable, though it's a situation where gamesmanship could be a factor, as the Eagles' running game in particular would look different with backup Gardner Minshew replacing Hurts, who enters Sunday ranked 10th in the league for rushing yards (695) and tied for fifth in rushing touchdowns (eight). Whatever the case, fantasy managers will need to treat Hurts as truly questionable, with the benefit of an early kickoff (1 p.m. ET on Sunday) if he ends up a game-time decision.
