Jalen Hurts has been selected by the Philadelphia Eagles for their 2019 NFL Draft. He will join Carson Wentz, who made his first start as an Eagle in 2017, and Nick Foles on a team that is set to make another run at the Super Bowl this coming year.
The “jalen hurts” is a nickname given to the quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles. He was drafted in the second round of this year’s NFL draft and is currently competing with Carson Wentz.
Getty Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts will make his 17th NFL start against the New York Jets in Week 13.
When it comes to oneself, particularly wounded bodily parts, Jalen Hurts may be a man of few words. The Philadelphia Eagles’ starting quarterback has been nursing a sore ankle and is doubtful for Week 13 against the New York Jets.
Hurts head coach Nick Sirianni said the team is “hopeful” for Sunday’s game. Shane Steichen, the offensive coordinator, shared similar optimism while conceding that Gardner Minshew was still being added to the gameplan. Prior to Wednesday’s walk-through, Hurts spoke up on the topic, seemingly dispelling any doubt. He has every intention of dressing up and making up for last week’s disaster.
“It’s OK,” Hurts said when questioned about his ankle.
Great. Will your injuries limit your movement, Jalen? “It isn’t going to happen.”
Another question: are you certain you’ll be playing? “I’ll be prepared to go.”
So that’s the end of it. We’ll see you in The Meadowlands’ MetLife Stadium.
Hurts seems eager to return to the field after having his worst game of his NFL career in Week 12. He completed 14 of 31 passes for 129 yards and 77 yards running. The turnovers were much more concerning: three interceptions, all on really awful readings.
“You never go bankrupt taking a profit,” an old coach once told me, “and I know there were a lot of chances in last week’s game and even in some games before that where you just take what they offer you,” Hurts told reporters. “Well, that’s something I’ve scribbled down.” I’ve taken advantage of the excellent teaching provided by the instructors, and I’m looking forward to this week.”

Hurts Makes a Clue to Previous Unreported Injuries
Major injuries must be disclosed in order for players to be protected in the event that an untreated illness prevents them from playing later. It also helps the club since it protects the player’s long-term investment. Minor injuries, on the other hand, are frequently overlooked, as Hurts mentioned during his tenure in Philadelphia.
Hurts said, “You guys know I’m struggling with something.” “It’s the first one you’ve heard about, so keep dealing with it and moving ahead as you prepare for this week’s game.”
“I believe he’s itching to go back out there and redeem himself after a performance that fell short of his expectations.” Jalen Hurts’ mentality this week, according to Nick Sirianni. #FlyEaglesFly #Eagles #FlyEaglesFly

Interesting. When asked whether he had ever gone out and had a career day while playing with a serious injury, Hurts had a humorous reaction. Hurts’ bad ankle, it was feared, would significantly impair his ability to run.
“All you have to do is listen. “Tune in,” Hurts replied, a smirk on his face.
On the ‘Estimated’ Report, four players are listed.
On Wednesday, the Eagles skipped a regular practice in favor of a walk-through. During the late-season grind, Sirianni’s regular operating practice has been to do just that.
Defensive end Fletcher Cox (rest/back), running back Jordan Howard (knee), running back Boston Scott (sickness), and wide receiver DeVonta Smith were all mentioned on the team’s “estimated” practice report (illness). Limited contestants were assigned to eight other players.
The fact that Kelce was categorized as restricted rather than out was a plus. The All-Pro center acknowledged that his damaged knee was swollen, but Philly’s adopted tough man doesn’t expect to miss any time. Kelce is a true warrior in all senses of the term.
“It’s rather excellent.” “I believe there’s definitely swelling in there,” Kelce added. “But we’ll keep trying to get it out,” he says, “but there’s no serious harm there and everything should be OK.”
