EAGLES BACK-UP MINSHEW READY TO REPLACE HURTS, JUST IN CASE!

By Max Harper

Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts has a dinged ankle, so Gardner Minshew is getting ready just in case.

“[Minshew is] in here today so we’ll talk to him today,” offensive coordinator Shane Steichen said on Tuesday. “But really we’re getting ready for Jalen (to play) and we’ll go from there.”

Eagles head coach Nick Sirianni on Monday said he didn’t want to put a timetable on Hurts’ injury but said they’d see how rehab went the next two days before hopefully having a better update on Wednesday, the first day of practice this week. So the Eagles are going through that process now.

With the bye week looming after the Jets game, there’s a case to be made for sitting a hobbled Hurts on Sunday.

Even if Hurts is able to play, Steichen conceded that an ankle injury could limit Hurts’ effectiveness on Sunday.

“Yeah. He’s an explosive runner,” Steichen said. “Obviously, he runs the football really well so we’ve got to work through those things.”
