Philadelphia Eagles QB Jalen Hurts (ankle) on track to start Tuesday against Washington

PHILADELPHIA — Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts is on observe to start out versus the Washington Football Staff on Tuesday evening.

Hurts, who skipped Philadelphia’s 7 days thirteen gain in excess of the New York Jets with a sprained left ankle, at first was going to be shown as questionable on the team’s injury report, coach Nick Sirianni reported. But with the recreation moved back again two times for the reason that of COVID-associated concerns, Hurts obtained no injury designation when the report was introduced Monday.

It appeared Hurts would start out even if the recreation was played Sunday. He was a whole participant in Friday’s follow just after being place through a thriving work out by the staff previously in the day.

“I really feel quite self-assured and really feel seriously great about in which he is at proper now,” Sirianni reported.

It was not all great news Monday, as tackle Andre Dillard was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 listing. He joins fellow offensive lineman Landon Dickerson, who was placed on the listing Sunday. Sua Opeta is very likely to get the start out at left guard if Dickerson can not perform.

Thanks to a timely bye, Hurts skipped just 1 recreation just after struggling a higher-ankle sprain versus the New York Giants Nov. 28. Gardner Minshew stepped in for him versus the Jets and done perfectly, going twenty-of-25 for 242 yards with two touchdowns in a 33-eighteen gain.

Hurts has started 12 games this time, finishing 60.1% of his throws for 2,435 yards with thirteen touchdowns and 8 interceptions although incorporating 695 yards and 8 touchdowns on the floor.
