The Eagles and QB Jalen Hurts have agreed to a five-year contract extension, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. The deal reportedly includes $255 million in total money, with $179.304 million in guarantees -- plus an extra $15 million in incentives. The pact also comes with a no-trade clause, the first the team has ever given out, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. This obviously locks Hurts in as Philly's starter for the foreseeable future, which is good news for his spot in the dynasty rankings. This could also be a key move in the Lamar Jackson saga. Hurts' deal -- along with other recent second QB contracts -- seems to set the market.

The Eagles promoted Brian Johnson to OC. The 36-year-old has spent the past 2 seasons as Philly's QB coach, helping QB Jalen Hurts develop into 1 of the game's best. While this will be Johnson's first NFL OC gig, he does have 4 years of OC experience at the college level (2012-2013 at Utah, 2017 at Houston and 2020 at Florida). With Johnson's promotion and HC Nick Sirianni back, there should be plenty of continuity for the Eagles' offense in 2023, despite the loss of OC Shane Steichen.

Eagles QB Jalen Hurts completed 15 of 25 attempts for 121 passing yards in addition to rushing for 39 yards and scoring a TD on the ground in Sunday's NFC Championship win vs. the 49ers. Next for Hurts is a showdown against the Chiefs in Super Bowl LVII. The Chiefs' defense ranks as the 2nd-best matchup in adjusted fantasy points allowed to QBs.

Eagles QB Jalen Hurts completed 16 of 24 pass attempts for 154 yards and 2 TDs in Saturday's Divisional Round win vs. the Giants. Hurts also added 34 rushing yards and 1 TD on the ground. The dual threat looked much better and healthier than he had in Week 18 vs. this same Giants' defense. The playoff bye week seems to have been what Hurts needed to give his ailing right shoulder some rest. Whichever team the Eagles end up playing next will certainly have their hands full if Hurts and company can replicate the dominant success from this Divisional round game.

Eagles QB Jalen Hurts did not appear on the team's initial injury report on Tuesday ahead of Saturday's Divisional Round game vs. the Giants. Considering the dual-threat QB missed 2 games due to a right shoulder injury sustained in Week 15 vs. the Bears, his lack of being on the report is tremendous news. Hurts last played against the Giants in Week 18 and posted modern numbers. Hopefully, with some rest behind him, we'll see production closer to what Hurts did in Week 14 with 77 rushing yards and 30.4 fantasy points. A presumably healthy Hurts is easily a top-3 QB in playoff fantasy contests.

Eagles QB Jalen Hurts (right shoulder) is active for today’s game vs. the Giants. He reportedly threw the ball well in practice, and the team isn’t worried about him re-injuring that shoulder. NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reported on Saturday, though, that the Eagles will consider pulling Hurts from this game if they build a big lead. The Eagles are currently 16.5-point favorites vs. this Giants team that’s resting starters.

NFL Network's Mike Garafolo confirms that Eagles QB Jalen Hurts (shoulder) is expected to play vs. the Giants tomorrow. "He threw the ball extremely well in practice this week, and they're confident that he won't re-injure himself," Garafolo says. He adds that the "ideal scenario" is that the Eagles build a big lead and are able to pull Hurts from tomorrow's game. That's the cap on Hurts' Week 18 fantasy ceiling -- but he remains a strong play in season-long leagues.

Eagles QB Jalen Hurts (right shoulder) practiced in a limited fashion all week and is officially questionable for Week 18 vs. the Giants. The Eagles could secure the #1 seed in the NFC playoffs with a win on Sunday. The sense of urgency to win might be enough to see Hurts back under center for the first time since Week 15. Hurts ranks 3rd among QBs in rushing yards per game (54.9), and last he played the Giants in Week 14, he posted 30.4 points. We consider him a top-5 QB in Week 18 if he gets the green light.

Eagles HC Nick Sirianni said Friday morning that QB Jalen Hurts is "trending in the right direction" for playing Sunday against the Giants. Don't be surprised if he carries a "questionable" tag on the final practice report. We'll certainly be watching Hurts' status right up until his game's 4:25 p.m. ET kickoff. Let's hope fantasy football managers get clarity before then, though.

Eagles QB Jalen Hurts (right shoulder) was limited in practice again on Thursday. It's still unclear at this point if he'll be named the starter for Week 18 vs. the Giants. Friday's injury report will give us a better idea of what to expect. We'll let you know how this shakes out tomorrow.

Eagles QB Jalen Hurts (right shoulder) practiced in a limited fashion on Wednesday. Hopefully, the superstar will be able to suit up in Week 18 vs. the Giants. Hurts has not played since injuring his shoulder in Week 15 vs. the Bears. We'll be sure to keep up with this storyline as the week unfolds. Check back tomorrow for an update.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms that the Eagles expect QB Jalen Hurts (shoulder) to play vs. the Giants this weekend. After losing the last 2 weeks, the Eagles still need to win that one to clinch the NFC's #1 seed. Hurts got in limited practices last Thursday and Friday and reportedly threw it well. But Rapoport suggests that he wasn't able to gain full medical clearance to play. We'll continue to keep a close eye on his progress but will be projecting Hurts in our initial Week 18 Rankings.

11:33am EST 1/1/23

Eagles QB Jalen Hurts (right shoulder) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Saints. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported this morning that Hurts is expected to be available for Week 18, although whether and how much he plays in that one will depend on whether the Eagles lock up the NFC’s #1 seed with a win today. QB Gardner Minshew gets another start.

Eagles QB Jalen Hurts (shoulder) is expected to be available for next weekend's regular-season finale against the Giants, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. "Whether and how much Hurts plays in Week 18 will be heavily influenced by what happens Sunday against the Saints," Schefter adds. If the Eagles lose today, they'll need to win next week to clinch the NFC's #1 seed, so we'd likely see a full game from Hurts. If the Eagles win today and lock up that #1 seed, Hurts might get some action as a playoff tuneup but very likely wouldn't play the entire game. Schefter adds that Hurts threw well in practice this week and that the Eagles "have no worries about Hurts' availability and effectiveness for the playoffs."

Eagles QB Jalen Hurts (right shoulder) is officially listed as doubtful for Week 17 vs. the Saints. Looks like fantasy managers are going to get another taste of backup QB Gardner Minshew on Sunday. Minshew had a strong top-12 fantasy outing against the Cowboys last week and should be able to continue with similar success this weekend. Consider Minshew a low-end QB1 in a neutral matchup vs. the Saints.

Eagles QB (right shoulder) managed to practice in a limited fashion on Thursday. This marks the 1st time Hurts has practiced since sustaining his shoulder injury in Week 15 vs. the Bears. It's still unclear whether he will be able to suit up vs. the Saints in Week 17. There's still a strong possibility we'll see QB Gardner Minshew again. Check back tomorrow as we learn more.

Eagles QB Jalen Hurts (right shoulder) did not practice on Wednesday. The talented dual-threat QB missed last week's game vs. the Cowboys and is reportedly very much questionable for Week 17 vs. the Saints. Don't be surprised if QB Gardner Minshew gets the start for the Eagles this coming week, but we don't want to speak too soon either. We'll continue to monitor Hurts' status in practice this week.
