Eagles QB Jalen Hurts has been downgraded to out for Sunday's game against the Jets, according to Eagles writer Derrick Gunn. That will make Gardner Minshew the starter. Gunn adds that RB Boston Scott will be a game-time decision. Scott is dealing with an illness that kept him out of practice all week. With Jordan Howard ruled out, Miles Sanders could be in for a bigger-than-normal workload in 1 of the league's most favorable matchups for RB scoring.

Update: ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Hurts "very well may be out" but that the team wants to "see how Hurts is feeling" Sunday before making a final decision on his status. It still sounds like you should make alternate plans at QB if you had been planning to use Hurts.

Eagles QB Jalen Hurts (ankle) is "up in the air" for Sunday's game vs. the Jets, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Rapoport suggests that Hurts will be a game-time decision and says "there's a chance" QB Gardner Minshew gets the start. The good news for fantasy owners is that we'll find out whether Hurts is active around 11:30 am ET tomorrow. He'll obviously carry more risk than usual in fantasy lineups if he ends up playing.

Eagles QB Jalen Hurts (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game vs. the Jets. He was limited in practice all week. HC Nick Sirianni said Friday morning that Hurts’ status is “an unknown.” We’ll continue looking for updates on Hurts and will find out whether he’s active around 11:30 am ET on Sunday. QB Gardner Minshew would start for Philly if Hurts can't.

Eagles QB Jalen Hurts (ankle) remained limited in Thursday's practice. He's expected to play vs. the Jets this weekend, but it'd be nice to see him get in a full practice on Friday.

Eagles QB Jalen Hurts (ankle) participated in Wednesday's walkthrough and told reporters that he'll play vs. the Jets this weekend. He probably still needs to get the green light from the team docs. But if Hurts does play, the question then becomes how much the ankle injury impacts his rushing production. He'll at least bring more passing upside than usual vs. a Jets squad sitting 31st in Football Outsiders' pass defense rankings.

Eagles HC Nick Sirianni said Monday that QB Jalen Hurts is "nursing a sore ankle" he hurt in Sunday's loss to the Giants, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. He reports that the issue "could impact" Hurts' availability for Sunday's game against the Jets. Philly then has a Week 14 bye, which could factor into the team's decision on who will start at QB. Gardner Minshew would fill in if Hurts can't go.

The Jaguars have traded QB Gardner Minshew to the Eagles for a conditional 2022 sixth-round draft pick. Philly also released QB Nick Mullens, positioning Minshew as at least the 3rd QB on the depth chart. He'll need only to work past Joe Flacco to become Jalen Hurts' backup. That's a nice spot for the 25-year-old Minshew, whose rookie contract runs through 2022. Jacksonville, meanwhile, has C.J. Beathard and Jake Luton around as backups to Trevor Lawrence.

Eagles QB Jalen Hurts returned to practice on Sunday. He was a late scratch for Thursday night's preseason game vs. the Patriots due to a stomach infection. It should be a non-issue going forward.

Eagles QB Jalen Hurts missed Thursday night's game against the Patriots with what's been diagnosed as a stomach infection, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Hurts was reportedly told to rest at home for 2 days. Beyond that, he should be good to go. We'll pass along any further upsdates.

The Eagles announced just before Thursday night's game against the Patriots that they would hold QB Jalen Hurts out because of illness. That gave Joe Flacco the start (and it didn't go well). This doesn't look like a situation that will affect Hurts' availability any further.

Reports out of Eagles training camp have been up and down on 2nd-year QB Jalen Hurts. But ESPN's Tim McManus says the new starter has looked particularly good in 1 key area. "Hurts has been money on throwing the deep balls," McManus writes. "He has shown a knack for hitting his receivers in stride with touch, even from 40-plus yards out." According to McManus, Hurts also tied Tom Brady, Derek Carr and Deshaun Watson for most completions of 30+ yards from Week 13 on last season -- Hurts' starting stretch. The young QB has reportedly struggled more in the short and intermediate ranges. We can work with that combo in fantasy. Hurts' strong deep passing plus the speed of his top 2 WRs -- DeVonta Smith and Jalen Reagor -- only adds upside to a QB whose most attractive in fantasy for his rushing ability. Deshaun Watson rumors have knocked Hurts down some ADP boards recently, which could be a buying opportunity on a risk-reward fantasy QB.

Eagles QB Jalen Hurts is expected to see "increased playing time" at QB against the Seahawks on Monday night, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. QB Carson Wentz reportedly won't be on the field for at least some of those snaps, so it sounds like Hurts will be in a more traditional QB role than he's played so far this season. "It's unlikely that Hurts, the second-round Heisman finalist from Oklahoma and Alabama, will get to take an entire series," Rapoport writes. "More likely, it will be two or three plays at a time. But, based on the game plan and the week of practice, he should see his most significant snaps yet." We don't know exactly how much Hurts will end up playing, but this is obviously a knock against Wentz's Week 12 fantasy value. Despite the dream matchup vs. Seattle, we'd look elsewhere in 1-QB leagues.
