Jalen Hurts’ Performance Declining Ahead of Match Against Seahawks

Published on



Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts now appears to be trending in the wrong direction ahead of Monday night’s game at the Seattle Seahawks. Hurts, who was a DNP at Saturday’s practice due to illness, has been downgraded to questionable after his condition “worsened overnight,” per ESPN’s Adam Schefter.“Eagles are downgrading QB Jalen Hurts to questionable for Monday night’s game in Seattle after his sickness worsened overnight, per a source,” Schefter tweeted. “Hurts still is harboring hopes of playing Monday night, and is traveling to Seattle separately from the team so as to try not get anyone else sick.”


Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts is out of Saturday’s practice due to an illness, per Eagles reporter Jeff McLane. He is expected to travel with the team to Seattle for Monday night’s meeting with the Seahawks.Hurts missing a practice for any reason is always going to raise some eyebrows, but Eagles fans can breath a sign of relief knowing that this isn’t an issue with the lingering knee injury that he’s been battling this season. Ask Hurts, and he’d probably say that an illness will be the last thing to prevent from facing the Seahawks in a game that Philly needs to win to keep themselves in control of their own destiny to the No. 1 seed in the NFC playoffs.This season, Hurts has gone 286 of 430 passing for 3,192 yards, 19 touchdowns and 10 picks to go along with 126 carries for 460 yards and 12 rushing touchdowns.


The NFL is prohibiting Philadelphia Eagles security chief Dom DiSandro from being on the sideline for Sunday night’s road game against the Dallas Cowboys due to his role in the sideline altercation with San Francisco 49ers linebacker Dre Greenlaw last week. DiSandro will still maintain his normal duties during Sunday’s game. It’s unclear if this sideline ban will be for the remainder of the season. However, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter, this decision appears to be ongoing.”DiSandro and other Eagles’ officials met Friday morning at the league office in New York with commissioner Roger Goodell,” Schefter tweeted. “The league still is reviewing additional material to see if further discipline is warranted.”The Eagles released a statement on Saturday following the news: “This is an ongoing conversation with the NFL, and we are going to respect the restriction that is currently in place. Although Dom will not be on the sideline this Sunday, he will continue to fulfill his role with the team in all other capacities.”


The Philadelphia Eagles are making roster moves ahead of their meeting with the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday and in light of signing former Indianapolis Colts linebacker Shaquille Leonard.On Wednesday, the Eagles waived linebacker Chrisitian Elliss, who started in Sunday’s 42-19 loss to the San Francisco 49ers, signed receiver Greg Ward to the practice squad and released receiver Cam Sims from the practice squad.

Three former Philadelphia Eagles are being recognized for their collegiate achievements.Running back Brian Westbrook (Villanova), cornerback Troy Vincent (Wisconsin) and wide receiver Jeremy Maclin (Missouri) are among the inductees for this year’s College Football Hall of Fame class.Each player had strong collegiate careers before becoming key contributors for the Eagles in the NFL.

Congrats to @36westbrook, @TroyVincentSr, and @jmac___19 on making it into the College Football Hall of Fame 👏#FlyEaglesFly pic.twitter.com/A4BdKFQurz— Philadelphia Eagles (@Eagles) December 6, 2023


Dallas got the first shot. Philly is up next. That’s the agenda for free agent Shaq Leonard, who was at The Star in Frisco, Texas, on Tuesday for a recruiting visit that included lunch with team owner Jerry Jones. But while the visit reportedly “went well,” the deal has not been done, and so the coveted three-time Pro Bowl linebacker is now headed for a similar visit here in Philadelphia.”(The Eagles) interest doesn’t surprise me at all,” Jones said on Tuesday morning before the visit.”But we’ve got an attractive situation here. Not only with the way we are playing, but just the aura of the Dallas Cowboys.”Jordan Schultz of The Score was first to report that Dallas’ “aura” did not result in a “don’t let him leave the building” signing, as Leonard is now Philly-bound. … with a decision to make that might be in large part about which team is more likely to provide him a chance at a Super Bowl ring.


The Dallas Cowboys are getting the first shot at recruiting former three-time Pro Bowl linebacker Shaq Leonard, recently cut by the Indianapolis Colts; that’s been confirmed by sources in Dallas.But after that? ESPN is now reporting that he “should be visiting later this week” with the Philadelphia Eagles. USA Today Leonard, 28, has seen a decline in his level of play due to injuries, but is still viewed as a top-notch run-stopper and a high-character locker room presence.


Philadelphia Eagles veteran defensive tackle Fletcher Cox was questionable to return to Sunday’s game against the Buffalo Bills at Lincoln Financial Field due to a groin injury. However, the Eagles have now officially ruled him out for the remainder of the game.Cox suffered the injury near Buffalo’s goal line in the first half and had to be walked back to the locker room. The Eagles will now look to continue leaning on Jalen Carter, Brandon Graham, Josh Sweat and others on the defensive line if Cox misses extended time. The Eagles lead Buffalo 28-24 late in the fourth quarter.


The Philadelphia Eagles still have the Dallas Cowboys breathing down their necks after a 33-10 win against the Carolina Panthers.The Cowboys are now 7-3, just 1.5 games back against the Eagles. Meanwhile, the New York Giants beat the Washington Commanders, who are now non-factors in the playoff race.


When the Eagles and Chiefs played nine months ago, the field was a part of the story. It could be the same for the much-anticipated rematch Monday night.Last February it was slippery footing during Super Bowl LVII in Glendale, Arizona. This time – when the 8-1 Eagles and 7-2 Chiefs meet for regular-season supremacy – the forecast at Kansas City’s Arrowhead Stadium calls for temperatures in the upper 30s and a 55-percent chance of rain.The Eagles have maintained that the Chiefs were “blessed” by the sloppy field in Arizona. If the forecasters are right, Philly may have to overcome more less-than-perfect conditions to upset the defending champions.


Philadelphia Eagles rookie pass rusher Nolan Smith is set to be a Week 11 guest picker on College Gameday for Saturday’s matchup between the No. 2 Georgia Bulldogs and the No. 9 Ole Miss Rebels in Athens.Smith took to Instagram to help reveal the announcement: #Eagles Nolan Smith is heading back to Athens to be the guest picker on #CollegeGameDay and to support the #Dawgs this Saturday!LETS GO PHILLY DAWGS!!! #FlyEaglesFly #GoDawgs #PhillyDawgs pic.twitter.com/JE5XjI1DBy— Philly Dawgs (@PHLDawgs) November 10, 2023 Smith, a two-time champion with the Bulldogs, played at Georgia for four seasons from 2019-22. During his college career, he posted 113 tackles, 11.5 sacks, three forced fumbles and one interception. He would go on to be the No. 30 overall pick in the 2023 NFL Draft this past April. This season with the Eagles, he’s tallied seven total tackles and one sack.


Philadelphia Eagles tight end Dallas Goedert had to be helped to the locker room after suffering an apparent upper body injury in the third quarter of Sunday’s meeting with the Dallas Cowboys at Lincoln Financial Field. The Eagles announced that Goedert is out with a right forearm injury. He was originally questionable to return.  Goedert had just picked up a big gain on a 28-yard catch-and-run to get the Eagles down to the Dallas 41-yard line. However, he landed awkwardly on his arm at the end of the play and laid on the ground for a few moments. Goedert exits with three catches for 50 yards.
