Eagles Star QB Listed As Questionable For Week 18

The Philadelphia Eagles have officially listed quarterback Jalen Hurts (shoulder) as questionable on their Friday injury report ahead of Week 18 where they will faceoff against the New York Giants. 

Hurts, who has been sidelined with a shoulder injury he suffered in Week 15's victory against the Chicago Bears, missed the last two games which have each concluded in losses with backup quarterback Gardner Minshew leading Philadelphia's offense. 

Although the Eagles are on a two-game losing skid, with a record of 13-4, they were the first team in the NFL to clinch a playoff berth, but they may look to insert Hurts to help increase their chances to position themselves No.1 in the conference and secure a bye in the first round of the postseason. 

However, the Giants, who clinched a playoff spot last week with their 38-10 victory over the Colts, are seemingly resting most of their key players this weekend ahead of the postseason and as a result the Eagles could afford to sit their franchise quarterback at least another week until the beginning of the playoffs to ensure he is 100% healthy.
