Hopefully we get this W tomorrow and don’t have to worry about trying to get Hurts back before the playoffs.

From Adam Schefter's ESPN article on it:


If the Eagles can win Saturday in Dallas, they would not need to risk Hurts next week against the Saints. But if they lose Saturday, Hurts will push to play against New Orleans even if he is not fully healthy, as is expected to be the case, according to sources.



The Eagles know how tough Hurts is, and believe he will beat any expected recovery timelines provided by their doctors. Hurts suffered the injury during the third quarter of last Sunday's victory over the Chicago Bears and still finished the game. He didn't want to tell anybody he was injured, according to sources.

Eagles coach Nick Sirianni said this past week that the organization would take it day-by-day in terms of Hurts' availability against the Saints, emphasizing that Hurts "did everything he possibly could" to get himself physically ready to play in this Saturday's NFC East showdown.

"He tried like crazy," Sirianni said. "And I know he still wants to go. Jalen Hurts is the toughest player I've ever been around."


Coaches and training staff gotta protect Jalen from himself.
