[UPDATE]: Good news on the Hurts front, with the QB reportedly unlikely to miss games, or even practice due to the issue.

Coming out of halftime against the Dolphins on Sunday night, Eagles QB Jalen Hurts was the last player out of the locker room, and was wearing a brace on his left knee. Marcus Mariota was on the sideline warming up, and had his helmet on up until the first offensive drive of the second half, but Hurts ultimately returned to the field.

On the post-game broadcast, Hurts was asked about the knee brace, but he shrugged it off as something that happens, and then said, “I’ll be fine.”

Hurts took some big hits in the first half, including two sacks, and was limping occasionally, but was able to finish. The QB was 12-of-15 for 143 yards and one touchdown pass (to Dallas Goedert), in addition to five carries for 9 yards and a Brotherly Shove touchdown, before halftime.

Any injury to Hurts is a bad thing, and we all saw what Marcus Mariota can (or, really, can’t) do in the preseason — around the time everyone was calling for Tanner McKee to be QB2, instead. Hopefully this won’t be something that affects the starting QB long-term.
