Eagles' Jalen Hurts: Likely to see added snaps Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hurts is expected to see increased playing time at quarterback behind starter Carson Wentz in Monday's game against the Seahawks, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

The Eagles have mostly deployed Hurts as a gadget player through their first 10 games, but this week, Rapoport notes that "unlike previous snaps, Wentz won't be on the field" when Hurts is out there. In preparation for Hurts taking on an expanded role, the Eagles have handed the rookie second-round pick increased reps with the first-team offense during recent practices, per Tim McManus of ESPN.com. According to Rapoport, the added usage with the first team is expected to result in Hurts seeing his "most significant snaps yet," likely "two or three plays at a time" rather than entire series. The Eagles' approach at quarterback could of course be altered based on the flow of Monday's game, but at this stage, the team looks poised to give Hurts added opportunities in Week 12 to provide the offense with the sort of spark Wentz has struggled to provide in recent weeks.

Eagles' Jalen Hurts: Will keep seeing designed plays
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Doug Pederson said Monday that getting Hurts involved on designed plays is "something we'll continue to explore" each week, Martin Frank of The Delaware News Journal reports.

Pederson also suggested that Hurts could handle packages out of the backfield if Miles Sanders (knee) is forced to miss any time. The rookie signal-caller provided Philadelphia's offense with a few much-needed sparks during Sunday's 30-28 loss to the Ravens, though his insertion into the lineup was only occasional. On three touches Sunday (two carries, one reception), Hurts totaled 26 yards, and he also served as an effective decoy during a 74-yard run by Sanders which, after a fumble, resulted in a touchdown by J.J. Arcega-Whiteside.

Eagles' Jalen Hurts: Deemed active Week 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hurts is listed as active Sunday against the Rams.

Just one game removed from opening his pro career as a healthy scratch, Hurts will serve as the No. 2 quarterback to Carson Wentz, Chris McPherson of the Eagles' official site reports. The 2020 second-round pick will swap in for Nate Sudfeld, but it remains to be seen if Hurts will make any sort of impact or merely has surpassed Sudfeld for the backup gig.

Eagles' Jalen Hurts: Healthy scratch Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hurts (coach's decision) is listed as inactive Sunday at Washington.

A healthy scratch to begin his NFL career, the 2020 second-round pick will don street clothes while Nate Sudfeld serves as Carson Wentz's backup. Without an injury to the two quarterbacks in front of him, Hurts may be a regular inactive for the Eagles for the foreseeable future.

Eagles' Jalen Hurts: Starts off as No. 3 QB
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Doug Pederson said Carson Wentz and Nate Sudfeld -- rather than Hurts -- will get most of the QB reps during training camp, Daniel Gallen of The Harrisburg Patriot-News reports.

It isn't the first time Pederson has hinted at Hurts beginning his career as the No. 3 quarterback in Philadelphia. That said, the rookie took 16 snaps in a sharp performance at Monday's practice, while Sudfeld got 17 snaps and didn't play nearly as well, according to Eliot Shorr-Parks of 94 WIP. Even if Sudfeld enters Week 1 in the backup job, Hurts could oust him before the end of the season.

Eagles' Jalen Hurts: Likely to open career as No. 3 QB
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eagles coach Doug Pederson said Tuesday that while Hurts will have the opportunity to compete for the No. 2 quarterback job, the rookie is likely to begin the season behind both Carson Wentz and Nate Sudfeld on the depth chart, Matt Mullin of PhillyVoice.com reports. "Football teams are going to have to rely on their veteran players, and Nate is one of those guys for us. I have a ton of confidence in Nate to become the backup quarterback," Pederson said. "Nothing is ever handed to anybody, and we always try to create competition at every position, and quarterback is not exempt from that. But I fully expect Nate to come in and be aggressive and do the things that he's capable of doing and become the backup to Carson."

Though the Eagles used the 53rd overall pick in April's draft on Hurts, that investment alone won't give the rookie the leg up in the job battle with Sudfeld, who is entering his fourth year in the Eagles' system. The shortened offseason in light of the coronavirus pandemic will only make it more difficult for Hurts to gain familiarity with Pederson's offensive scheme, so his first year in the NFL could be more of a developmental one, at least from the perspective of a traditional quarterback. Hurts' skills as a runner may still allow him to see occasional snaps as a gadget player or Wildcat quarterback, but in the event of a Wentz injury, Sudfeld looks to be the next man up under center.

Eagles' Jalen Hurts: Surprise Philly pick in the second
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Eagles selected Hurts in the second round of the 2020 NFL Draft, 53rd overall.

Hurts (6-foot-1, 222) is a compelling quarterback prospect out of Oklahoma, but his selection by Philadelphia is a little strange. Good as Hurts might be, he will likely never challenge Carson Wentz for Philadelphia's starting quarterback role, reducing him to a backup and gadget player. Even with Wentz's various durability concerns, it feels like overkill to spend so much on a backup quarterback. Hurts shows promise for his own part, though, improving his accuracy at Oklahoma after he got Wally Pipped by Tua Tagovailoa at Alabama. Perhaps Hurts will earn Wildcat snaps or some such thing, his 4.59 speed affording playmaking ability on gimmick plays, but for the indefinite future he looks more like an expensive emergency measure for the Eagles.
