Minshew Mania begins, Boston Scott’s status revealed: Eagles-Jets inactive list
After rumors circulated it wasn’t official just yet, the Eagles have confirmed that Gardner Minshew is the starting quarterback today, with Jalen Hurts being inactive. Alongside Hurts, running back Jordan Howard is out once again as well. Luckily, outside of Hurts, the injury list isn’t as bad as expected.
The critical name not listed is Boston Scott, who was thought to be out or at least a game-time decision. Scott has been battling an illness all week but looks to be good to go. Philadelphia will likely feature Sanders as the RB1 still, but Scott will be a crucial piece to their running game.
None of the others are shocking, being just healthy inactives in the secondary and defensive line. Gowan is the only one who has seen playing time, so the Eagles will be just fine without any of these players. New York listed their inactives as well, but nobody crucial is missing for them either. Kick-off is scheduled for 1:00.
