The Eagles returned to practice on Thursday following the bye and released their first injury report ahead of Monday night’s game vs. Kansas City.
Thursday Injury Report
Cam Jurgens and Bradley Roby were full participants today after missing several weeks; both players are trending toward being available this week. After having his 21-day practice window activated, safety Justin Evans returned in a limited capacity.
The bye week also proved beneficial to QB Jalen Hurts. During a post-practice presser, Hurts acknowledged that he’s no longer wearing the brace on his left knee, indicating a recovery from his lingering bone bruise.
“I was not [wearing the sleeve],” Hurts said via video from the team. “I think time is a sign of progress. The bye week came at a great time. We all took advantage of that or tried to take advantage of that time off. Everything is trending forward.”
The co-MVP favorite has maintained stellar play despite his injury, but Philly’s rushing game was clearly hampered without the element of Hurts. Now that QB1 is back at 100%, or close to it, expect the offense to return to form.
At 8-1, the Eagles sit atop the NFC and enter the toughest stretch of their season — starting with a Super Bowl rematch on Monday night.
