Eagles vs Seahawks Injury Report: Is Jalen Hurts going to play in the week 15 MNF matchup?

The Philadelphia Eagles were undefeated at the initial period of the 2023 NFL season. After missing the Super Bowl title last year, they seemed to be hungry enough to haunt the Lombardi trophy this year by hook or by crook. However, Philly has now digested two back-to-back defeats, albeit they are still sitting atop the NFC East with a 10-3 record.

Meanwhile, the Seattle Seahawks are on the losing end lately. With a 6-7 record, they are sitting at the third spot in the NFC East. The Eagles vs Seahawks clash in Week 15 is going to be a thing to watch as this match might change the scenario of the NFC division. Both teams have updated their injury report ahead of the intense battle.

Will Jalen Hurts participate in Eagles vs Seahawks week 15 matchup?

During Week 6’s clash against the Miami Dolphins, Jalen Hurts stepped onto the field with a leg brace. Initially it was assumed as a knee injury, but the quarterback assured reporters of a speedy recovery post-game. He has been missing Philly’s practice session in the last few days due to “illness.”

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported the signal-caller has been labeled as “questionable” for the crucial game, and the Eagles later updated the news on their social media.

Despite this uncertainty, Schefter expressed optimism about the dual threat’s suiting up for the matchup, while highlighting the QB’s separate travel arrangements to prevent the spread of the illness within the team.

Hurts’ on-field contributions this season have been remarkable as the veteran amassed impressive statistics despite battling through injuries lately. His 3,192 passing yards, 19 touchdowns, 10 interceptions along with 460 rushing yards and 12 touchdowns on the ground speaks volumes.

However, if fate sidelines the starting QB, the spotlight would shift to seasoned backup QB Marcus Mariota. With a blend of experience and athleticism, the 30-year-old will be ready to step into the breach and lead the offensive charge in the Eagles vs Seahawks clash.

Ahead of the Eagles vs Seahawks in Week 15, Philly has updated their third and final official injury report on Saturday.
