Saturday practice was missed by Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts due to illness. Hurts will go to Seattle alone for Monday night's game against the Seahawks to avoid spreading his ailment
Eagles fans may be concerned, but Hurts' ailment is unconnected to his knee injury. His injury rehabilitation has gone well, which is good news for the team.
It appears things have deteriorated. Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Hurts' condition has worsened overnight and is now questionable for the game.
Hurts still wants to play and flies to Seattle alone to avoid spreading the sickness. Unless Hurts plays, the Eagles will use Marcus Mariota. Hurts has been one of the Eagles' most productive players this season, so its loss would be devastating.
The Eagles have wonderful news. Hurts may play now that the game is on Monday night instead of Sunday. This will give him a day to rest and prepare for the game.
The situation is murky, but Eagles fans hope for the best. However, Mariota is a capable backup and will step up if Hurts cannot play.
