Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts underwent X-rays on his right middle finger that showed no fracture, sources told Tom Pelissero of NFL Network.
Hurts suffered a dislocated finger in a 27-10 loss to the New York Giants in Week 18.
Hurts hit his hand on a Giants pass-rusher on a fourth-down pass attempt in the second quarter. He re-entered the game for two drives before head coach Nick Sirianni pulled many of the team’s starters before halftime.
“It popped out,” Hurts said postgame, according to Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports. “Taking it day by day at this point. Very unfortunate, crazy thing. Never experienced anything like that.”
Hurts added that his finger felt “OK” when throwing the ball.
The 25-year-old finished the contest with seven completions on 16 attempts for 55 yards with one interception. It’s the fewest passing yards he’s thrown for in a start over his four-year career.
Eagles wide receiver A.J. Brown also left the contest due to a knee injury, and the team is waiting on MRI results. However, initial tests showed the ACL is intact, per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. After the game, he greeted his teammates in front of the locker room with no crutches, cast, or brace.
Philadelphia fell to 11-6 on the season, its fifth loss in six contests. The Eagles joined the 1986 New York Jets as the only clubs to start a campaign 10-1 and not finish with 12-plus wins. They will face off against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the Wild-Card round Monday.
