The Philadelphia Eagles are gearing up to make a quarterback change, it seems.
Young pivot Jalen Hurts was performing rehearsals with the First Offensive Unit this week, ESPN reported on Sunday.
In this campaign and for several years now, Carson Wentz is the starter behind the Eagles center. He is struggling in 2020, however. In 10 games this season, the 27-year-old has completed 58.4% of his throws for 2,326 yards and 14 touchdowns. He also committed 14 interceptions and dropped the ball 10 times.
For his part, Hurts was drafted in the second round (53rd overall) of the last NFL auction. This season, he’s made 31 games, but only allowed two assists.
The Eagles will be in action Monday night against the Seattle Seahawks. Wentz is expected to get the start, but it wouldn’t be surprising to see Hurts pick up some reps.
The Pennsylvania club are 3-6-1 and could take first place in the Eastern Division of the American Association if they win in their next outing.
