Hurts underwent a shoulder X-ray Monday, and based on the results, Siriani says the team doesn’t see the injury as “long-term.”

“He’s attacking his corrector,” Siriani said He said on SportsRadio 94WIP Tuesday. “We’ll see what happens this week.”

The Eagles will go with Gardner Minshew if the Hurts can’t play against the Cowboys, needing just one win in their last three games to clinch the NFC East and home court advantage in the NFC Playoffs. Minshew started one game in place of Hurts last season, completing 20 of 25 passes for 242 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions for a 133.7 average. He also started the Eagles’ Final Four in Week 18 against the Cowboys, but Philadelphia earned a playoff spot and was given a rest start.

“this person [Minshew] “He’s a great backup quarterback who can start on teams in this league,” said Siriani, “and we know that.” He doesn’t need a lot of actors. He’s ready to go because of his football IQ, the smarts he has.

“If he has to go, we’ll trust him 100 percent because he can on the ball. He proved that last year. I think he’s proven that throughout his career. He’s a winner. He’s a winner. That’s all he knows how to do.”

As for Hurts himself, he told reporters there was “definitely a chance” to play on Saturday.

“I take it day in and day out,” Hortz said. “Everybody knows I’m on to something. I think it’s very public. It’s right there. I’m not one to speak for myself. Obviously, being the quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles, you can’t escape that. But I do take it all someday with it, And I’m preparing for a really good defense.”
