Nick Sirianni has not decided on who will start at quarterback Sunday for the Philadelphia Eagles against the New Orleans Saints, but Jalen Hurts has looked great in the last two practices.

Hurts suffered an SC joint sprain to his shoulder in Philadelphia’s 25-20 victory over the Chicago Bears. He did not play on Christmas Eve versus the Dallas Cowboys. Hurts and Gardner Minshew both have experience, but Sirianni is not revealing his hand on which one will start. Several insiders for the Eagles reported Hurts ‘looked good’ and ‘felt good’ during practices.

In videos on Twitter, Hurts is dancing with teammates, attempting different throws, and moving around while throwing the football. He knows the Eagles need two victories over the Saints and New York Giants for the No. 1 seed in the NFC playoffs and home-field advantage. Hurts is also a leading candidate in the race for the NFL’s Most Valuable Player of the Year honor.

He has 3,472 passing yards, 747 rushing yards, and 35 total touchdowns.
