Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts has been dealing with a shoulder injury for over a month, but it didn't look like it hindered him much in the NFC Championship Game. Hurts said Thursday that he's still working through it but expects to play.

On Tuesday, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Trey Lance told reporters he'd be cleared soon after undergoing two surgeries on his broken ankle. Lance is expected to be a full-go by OTAs. This is good news for the Niners, who are expected to be rid of Jimmy Garoppolo soon and have Brock Purdy out for at least six months.
Speaking of 49ers QBs, rookie Brock Purdy is currently awaiting second opinions on his injured UCL - a repair vs. reconstruction surgery will determine the time he will be able to return to football activities. Purdy told reporters on Tuesday that he will make a final decision soon.

The New York Jets hired Nathaniel Hackett as their offensive coordinator on Thursday, sparking questions about whether Aaron Rodgers will come with the deal. With the Zach Wilson Experience on the back burner, Hackett's previous experience with Rodgers is an intriguing option for a team desperate for a starting-caliber QB. Head coach Robert Saleh said on Thursday that the team is committed to bringing in a veteran QB but didn't get into any names.

Merry Christmas to me!
The Indianapolis Colts are benching quarterback Matt Ryan - yes, again - for Nick Foles. Foles will be their third quarterback to start this season. Definitely not what they had planned.
The first time Ryan was benched, rookie Sam Ehlinger took over, and head coach Frank Reich was later fired. Then, the Colts hired Jeff Saturday for some reason, went back to Ryan, and blew the biggest lead in NFL history.
Foles, their last hope, is a former Super Bowl MVP and has only played two snaps this season - the final snaps of a 24-0 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars. Foles said on Wednesday that he had no frustration towards the Colts for not turning to him earlier in the season.
The Colts take on Justin Herbert, an actual good QB, and the Los Angeles Chargers on Monday Night Football.

We may have seen the last of Jalen Hurts in the regular season. During this week's Philadelphia Eagles win, Hurts was tackled into the turf, where he suffered a sprained shoulder.
Hurts did have an MRI on Monday, which was negative and showed that the injury wasn't serious, but it may be severe enough to pull him out for the next two weeks. The Eagles want him at his healthiest heading into the playoffs.
Backup QB Gardner Minshew will take Hurts' spot until he's ready to go, and it looks like that will happen at least this weekend against the Dallas Cowboys.

The Philadelphia Eagles are undefeated no more. Unfortunately, the Eagles played their worst game all season with three turnovers. While the game went back and forth for most of the duration, it wasn't as close as the score might suggest. The Eagles couldn't keep the Washington Commanders off the field (not something I thought I'd ever say), and it seemed like every time Philly seemed to get it together, they turned the ball over.
Neither quarterback impressed, but Washington QB Taylor Heinicke celebrated in style on the flight home. If this doesn't seal him keeping the starting job, I'm not sure what will.
