This was less definite than the Wednesday before facing the Jets, when Hurts stated he would play and that he was unaffected by the injury. Asked about it, Hurts seemed to indicate that missing the game wasn’t entirely his choice.
“In that moment, I was hopeful. I had every intention of doing that … things changed over time,” Hurts said. “The decision was made, and it was the right decision.”
NOTES: Center Jason Kelce said it was his ankle, not his previously injured knee, that he tweaked against the Jets. He said he also has a foot sprain, but that the bye came at a good time and he is on track to start his 119th successive game this week. … RB Miles Sanders (ankle) said he’s “confident about this week.”
