Eagles are making Jalen Hurts their No. 2 quarterback today

Jalen Hurts will be making his debut for the Eagles on Sunday, serving as the team’s backup quarterback behind Carson Wentz. 

Could we see Jalen Hurts take the field on Sunday for the first time in a Philadelphia Eagles jersey? Things could end up happening for the former Oklahoma and Alabama signal-caller following a big decision from head coach Doug Pederson.

On Sunday morning, it was announced Hurts will be on the active list for the team’s showdown at home against the Los Angeles Rams. Not only that, but Hurts will be the team’s No. 2 signal-caller behind Carson Wentz.

Will Doug Pederson open up the playbook on Sunday and let Jalen Hurts showcase his speed?

With Hurts on the sidelines on Sunday, all eyes will be on Pederson to see if he lets his rookie quarterback take the field. While Wentz is no question the starter and leader of this offense, word from camp has been that the coaching staff loves Hurts’ dual-threat abilities and could even use him in the same kind of fashion the Saints do with Taysom Hill.

For Philadelphia, they’re looking to bounce back from their season-opening loss. In that defeat, they were stunned by the Washington Football Team, causing Eagles fan to go into a bit of a panic mode to kickstart the year.

Come Sunday, they’ll host a Rams team that’s familiar with taking down NFC East opponents, as they delivered Dak Prescott, Ezekiel Elliott and the Dallas Cowboys a Week 1 loss.

Stay tuned on Sunday to see how things play out, Eagles fans. There’s a good possibility we see Hurts take the field and look to provide plenty of headaches to the LA defense with his strong arm and great wheels.
