Gardner Minshew is starting in quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles against the New York Jets in place of the injured Jalen Hurts.

Hurts are inactive in the game, so Reid Stinnett will act as a backup for Minshew.

Hurts was injured in Philadelphia’s 13-7 loss to the Giants last Sunday, when the sophomore quarterback had his worst game as a professional with three interceptions. His ankle was stepped on in the second half, but he kept playing.

Hurts’ mobility is an important part of his game, so playing with a sprained ankle is a problem. He’s the Eagles’ top driver with 695 yards on 122 runs and has dashed for at least 50 yards in the Eagles’ past six games – the franchise’s first QB to do so since Randall Cunningham in 1990s.

Minshew was acquired in a deal with Jacksonville shortly before the season started. He was third on the Eagles depth chart until Joe Flacco was brought to the Jets on October 25. Minshew’s only appearance this season was in Week 8, when he finished both. his two passes in 11 yards in Philadelphia’s 44-6 victory over Detroit.

Minshew threw 5,530 yards and 37 touchdowns with 11 interceptions in 23 games, including 20 starts, in two seasons at Jacksonville. He became spendable after Jaguar drafted Trevor Lawrence with the overall No. 1 pick in April.

Rerun Jordan Howard is also among the Eagles inactive, but Boston Scott is still active after sitting out all week training with a non-COVID-19 illness.

The Corey Davis wide-field relay is also active after going missing last week with a groin injury and was listed as questionable for this match. – Dennis Waszak Jr. reporting from East Rutherford, New Jersey..
