Jalen Hurts wears leg brace in 2nd half as Eagles top Dolphins

PHILADELPHIA -- Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts performed the second half of Sunday night's 31-17 win over the Miami Dolphins with a brace on his left leg.

Hurts did not go into a good deal of element postgame, but a source said it's believed to be a knee harm.

"I'll be high-quality," Hurts said, although whilst asked if it's something with a purpose to affect him moving forward, he spoke back, "I desire not."

Hurts on Sunday rushed eleven times (along with 3 kneel-downs) for 21 yards and a touchdown even as throwing for 279 yards with touchdowns and an interception. He rushed 3 times within the 2nd half.

Hurts appeared to be grimacing as he jogged off the field after the game. Teammates indicated he played through pain.

"I don't want to put his business out there, but he's a tough individual," receiver A.J. Brown said.

"Our style of play, sometimes he scrambles out and may get nicked up," added right tackle Lane Johnson. "But he does a good job. He never really shows it or complains or anything."
