There’s no quarterback controversy in Philadelphia.

Jalen Hurts didn’t play this past Sunday against the Jets as he continues to try to heal an ankle issue, and that forced Gardner Minshew into the starting lineup. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

The former Jags starter played at an incredibly impressive level and tossed two touchdowns during the win. However, Hurts doesn’t have to worry about losing his job.

According to ProFootballTalk, head coach Nick Sirianni told the media after the game that Hurts will be back under center as soon as he’s healthy.

This decision shouldn’t surprise anyone. Obviously, it was going to remain Hurts’ team, even with Minshew balling out in his first start in Philly.

The Eagles are clearly committed to the former Alabama star, and that’s not changing after one solid game from Minshew.

Now, would I love to see Minshew get more reps? Without a doubt, but I just don’t see it happening as long as Hurts is healthy.

We all know I love Minshew Mania, but it’s the Hurts show in Philly when he’s healthy. That’s just the reality of the situation.
