The Philadelphia Eagles' injury report has sent fans on a wild ride since the end of Week 15. Philadelphia revealed a shocking shoulder injury to MVP candidate Jalen Hurts earlier this week. The original description of Hurts' ailment had many expecting Gardner Minshew to earn a start in his absence.

Hurts spoke with the media on Tuesday and revealed his chances of playing against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 16.

Hurts turned the situation completely around with his comments, saying "it's feeling fine." He was asked directly about playing against Dallas, to which the young gunslinger replied, "definitely a chance."

This will be a wait-and-see situation for the Eagles, who are likely to monitor Hurts' progress and pain levels throughout a week of practice. Week 16's NFC East clash has huge implications on the playoff race as an Eagles win will lock up the conference's No. 1 seed.

For now, the Eagles are considered 5.5-point road underdogs according to FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL odds.
