EAGLES INJURY REPORT: Jalen hurt someone who was not involved to start another week.

As the Eagles begin the bye week against the Saints, quarterback Jalen Harts was listed as out of action on the first injury report of the week.

While the Eagles will take a walk on Wednesday, the injury report is expected to be available during practice.

Not a great sign for him this Sunday against the Saints.

Eagles head coach Nick Siriani was purposely tight-lipped when asked about Horts’ availability for the upcoming game on Wednesday. New Orleans wants to be forced to prepare for two quarterbacks as much as possible. The Eagles did this last week with a lead in the Cowboys game when Hurts was finally ruled out two days before the game.

Here’s the Eagles’ full injury report from Wednesday:

They didn’t practice; Jalen Hurts (shoulder), Lane Johnson (groin), Avonte Maddox (finger), Miles Sanders (knee).

Specific: AJ Brown (knee), Jordan Davis (concussion).

Injuries kept him from practicing until the Cowboys game last week.

Syriani Harts is now feeling better than last week but did not give many other details.

“Yeah, we’ll see,” Siriani said of Hearts’ availability this week. “We’ll continue to see how he progresses throughout the week. Does he have a chance? Of course he will, because his body knows how to heal. He’s a coward. We’ll see what happens as the week progresses.

Guda, 24, suffered a sprained shoulder in the Eagles’ Week 15 win over the Bears and missed the Christmas Eve game against the Cowboys. As the Eagles lost that game 40-34, backup quarterback Gardner Minshew played well and the Eagles gained 422 yards on offense.

The offense’s biggest problem in the game against the Cowboys was turnovers. Minshaw has thrown two picks and the Eagles have lost two. But outside of those critical mistakes, the Eagles’ offense faltered and didn’t score a single goal.

If the Eagles can win against the Saints on Sunday afternoon, it will give them the No. 1 seed in the NFC and two more weeks to heal an injured shoulder. Because not only would the Eagles get a first-round bye in the NFC, it would make Week 18 meaningless for the Eagles in the playoff picture.

The surprise on the injury report is running back Myles Sanders’ knee injury. Sanders has been a big part of the Eagles offense this year and has over 1,000 yards. If he can’t play this weekend, the Eagles will have Boston Scott, Kenny Gainswell and Trey Sermon.

Brown’s injury is also a new addition. The injury report didn’t come out until after the Eagles’ walk, but Brown was in the locker room on Wednesday and told reporters.

We know Johnson and Maddox will both miss some time with injuries suffered in Saturday’s loss. Johnson has a torn ligament in his abdomen and plans to skip surgery to return to action. Maddox has a toe injury and is reportedly out indefinitely.

The Eagles did not start C.J. Gardner-Johnson’s practice window on Wednesday. The safety/nickel corner has missed at least four games on IR with a lacerated kidney, but doesn’t appear ready to return.

“It doesn’t mean he’s fit to come back, even though I know he wants to,” Siriani said on Monday. “Again, all the guys want it, so we’ll see. When he does those tests, we’re just waiting for some results to come back.
