The excitement for the matchup between the Dallas Cowboys and Philadelphia Eagles in Week 16 has dropped a little bit, as Jalen Hurts isn't expected to be in action. In this massive, NFC East battle, Hurts is expected to miss out due to a shoulder injury.

Not only that, but Hurts - per a report - isn't expected to suit up next weekend either. Perhaps Philly might save him until the Divisional Round?

If the Eagles win this weekend, or next, they'll clinch the No. 1 seed in the NFC. If that happens, there will be no need to rush Hurts back from injury. This is going to be something to keep a close eye on.
