Last weekend, we got proof that Philadelphia Eagles’ quarterback Jalen Hurts is as tough as they come. During his team’s 27-10 loss against the New York Giants, he suffered a horrible finger injury that made everybody ghasp at the sight. When the image zoomed into the star QB’s hand, you could see the dislocated finger that didn’t go back to place as it usually does when that injury happens. The Kelce brothers had to react to this during Wednesday’s ‘New Heights’ podcast episode. They didn’t just point out how amazedthey were at Jalen Hurts’ resilience but they also talked about how unfazed he was at the situation while on the sidelines.
On the podcast, Travis Kelce went in detail to talk about Jalen Hurts and how he reacted to such a gruesome injury. Jason quipped his quarterback was even making gang signs with his deformed finger as a joke. A clear sign the sight of his injury didn’t shock as it shocked everybody else. Here’s what Travis said: “Jalen got banged up. His finger looked like it was about to snap off and he was walking off all cool, calm and collected like he always is. Crazy, look at it and he’s walking round like nothing is going on. Said he hasn’t ever experienced anything like this injury. He said it popped out. It’s crazy and he was just chilling.”
It is still unclear whether Jalen Hurts will be part of the Philadelphia Eagles team that will play the NFC wild-card game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He did mention that for now, he is taking the injury recovery on a day-to-day basis. Unfortunately, Jason Kelce did mention that this season hasn’t been what the Eagles have expected in terms of fitness. Many injuries have plagued the rest of the team throughout the entire regular season.
