The Eagles are getting back an important piece of their offense for Saturday’s divisional game vs. the Giants.Quarterback Jalen Hurts may have played in Philadelphia’s Week 18 game vs. the NFC East foes, but Willie Herenton Jersey was clearly limited as he recovered from a lingering shoulder injury that kept him out of action in Weeks 16 and 17. That contributed to a 20-of-35 pa sing performance for 229 yards and an interception, as well as only 13 yards on nine rushes.Considering the Giants were resting their starters in that game and Hurts was only playing to help ensure the Eagles got the No. 1 seed it’s a good thing he will be fully healthy in the rematch. Or, at least, healthier than he was two weeks ago.Philadelphia earned the top seed in the NFC, providing ample time for Hurts and the Eagles to rest and get healthy. But if the Eagles’ third-year starter is unable to go or becomes re-injured during a game in the playoffs, they have one of the best backups in the league to take over.MORE: That would be Gardner Minshew, formerly of Minshew Mania, who saw extensive work in relief of Hurts in the final stages of the regular season Jimmy Graham Jersey . With that, The Sporting News looks at the quarterback depth chart behind Hurts as the Eagles look for another Super Bowl run: Minshew is the Eagles’ top backup behind Hurts, starting the two games in Weeks 16 and 17 as Hurts recovered from a shoulder injury.The Washington State product combined to complete 42 of 72 pa ses (58.3 percent) for 629 yards and three touchdowns to three interceptions in those starts, both of which ended in lo ses. The first was a Michael Irvin Jersey Dallas, while Week 17 saw a 20-10 lo s at home to the Saints.Prior to the 2022 season, Minshew also played backup to Hurts in 2020, playing in four games and starting two. He went 1-1 that season, completing 41 of 60 pa ses (68.3 percent) for 439 yards and four touchdowns to one interception.MORE: Prior to his arrival in Philadelphia, Minshew was a cult favorite in Jacksonville, particularly in his rookie season, when he led the Jaguars to a 6-6 record as a starter. The rookie out of Washington State was one of the surprises of the year in 2019, completing 285 of 470 pa ses (60.6 percent) for 3,271 yards and 21 touchdowns to six David Njoku Jersey interceptions.His succe s wasn’t to last, however, as Jacksonville went 1-7 with him at the helm in 2020, a season in which he saw significant regre sion, stats-wise: 216 of 327 pa sing (66.1 percent), 2,259 yards, 16 touchdowns and five interceptions.Regardle s, Minshew represents one of the top backup quarterbacks in the league, not only for his ability as a quarterback but also for his experience both as a starter and a backup.MORE: Should Hurts and Minshew be unavailable, the Eagles then would move to third-string quarterback Ian Book, a second-year player out of Notre Dame.RankPlayer1Jalen Hurts2Gardner Minshew3Ian BookThe former Fighting Irish standout has mostly made a career of being a depth piece for the Saints, who drafted him,and Eagles. He was a fourth-round pick in the 2021 NFL Draft Ray Lewis Jersey (No. 133 overall), appearingin only one game as a rookie.Book got the start in Week 15 of the 2021 season, completing 12 of 20 pa ses (60 percent) for 135 yards and two interceptions in a 20-3 lo s to Miami. He did not play another game for the Saints, and was waived by the team on Aug. 30, 2022.The following day, Philadelphia claimed him off waivers. He has yet to appear in a game for Philadelphia in 2022.
