Before the Eagles faced the Seahawks on Monday night, they brought edge rusher Genard Avery back from injured reserve and added tight end Caleb Wilson from the practice squad.
Defensive tackle T.Y. McGill once again was brought up for the game, this time as a COVID-19 replacement.
Avery had been out since suffering an elbow injury in the Eagles’ first meeting with the Giants, on Oct. 22.
The Eagles’ inactives were unremarkable: third quarterback Nate Sudfeld; safety/special-teams gunner Rudy Ford (hamstring); right tackle Lane Johnson, who is headed for IR with an ankle injury; and two rookies -- running back Jason Huntley and wide receiver Quez Watkins.
The Eagles hope to get tight end Zach Ertz (ankle) back from injured reserve for their game Sunday at Green Bay.
Hurts gets two plays in first half
Jalen Hurts didn’t see much of an uptick in playing time early in the Eagles’ 23-17 loss to Seattle. After reports that Hurts was going to get more playing time after getting extra reps with the first-team offense during the practice week, Hurts played just two snaps in the first half.
He threw one pass, a 6-yard completion to Alshon Jeffery, and handed the ball off for no gain on a third down in the second quarter. He was on the field for another play, but Isaac Seumalo was called for a false-start penalty.
After Wentz sparked two scoring drives in the second and third quarters, Hurts didn’t play at all in the third quarter.
