Eagles’ Jalen Hurts not nervous about Giants concentrating on shoulder

PHILADELPHIA — It is well-known that Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts is enjoying by means of a sprained throwing shoulder, which might turn out to be a goal of the New York Giants within the high-stakes divisional spherical playoff recreation this weekend.
