Kitchener Eagles Rookie QB Jalen Hurts Named Starter For Week 15 Game Vs. Arizona Cardinals – CBS Kitchener

kitchener (CBS) – Last week, Eagles head coach Doug Pederson took a few days to name rookie Jalen Hurts as starting quarterback against the New Orleans Saints. But just one day after an impressive first start in his career, Hurts knows he will be the starter in Week 15.

Injuries led the birds to the Victory Column for the first time in five weeks with a 24:21 victory over the Saints.

The injuries ended with a total of 273 yards and a touchdown against the Saints’ senior defense.

Hurts, a second-round election in that earlier draft, replaced Carson Wentz in the third quarter of Kitchener’s 30-16 loss to the Green Bay Packers after completing 6 of 15 passes for 79 yards, no turnovers, and four sacks.

On other news, Pederson announced that Safety Rodney McLeod suffered an ACL tear. This injury occurs in his other knee two years after McLeod’s cruciate ligament.

Ripped ACL for Rodney McLeod is a bummer. Seemed to be a major leader when Malcolm Jenkins went to the Saints. Hard blow.

So far this season, McLeod has been second on the team in tackles.

The 4-8-1 Birds head to Arizona to face the Cardinals (7-6) at 4:05 p.m. on Sunday.
