X-rays showed no fracture to the middle finger of Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts’ throwing hand, NFL Network reported Monday.

Hurts has an extra day to recover as the free-falling Eagles prepare to visit the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for an NFC wild-card game next Monday night.

The Eagles pulled Hurts from Sunday’s game against the New York Giants while trailing by 24 points late in the first half. Philadelphia’s 27-10 loss was its fifth in six games following a 10-1 start.

Hurts was hurt in the first minute of the second quarter when Giants linebacker Bobby Okereke struck him as he was getting rid of the ball. Hurts immediately grabbed his hand and later flashed his awkwardly bent finger.

Hurts stayed in the game but was largely ineffective. He was intercepted by Xavier McKinney with 1:28 remaining in the half and when Philadelphia got the ball back 23 seconds later, Marcus Mariota entered at quarterback.

Hurts, 25, set career highs in passing yards (3,858), touchdown passes (23), interceptions (15) and rushing scores (15) this season.
