The team took it inside the practice bubble at the NovaCare Complex for their final practice ahead of Eagles vs. Cowboys on Christmas Eve. Before it began, Head Coach Nick Sirianni announced that Gardner Minshew would be the guy behind center, starting at QB in place of Jalen Hurts, who's still recovering from the shoulder injury he suffered against the Bears.

"It's been great watching everything Jalen's been doing this year. I feel like I've learned a lot from him. I just want to go do my best for him and all of the guys who have put a ton of work into this team," said Minshew in the locker room.

Here's the full injury report:

The Eagles were back on the practice field on Wednesday for another day of preparation for Saturday's game against the Cowboys. Starting quarterback Jalen Hurts was not out there with the rest of the team due to a shoulder injury. Gardner Minshew, however, was back in Philadelphia after delivering a eulogy in honor of his former Mississippi State coach, Mike Leach, who passed away on Dec. 12. Here's the official injury report:

Four more sleeps until Christmas Eve ... and Dallas, the Eagles are comin' to town! The team will travel to AT&T Stadium to take on the Cowboys on Saturday afternoon, in hopes of a No.1 seed-securing win. If they return to Philadelphia with a victory, they'll be gifted a division title, a first-round bye, and home-field advantage during the NFC playoffs.

The news broke on Monday that quarterback Jalen Hurts will spend the week recovering from a shoulder injury he suffered against the Bears on Sunday – it is presently unclear whether or not he will start on Saturday.

The good news is that tight end Dallas Goedert is back in business; he suffered a shoulder injury of his own against the Commanders during Week 10. On Tuesday, in the locker room, he said he's ready to go.

The team held a walkthrough, so Tuesday's injury report is an estimation.
