PHILADELPHIA (AP) The first peek at Jalen Hurts on the first day of the Philadelphia Eagles' training camp was his printed image - his eyes covered by cool sunglasses - on the front of coach Nick Sirianni's green T-shirt. The shirt pairs well with the black " HURTS SZN " hat wide receiver A.J. Brown rocked when he arrived at the team's complex.
The message was clear: Yes, the Eagles have the QB's merch - but they also have his back.
The Hurts defenders broke out in numbers Wednesday - as did the few hundred fans that formed an L around the sideline and back of an end zone to watch 58 minutes of practice - to tell critics, the rest of the NFL, any haters that they have faith in their third-year QB.
