Hurns Comments on Recovery Timetable

Monday, Jan. 4

Hurns told reporters he expects to recover in six to eight weeks after undergoing surgery.

Hurns Continued to Emerge As Major Part of Budding Jaguars Passing Attack

Hurns tallied 677 receiving yards and six touchdowns in his rookie season and was even more effective this year, tallying 1,031 yards and 10 touchdowns. He and Allen Robinson form a dynamic wide receiving duo and kept Jacksonville within striking distance of the AFC South for much of the season. 

Jacksonville is building a promising passing attack, and the franchise hopes Hurns will be part of a potential playoff push in 2016. Robinson is a budding superstar and quickly became a top-notch wide receiver in his second season with quarterback Blake Bortles.

The Jaguars also have veteran tight end Julius Thomas. Thomas was not as dangerous this year as he was the past two seasons for the Denver Broncos, but he demonstrated an improved chemistry with Bortles in the second half of the campaign.
