Hurns Active vs. Colts

Sunday, Dec. 13

Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union noted the Jaguars' inactive list for the game against the Indianapolis Colts, and Hurns wasn't on it, meaning he is available to play.

Hurns Comments on Concussion

Monday, Dec. 7

Hurns told reporters he was knocked unconscious and doesn't remember the play in which he suffered the injury.


Hurns Released from Hospital After Scary Injury

Sunday, Nov. 29

O'Halloran noted Hurns was discharged from the hospital after the Jaguars' loss to the Chargers.

According to Around the NFL, Hurns was injured in the fourth quarter after his head hit the EverBank Field turf following his attempt to make a diving catch. ESPN's Michael DiRocco reported the Jaguars medical staff quickly stabilized Hurns' head and placed him on a stretcher.


Hurns a Big Part of Emerging Jaguars Passing Attack

Last year's rookie class was loaded with talented wideouts, so Hurns' 51 receptions, 677 yards and six touchdowns got lost in the shuffle somewhat. Allen Robinson's presence also resulted in Hurns' hard work not getting the appreciation it otherwise might have.

Offense has consistently been an issue for the Jaguars, especially since Maurice Jones-Drew's decline, which began in 2012. But between Hurns, Robinson and quarterback Blake Bortles, Jacksonville has the makings of a great passing attack for years to come.

Fans should also be encouraged by the former Miami Hurricane after his progress in his second year. Through 11 games, he's caught 48 passes for 758 yards and seven touchdowns.
