Jacksonville WR Hurns not yet cleared to practice after concussion
A concussion suffered in last Sunday's loss to the San Diego Chargers has put Jacksonville wide receiver Allen Hurns' availability for this week's game against the Tennessee Titans in question, with head coach Gus Bradley describing the situation as "day to day."
Per Vito Stellino of the Florida Times-Union, Hurns remains in the NFL's concussion protocol and has yet to be cleared to return to practice after being injured late in the 31-25 loss to Chargers.
The Jaguars, meanwhile are preparing to face the Titans without Hurns, with offensive coordinator Greg Olson calling the prospect of playing without his second-leading receiver "a big blow."
“We talked about him last week, not only as a player, but what he brings to us in terms of leadership.” Olson said, per the Times-Union. “It’s practice, his work ethic for other players to see. Anytime you lose a starter, no different than when we lost (guard) Brandon Linder. He was a big loss for us. Those types of players, it’ll hurt us.”
If the Jaguars are indeed without Hurns on Sunday, Bradley indicated second-year wideout Marqise Lee would have a "good shot" to start.
Safety Josh Evans, who also suffered a concussion against San Diego, was cleared to return to practice on a limited basis Wednesday.
