Jaguars WR Allen Hurns (ankle) is listed as day to day.
With the Jags down 41-10 and 21 seconds left Sunday, Chad Henne hit Hurns on a short crossing pattern. He ended up spraining his ankle on the tackle. Hurns' already fluttering stock will take another hit if Cecil Shorts (hamstring) can get back this week. Sep 15 - 1:07 PM

Allen Hurns left the stadium on crutches after sustaining an ankle injury in Sunday's Week 2 loss at Washington.

It was a rough day for Hurns. Early on, he roasted DeAngelo Hall but dropped a bomb while 10 yards clear of the defense. And then with 21 seconds left and the Jags down 41-10, he ran a crossing pattern and twisted his ankle awkwardly as he went down. It looks like Allen Robinson and Marqise Lee will be the Jags' top-two receivers if Cecil Shorts (hamstring) can't get back for Week 3.

Coach Gus Bradley said that Allen Hurns will be the Jaguars' No. 2 receiver even when Cecil Shorts (hamstring) returns.

It's the first we've heard of Hurns being ahead of Marqise Lee on the depth chart. Jaguars reporter Mike DiRocco says it's because Hurns has a better grasp of the offense after playing for OC Jedd Fisch at the University of Miami. If true, it would make the UDFA a far more intriguing hold than previously thought. For now, however, it doesn't really matter as Shorts does not appear close to getting over his latest injury. Hurns is going to start opposite Lee against the bad Redskins secondary on Sunday and has WR4 appeal.

Allen Hurns caught four passes for 110 yards with two touchdowns in Sunday's Week 1 loss to the Eagles.

Cecil Shorts (hamstring) was sidelined, leaving Hurns to start opposite Marqise Lee. The intriguing undrafted rookie out of Miami immediately made his presence felt, roasting Cary Williams for two touchdowns in the first quarter. It didn't feel fluky, as Hurns dominated the preseason with 14-232-1 on 136 snaps. He's not going to keep the starting job ahead of Shorts, but could certainly put pressure on Lee for snaps in two-wide sets. This entire Jags receiving corps will get a boost if/when Blake Bortles takes over, making Hurns worth a deep-league add. Just don't go nuts and expect WR3 production weekly.

Allen Hurns is listed as the starter in place of Cecil Shorts (hamstring) for Sunday's Week 1 game against the Eagles.

Mike Brown was projected as the starter initially, but Hurns makes far more sense. The UDFA was a revelation in the preseason, and clearly beat out Brown. Look for Marqise Lee to pace the Jags in targets against the Eagles' exploitable secondary, with Brown and Allen Robinson mixing in for 3-and 4-wide sets. The Jags' inactives: WR Cecil Shorts III, RB Storm Johnson (ankle), OT Austin Pasztor (hand), TE Clay Harbor (calf), G Tyler Shatley, DE Chris Smith and OT Josh Wells.

Jaguars UDFA Allen Hurns is expected to open the season as the team's No. 3 receiver, behind Cecil Shorts and Marqise Lee.

Shorts is the X and Lee the Z receiver in two-wide sets. In the three-wides, we suspect Lee will move inside to the slot, with Shorts and Hurns on the outside. Hurns beat out Mike Brown for the No. 3 role, although he will soon be pushed by recovering second-rounder Allen Robinson (hamstring). Despite Hurns' big August, Robinson is by far the superior stash in Dynasty leagues.

UDFA Allen Hurns had seven catches for 113 yards and a touchdown in the Jaguars' third preseason game Friday night.

Hurns saw regular snaps with the first team, playing opposite Marqise Lee in two-wide sets. He played in OC Jedd Fisch’s system at Miami and has shown good chemistry with Chad Henne and Blake Bortles. Hurns' touchdown came against second-stringers on an 11-yard pass from Bortles in the third quarter. He's now up to 13 receptions for 230 yards and a touchdown through three preseason games. Hurns is a candidate to start Week 1 over Lee or Cecil Shorts. He's worth a look as a late-round flier.

The Jaguars' coaching staff remains high on undrafted WR Allen Hurns.

WRs coach Jerry Sullivan talked up Hurns following spring practices, and it's carried over camp. With so many injuries at receiver, Hurns has been getting plenty of opportunities. He's caught 6-of-9 targets for 117 yards through two preseason games and has shown good chemistry with Blake Bortles. Hurns is a player to keep a distant eye on in deeper Dynasty leagues.

Jaguars WRs coach Jerry Sullivan is high on UDFA Allen Hurns.

"I like the kid," Sullivan said. "I think he has some natural instincts. He has a chance to help us." Hurns drew praise this spring and has a chance to stick at the bottom of the Jags' depth chart. At 6-foot-1 and 195 pounds, Hurns ran a 4.54 forty at February's Combine. He's unlikely to contribute much on offense.
Jul 13 - 11:56 AM

Miami (FL) UDFA WR Allen Hurns signed with the Jaguars due to his familiarity with OC Jedd Fisch, the Hurricanes' old offensive coordinator.

As did Miami (FL) QB Stephen Morris. Hurns (6-foot-1 1/4, 198) made 26 starts for the 'Canes, racking up 121 career catches for 1,891 yards (15.6 YPR) and 14 touchdowns. He was a second-team All-ACC selection as a senior. Hurns ran 4.55 at the Combine with an underwhelming 31-inch vertical and 10-foot broad jump. A lightweight college deep threat who lacks ideal long speed and physicality to his game, Hurns would do well to become a contributing NFL wideout. The odds are ultimately against it.
