Allen Hurns can’t come off the field.
Lee will eventually return, although he will miss his third game of the season Sunday when the Jaguars (1-4) host Houston (1-4).
When he does, Hurns shouldn’t lose his heavy snap count in the offense.
He’s proven to be too valuable.
Hurns leads the Jaguars in catches (27) and yards (430) this season with three touchdowns. He’s aiming to become the first Jaguars receiver to notch three consecutive 100-yard games since Jimmy Smith in 2004. Hurns is a major reason why quarterback Blake Bortles is starting to generate national attention thanks to his start of 1,299 passing yards in five games with 10 touchdowns and four interceptions.
