Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Allen Hurns has been released from the hospital after sustaining a concussion Sunday.

Hurns was taken off the field on a stretcher during the fourth quarter of the Jaguars’ game against the Chargers after landing hard against the ground while diving for an incomplete pass. Hurns was moving his arms while on the stretcher and gave a thumbs up as he was taken off the field.

Fantasy Impact:

Hurns entered Sunday with 44 catches for 716 yards and seven touchdowns. He caught four passes for 42 yards against the Charges before sustaining his injury. Bryan Walters and Marqise Lee could see more time if Hurns is unable to get back on the field by next week.

Chargers WR Malcom Floyd (shoulder, probable) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week and is probable for Week 12. Floyd should return to the lineup this week. He'll provide a deep threat.

Friday, November 27, 2015, 6:20pm

Jaguars WR Allen Hurns (thigh, foot, probable) took limited practice reps all week and is probable for Week 12. Hurns will be fine to face the Chargers.

Friday, November 27, 2015, 6:20pm

Chargers TE Antonio Gates (hip, probable) took full practice reps again Friday and is probable for Week 12. Notice that Gates is no longer listed with a knee injury. He should see plenty of targets against the Jaguars. The Chargers are likely to have trouble running the ball on the Jags.

Friday, November 27, 2015, 6:20pm

Chargers TE Ladarius Green (ankle, probable) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week and is probable for Week 12. Green could see starter's snaps if the team plays a lot of two-TE sets with Keenan Allen sidelined.

Kansas City Chiefs running back Charcandrick West left Sunday’s 33–3 win over the San Diego Chargers in the second half with a hamstring injury and did not return. He is day-to-day, head coach Andy Reid said.

Shortly after a one-yard reception on third down with 11:23 to go in the third quarter, West was seen being looked at on the sidelines. He left with 16 yards rushing and 48 receiving.

Fantasy Impact:

West was replaced by Spencer Ware, who carried the ball 11 times for 96 yards and two touchdowns. West had rushed for a touchdown in each game since replacing injured running back Jamaal Charles as the starter in Week 7.

Antonio Gates, Ladarius Green ACTIVE vs. Chiefs

Tyreek Burwell T
Kavell Conner LB

Malcom Floyd WR
Cordarro Law LB
Adrian Phillips CB
Damion Square DE

Fantasy Impact:

Both Antonio Gates and Ladarius Green are active at TE for the Bolts. Gates was dealing with knee and hip injuries and Green an ankle. Both should be involved in the offense given the injuries at WR, but Gates is still a higher-ranked fantasy play at the position and a favorite red zone target for QB Philip Rivers.

The first time Tyrell Williams played this season, he played nine snaps, all on special teams, running down kickoffs and punts in coverage.

This second time, he has the chance to flash his ability on offense.

Wide receiver Malcom Floyd believes in it.

"He's sort of a mirror image of me but younger and fresher," Floyd, 34, said. "He's a speedster. He's out there, running 21 miles per hour. ... I think he's going to be better (than me). He's got a head start. He's healthy. He's durable. We might have the same stats or not, a 40-plus inch vertical, 4.4 speed, but I think there's a tremendous upside with him compared to me. He has a head start. He didn't get hampered by any early injuries or anything like that."

Fantasy Impact:

The Chargers are promoting Williams from their practice squad, a source said Saturday morning. He'll be one of four wide receivers active Sunday against the Chiefs; Stevie Johnson, Dontrelle Inman and Javontee Herndon are the others. Herndon and Williams are playing their second career game. They have a 12-yard catch between them.

Friday, November 20, 2015, 6:29pm

Chargers WR Malcom Floyd (shoulder, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 11. Floyd will reportedly attempt to play through the injury, but he won’t be able to do so this week. Stevie Johnson, Dontrelle Inman and Javontee Herndon are the top three receivers on the depth chart. Johnson is a fantasy WR2 while Inman holds some WR3/flex appeal.

Friday, November 20, 2015, 6:29pm

Chargers TE Antonio Gates (knee, hip, probable) returned to take limited reps Friday after missing practice Thursday and is probable for Week 11. Gates will be fine to play in Week 11, though according to beat writer Michael Gehlken, he’s dealing with a hip injury that has developed as he has attempted to compensate for his knee. His role will increase with Keenan Allen out for the year and Malcom Floyd out for Week 11.

Friday, November 20, 2015, 6:29pm

Chargers TE Ladarius Green (ankle, questionable) returned to take limited reps Friday after missing practice earlier in the week and is questionable for Week 11. Green could potentially play heavy snaps if he can get healthy given all the issues the Chargers have in their receiving corps. The team plays late on Sunday.

Friday, November 20, 2015, 6:29pm

Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (groin, probable) took full practice reps all week and is probable for Week 11. Kelce should be fine for a nice matchup with the Chargers. Alex Smith may have to funnel targets his way if Jeremy Maclin has trouble with shutdown CB Jason Verrett.

Thursday, November 19, 2015, 5:53pm

Chargers WR Malcom Floyd (shoulder) did not practice Wednesday. Floyd will reportedly attempt to play through the injury, but he’s not likely to do so this week. For now, we’re assuming he’s out. Stevie Johnson, Dontrelle Inman and Javontee Herndon are the top three receivers on the depth chart.

Thursday, November 19, 2015, 5:53pm

Chargers TE Antonio Gates (knee) took limited practice reps Wednesday. Gates should be fine to play in Week 11, though according to beat writer Michael Gehlken, he’s dealing with a hip injury that has developed as he has attempted to compensate for his knee. His role will increase with Keenan Allen out for the year and Malcom Floyd potentially out for Week 11.

Thursday, November 19, 2015, 5:53pm

Chargers TE Ladarius Green (ankle) did not practice Wednesday. Coming out of a bye, it’s not a good sign that Green isn’t yet ready to practice. He’s reportedly “getting closer,” but it’s not looking good for Sunday.
