The Jacksonville Jaguars aren't ruling out receiver Allen Hurns playing against Tennessee this week because of the concussion he suffered on Sunday, but a league source described his chances of playing as being "unlikely."
It's a realistic possibility, however, that Hurns could play a week after being taken off the field on a stretcher and hospitalized briefly as a precautionary measure. He is in the NFL's concussion program and will have to pass a series of concussion tests in order to be cleared to return to practice and play.
Jaguars receiver Bryan Walters suffered a concussion in the team's victory over Baltimore on Nov. 15, cleared the concussion protocol, and played against Tennessee four days later.
The Jaguars are off on Tuesday and resume practice on Wednesday. Hurns was sitting in front of his locker talking to teammates during Monday's open locker room period, but he is prohibited from speaking to the media while he's in the NFL's concussion program, the story said.
