Jaguars WR Allen Hurns has core injury, will visit specialist

Monday November 16th, 2015

The Jacksonville Jaguars announced Monday that wide receiver Allen Hurns has a core injury and will visit a specialist in Philadelphia.

Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reports that Hurns has been battling the injury “for some time.” It is unclear whether Hurns will play in the team’s game against the Tennessee Titans on Thursday.

During Sunday’s game against the Baltimore Ravens, Hurns caught a touchdown, marking the seventh game a row he has scored for the Jaguars. Hurns’ streak has set a franchise record and is the best in the NFL since Dez Byrant’s seven-game run in 2012.

Hurns, 24, signed with the Jaguars as an undrafted free agent in 2014. During his time with Jacksonville he has recorded 92 receptions for 1,374 yards and 13 touchdowns.
