Hurns participated in Friday’s walk-through, but has not yet been cleared from the NFL’s concussion protocol. He was cleared for limited participation in Thursday’s practice and will be examined later Friday and on Saturday.
Hurns, who suffered the concussion in the second half of last Sunday’s loss at Kansas City, said he expects to be able to play against the Texans at EverBank Field.
"I’ve been fine ever since after the game," Hurns said. "I never had any symptoms that Monday or any other day throughout this week, so I’ll be fine. It’s a slow concussion protocol."
Coach Gus Bradley wouldn’t confirm that Hurns would play on Sunday if he’s cleared on Saturday, but said there’s no concern about Hurns not being effective if he does play even though he only had a limited amount of practice reps. Hurns is officially listed as questionable on Friday’s game report.
"He’s pretty sharp on it," Bradley said. "He’s been out in the field and watching if he hasn’t been able to participate. I think there’s some different things he has to know, but he picks up on it pretty good."
Hurns leads the Jaguars in receiving yards (443) and is third in receptions (31).
Only one player has been declared out for Sunday’s game: receiver Bryan Walters (concussion).
