Undrafted rookie wide receiver Allen Hurns has taken advantage of the injuries that affected the Jacksonville Jaguars' receivers. The additional reps the former Miami standout took got him noticed and he has earned a longer look during training camp, writes Ken Hornack of Fox Sports Florida.
"Coming in as an undrafted free agent, you're not looking to get that many reps," Hurns said. "But when some guys go down and you get an opportunity, you've got to make the most of it."
His teammates have noticed.
"Allen Hurns had a heck of a camp," quarterback Chad Henne said. "I'm excited to see what he does in training camp once we get the pads on. He's a big, strong receiver and understands the offense ... Just a really reliable guy."
