JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Jacksonville Jaguars coach Gus Bradley admitted he made a mistake in the season opener against the Philadelphia Eagles by not calling timeout when his defense clearly wasn't ready on a fourth-down play.
But he had no second thoughts about what happened at the end of Sunday's 41-10 loss at Washington, when rookie receiver Allen Hurns suffered an ankle injury on the team's final offensive snap. Quarterback Chad Henne threw a sideline pass to Hurns for 3 yards on fourth-and-16 and Hurns was hurt when he was tackled.
Bradley said he didn't consider just running the ball to kill the clock and end the game quickly when the Jaguars took over with 1:46 remaining.
"It didn't come up that way," Bradley said. "I think that the message to our team is we're going to compete every play. At the end of the game in that situation it was an unfortunate deal that took place, but that's our mindset."
Hurns is listed as day-to-day with an ankle sprain.
