JACKSONVILLE – Allen Hurns has been cleared to play.
Hurns, the Jaguars' second-leading receiver, was cleared from the concussion protocol Monday afternoon and said he expects to play against the Indianapolis Colts Sunday.
Hurns, who had played in all 27 of his previous NFL games, had sustained the injury against the San Diego Chargers the previous Sunday. He missed practice all three days last week, and while he made the trip to Nashville, Tennessee, he did not play in a 42-39 loss to the Tennessee Titans.
"That was tough," Hurns said. "That's probably the toughest part of it."
Hurns after sustaining the injury was taken from the field on a stretcher. He was hospitalized for precautionary reasons and released early that Sunday evening. He said he lost memory from the time of the injury until being in the ambulance.
"I've felt fine ever since Monday, but at the end of the day I can only control what I can control," Hurns said, adding, "That's part of the game. It's unfortunate things like that happen, but at the end of the day I'm feeling fine now.
"Any time I step on the field I'm not going to be thinking about that at all. I play this game with no fear."
Hurns, a second-year veteran, has caught 48 passes for 758 yards and seven touchdowns this season. The Jaguars (4-8) will play the Colts (6-6) at Everbank Field Sunday at 1 p.m.
