Let go by Dolphins

Hurns (wrist) has been released by the Dolphins with a failed physical designation.

Analysis: Hurns, who opted out of the 2020 season, also missed missed the 2021 campaign after undergoing wrist surgery in August. If the 30-year-old can re-prove his health in the coming months, the wideout could catch on with another team and compete for a roster spot in that context, but for now Hurns is off the fantasy radar.

Returns to IR

Hurns (wrist) was shifted back to IR after being activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday, Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports.

Analysis: Hurns suffered a wrist injury that required surgery in August and was ruled out for the season. Now cleared from COVID protocols, Hurns can return to the Dolphins' facilities to prepare for a return in 2022.

Placed on COVID-19 list

The Dolphins placed Hurns (wrist/undisclosed) on the reserve/COVID-19 list Sunday.

Analysis: Hurns has been on injured reserve since mid-August after he underwent wrist surgery, but he'll now need to isolate from the team. Once the receiver is activated from the COVID-19 list, he'll revert to IR.

Set to miss three months

Hurns requires surgery to address a wrist injury and is expected to miss three months, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Analysis: Hurns missed Saturday's preseason contest against the Bears, and now the full severity of his injury has been disclosed. The 29-year-old was already facing tough competition for a depth role in Miami's wide receiver room, and his three-month injury could now result in the team leaving him out of future plans on offense. Expect Hurns to be placed on injured reserve in the coming days, and for the likes of Robert Foster, Isaiah Ford, Malcolm Perry and Kirk Merritt to see a slight uptick in camp opportunities.

Likely out Saturday

Hurns is not expected to play Saturday against the Bears.

Analysis: Hurns isn't listed with any sort of injury, but it's possible a reason for the veteran wide receiver's absence will be revealed post game. The 29-year-old is likely on the fringes of the roster bubble in a heated battle with Robert Foster, Mack Hollins and Malcolm Perry for one of the final WR roster spots.

Returns for offseason program

Hurns participated in Miami's offseason program.

Analysis: Hurns took the COVID-19 opt out last year, tolling the final years of his contract to 2021-22. The deal includes a $1.25 million guarantee on his $1.875 million base salary this season, so the Dolphins won't have much financial/cap incentive to release him this summer. However, the team does have tough competition for roster spots at wide receiver behind likely starters DeVante Parker, Will Fuller and Jaylen Waddle. In addition to Hurns and fellow 2020 opt out Albert Wilson, the team has Preston Williams (foot), Lynn Bowden, Jakeem Grant and Mack Hollins competing for depth roles.

Opts out of season

Hurns has elected to opt out of the 2020 season, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Analysis: In a statementvia Twitter, Hurns noted that he made the decision with what's best for his family in mind. The 28-year-old hauled in 32 passes for 416 yards and two TDs in 14 games with the Dolphins last season. With Hurns having opted out, DeVante Parker, Preston Williams and Albert Wilson currently top the team's wideout depth chart.

Likely headed for depth role

Hurns projects for a backup role in 2020, Armando Salguero of The Miami Herald reports.

Analysis: Hurns opened last season in a part-time role and elevated to the No. 2 receiver job after Preston Williams suffered an ACL tear in Week 9. The 28-year-old had an efficient season with a 68.1 percent catch rate and 8.9 yards per target, but he never topped five catches or 68 yards in any one game, ultimately catching 32 passes on 522 offensive snaps. Given that he signed a two-year extension in November, Hurns figures to keep his roster spot in 2020, though the extent of his role may depend on Williams' recovery. The Dolphins might also consider using Hurns in the slot, especially if Albert Wilson becomes a cap casualty. Hurns' experience playing both inside and outside makes him useful as a No. 4 receiver, capable of filling in at any of the WR spots. He should be fully recovered from the ankle and neck injuries that caused him to miss Week 17 last season.

Sitting in Week 17

Hurns (ankle/neck) is inactive for Sunday's Week 17 tilt against the Patriots.

Analysis: The young veteran headed into the weekend with a legitimate questionable tag, but he apparently didn't show enough in pregame warmups to warrant active status. Hurns signed a contract extension with the Dolphins earlier this season and finished the campaign with a 32-416-2 line on 47 targets, stepping up his play in the second half of the season. His absence Sunday could lead to an uptick in snaps and targets for isaiah Ford and Albert Wilson.

Takes questionable tag into finale

Hurns (ankle/neck) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Patriots, Hal Habib of The Palm Beach Post reports.

Analysis: Hurns was listed as a limited participant in practice throughout the week, preventing him from earning clearance in advance of the season finale. In the event the 28-year-old ultimately avoids the inactive list, he should see a fair amount of snaps in a four-man receiver rotation that also includes DeVante Parker, Albert Wilson and Isaiah Ford.

Dec 27, 2019 12:00 PM EST


Limited in practice Thursday

Hurns (ankle/neck) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

Analysis: Hurns has logged back-to-back limited practice sessions. The 28-year-old will likely manage to play through his injuries during Sunday's regular-season finale against the Patriots, in which case he'll play his usual role as Miami's No.3 wideout.

Dec 26, 2019 1:04 PM EST


Limited to begin week

Hurns (ankle/neck) was a limited participant in Wednesday's estimated practice, Safid Deen of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

Analysis: Hurns was forced out of Week 16's win over the Bengals due to a shoulder issue, and he's now nursing ankle and neck injuries. Still, there's not yet any reason to worry that the 28-year-old is in danger of missing Sunday's divisional contest against the Patriots.

Dec 25, 2019 3:04 PM EST


Shoulder issue

Hurns left Sunday's game against the Bengals after suffering a shoulder injury.

Analysis: Prior to his exit from the contest, Hurns caught both of his targets for 41 yards. In his absence, Isaiah Ford could see some added opportunities in the Miami passing offense.

Dec 22, 2019 12:41 PM EST


Cleared to play Sunday

Hurns (ankle/knee) doesn't carry an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Bengals after practicing in a limited fashion this week.

Analysis: Hurns is thus in line to see work in three-receiver sets alongside DeVante Parker and Albert Wilson, but he's tough to trust in Week 16 fantasy lineups after seeing just one target (which resulted in a nine-yard catch) in last Sunday's loss to the Giants,

Dec 20, 2019 3:01 PM EST


Limited Wednesday

Hurns was limited in Wednesday's practice due to an ankle injury, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

Analysis: Hurns was held out of last Wednesday's practice due to ankle and knee injuries, but he managed to suit up without any issues Week 15. The 28-year-old appears on track for Sunday's tilt against the Bengals, in which case he'll suit up as the No. 3 wideout behind DeVante Parker (hip) and Albert Wilson (hip).

Dec 18, 2019 1:53 PM EST


Held to one catch

Hurns caught his only target for nine yards during Sunday's 36-20 loss to the Giants.

Analysis: Hurns is operating behind DeVante Parker, Albert Wilson and Mike Gesicki in the pecking order of Miami's aerial attack, with running back Patrick Laird also demanding a larger target share. Without high enough upside to balance out his low floor, Hurns doesn't warrant fantasy consideration outside the deepest of leagues.

Dec 16, 2019 8:56 AM EST


Suiting up versus Giants

Hurns (ankle/knee) does not carry an injury designation for Sunday's tilt against the Giants, Hal Habib of The Palm Beach Post reports.

Analysis: Hurns was unable to practice Wednesday due to ankle and knee injuries, but he's now logged two consecutive full practices and looks back to full health. With DeVante Parker and Albert Wilson still in the concussion protocol, but making progress, Hurns could play a lead role in Miami's receiver corps Sunday in New York.

Dec 13, 2019 12:27 PM EST


Practicing without limitations

Hurns (ankle/knee) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Hurns didn't practice Wednesday while nursing ankle and knee injuries, but he now appears back to full health. With DeVante Parker and Albert Wilson both still in the concussion protocol and limited in practice, Hurns could be called upon to step into an every-down role on offense during Sunday's tilt against the Giants.

Dec 12, 2019 12:45 PM EST


Back at practice

Hurns (ankle/knee) is participating in Thursday's practice, Safid Deen of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

Analysis: Hurns was held out of Wednesday's practice due to ankle and knee injuries, so even if he ends up listed as "limited" on Thursday's practice report it'll represent a step in the right direction. If the 28-year-old is able to get healthy in time for Sunday's tilt against the Giants, he could be in line for a lead role in Miami's receiving corps with DeVante Parker and Albert Wilson both still in the concussion protocol.

Dec 12, 2019 8:54 AM EST


Non-participant Wednesday

Hurns (ankle/knee) did not practice Wednesday.

Analysis: Hurns appears to have sustained ankle and knee injuries during Week 14's divisional loss against the Jets, during which he hauled in five of eight targets for a season-high 68 yards. With DeVante Parker (concussion) and Albert Wilson (concussion) both limited in practice Wednesday, Miami's only healthy wide receivers to begin the week are Isaiah Ford, Mack Hollins and Trevor Davis.
