Hayden Hurst Visiting With Chargers

Free-agent tight end Hayden Hurst (concussion) is visiting the Los Angeles Chargers with the intention to sign with the team, according to a source. Hurst was recently released by the Carolina Panthers. The 30-year-old veteran signed a three-year, $21.75 million deal with the Panthers last offseason but missed the final eight games last year due to a serious post-traumatic amnesia concussion. There were questions as to whether Hurst would even continue his career, but he's apparently recovered and plans to continue playing in 2024. Veteran Gerald Everett is no longer in LA, but they still have Donald Parham Jr. and recently signed Will Dissly to the TE room, so Hurst would be battling for playing time with those two if he were to sign with the Chargers. Hurst, a former first-rounder (25th overall) in 2018, caught just 18 passes for 184 yards and one touchdown in Carolina last year.

Panthers Releasing Hayden Hurst

The Carolina Panthers are releasing tight end Hayden Hurst (concussion) on Tuesday after just one season with the team. Hurst missed the final eight games of the 2023 season due to a pretty serious concussion, although he's recovered now and should be ready for training camp this summer. The 30-year-old signed a three-year, $21.75 million deal with Carolina prior to last season. Before his concussion, he wasn't really a factor in what was a pretty bad Panthers offense led by rookie quarterback Bryce Young last year. Hurst caught just 18 receptions for 184 yards and a touchdown before suffering his head injury in Week 10. Fantasy managers probably won't be looking at Hurst in 12-team leagues in 2024, but depending on his health and where he lands, he could bounce back.

Hayden Hurst Clears Concussion Protocol

Carolina Panthers tight end Hayden Hurst (concussion) said he cleared the league's concussion protocol on Sunday and is looking forward to a fresh start. Hurst suffered a serious concussion in Week 10 and never played again in the 2023 season. The 30-year-old was diagnosed with post-traumatic amnesia and was eventually placed on Injured Reserve. In his nine games played in his first year in Carolina, Hurst caught only 18 passes for 184 yards and one touchdown in the worst offense in football in which rookie quarterback Bryce Young struggled mightily. He signed a three-year, $21.75 million deal last offseason, so Hurst will be back in 2024 with a new head coach and new general manager running things in Carolina. Depending on whether a new coaching staff can get more out of Young and this offense, Hurst could improve if he can stay healthy.

Hayden Hurst Going On Injured Reserve

The Carolina Panthers are placing tight end Hayden Hurst (concussion) on Injured Reserve on Friday, which will end his 2023 season. Hurst hasn't played since suffering a serious concussion in Week 10 against the Chicago Bears and was later diagnosed with post-traumatic amnesia. He had returned to practice on a limited basis last week but was not allowed to return to game action in Week 14 and has now been shut down for the rest of the year as a precaution. The 30-year-old said he didn't expect this to be a career-threatening injury, but we at least won't see Hurst until next fall. He finishes the 2023 campaign (his first in Carolina) with only 18 catches for 184 yards and one TD in nine games. Tommy Tremble (hip) and Ian Thomas (ankle) are the next men up at the position in Carolina but aren't really attractive at all in fantasy on this one-win team.

Hayden Hurst Logs DNP, Tommy Tremble Limited Thursday

Carolina Panthers tight end Hayden Hurst (concussion) was a non-participant in Thursday's practice, while teammate Tommy Tremble (hip) remained limited. Hurst was diagnosed with post-traumatic amnesia prior to Week 14's games due to the concussion that he suffered in Week 10, so the Panthers are going to want to get that completely sorted out before allowing the veteran to return to any kind of game action. We wouldn't expect Hurst to be able to play on Sunday against his former team, the Atlanta Falcons, but his status at Friday's session will provide more clarity. Tremble is nursing a hip injury but would seem to be the most likely of Carolina's TEs to suit up in Week 15, with Ian Thomas (ankle) not spotted on Thursday. Yet to surpass 25 receiving yards in any of his 12 outings, however, Tremble would be a barely-there streaming choice against a Falcons team giving up the eighth-most fantasy points per game to opposing TEs.

Hayden Hurst Not Practicing To Begin Week 15

Carolina Panthers tight end Hayden Hurst (concussion) is not practicing on Wednesday ahead of the Week 15 matchup with the Atlanta Falcons. Hurst was a limited participant in practice last week for the first time since suffering a concussion in Week 10, so his practice status being downgraded is not a good sign for his return. The veteran was diagnosed with traumatic amnesia by an independent neurologist from the hit he took in Week 10, and the Panthers are not likely to take any chances with his health. There's a chance Hurst does not play against this season. Even if he does, he won't enter the fantasy radar given the Panthers' offensive struggles.

Hayden Hurst Ruled Out For Week 14

Carolina Panthers tight end Hayden Hurst (concussion) has officially been ruled out for the Week 14 game on Sunday against the New Orleans Saints. Hurst actually returned to practice this week on a limited basis, but he was diagnosed with post-traumatic amnesia from the concussion he suffered in Week 10 and will now miss his fourth straight game. Hurst said his head injury isn't career-threatening, but this is not a matter he nor the Panthers will take lightly. Tommy Tremble (hip) missed the Week 13 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and is questionable to play this weekend, as well as Stephen Sullivan (shoulder), so the Panthers could be down to Ian Thomas as their starting tight end against the Saints. Fantasy managers should continue to avoid Carolina's tight end situation.

Hayden Hurst, Tommy Tremble Limited Thursday

Carolina Panthers tight ends Hayden Hurst (concussion), Tommy Tremble (hip) and Stephen Sullivan (shoulder) were limited in Thursday's practice session. Hurst suffered a serious concussion in Week 10 that resulted in post-traumatic amnesia. It's nice to see him back on the practice field and his head injury isn't believed to be career-threatening, but we shouldn't expect Hurst to return in Week 14 against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday. Tremble did not play in the Week 13 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but he could be Carolina's top tight end this Sunday against the Saints if he gets the green light. None of the Panthers' tight ends have been realistic TE2 streamers during their one-win season. Stay away.

Hayden Hurst's Head Injury Isn't Career-Threatening

Carolina Panthers tight end Hayden Hurst (concussion) doesn't think the post-traumatic amnesia he was diagnosed with by an independent neurologist after suffering a concussion will be career-ending. "I'm doing better each day," Hurst said. "It's not going to end my career, just being cautious as I come back. Should be another week or two." Hurst appeared as a limited participant in Wednesday's practice for the first time since suffering the concussion on Nov. 9 against the Chicago Bears. The 30-year-old has been out for the last three games and is likely to miss a few more before returning. He has only 18 catches for 184 yards and one touchdown in nine games this year, putting him off the fantasy radar. With Tommy Tremble (hip) missing last week, the Panthers were down to Ian Thomas and Stephen Sullivan.

Hayden Hurst Dealing With Post Traumatic Amnesia

Jerry Hurst, the father of Carolina Panthers tight end Hayden Hurst (concussion), said that his son has been diagnosed with post traumatic amnesia by an independent neurologist from the hit he took against the Chicago Bears back on Nov. 9. "Slow recovery, don't know when he'll be back," Jerry Hurst said. It helps explain why Hurst has been out for each of the Panthers' last three games. However, he returned to a limited practice on Wednesday and could have a chance to be cleared from the league's concussion protocol in order to suit up in Week 14 against the New Orleans Saints. It's a situation the Panthers will definitely not take lightly, most likely choosing to err on the side of caution. Carolina's tight ends aren't fantasy relevant, and Hurst has only 18 receptions on 32 targets this year for 184 yards and one touchdown in nine games played.

Hayden Hurst Returns To Practice Wednesday

Carolina Panthers tight end Hayden Hurst (concussion) returned to practice in a limited fashion on Wednesday. The veteran suffered a concussion several weeks ago and has not practiced since Week 10. His participation in practice this week is a good sign for his potential return, but he will remain off the fantasy radar against the New Orleans Saints in Week 14. The Panthers offense is one of the worst units in the NFL, and Hurst was unproductive when he was healthy this season. Despite New Orleans allowing the fourth-most fantasy points per game to tight ends this season, Hurst can be left on the waiver wire.

Hayden Hurst Ruled Out, Tommy Tremble Doubtful For Week 13

Carolina Panthers tight end Hayden Hurst (concussion) has been ruled out for another game in Week 13 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Meanwhile, fellow tight end Tommy Tremble (hip) is doubtful to play on Sunday. Hurst will be missing his third straight game. With both tight ends injured, the Panthers will have to rely on a combination of Ian Thomas and Stephen Sullivan as they look to win only their second game of the season. Thomas has more experience in the NFL, but he's scored only four touchdowns in six NFL seasons and has just three receptions for 45 yards in seven games for the Panthers this year. Sullivan, meanwhile has caught seven of his eight targets for 74 yards and no scores in five games in 2023. Fantasy managers in need of a TE should look elsewhere this weekend.

Hayden Hurst Still Missing, Tommy Tremble Back At Practice

Carolina Panthers tight end Hayden Hurst (concussion) missed another day of practice on Thursday, while Tommy Tremble (hip) returned to a limited practice. Tremble was unable to practice on Wednesday. Hurst hasn't practiced since suffering a concussion in Week 10 and looks to be on his way to missing another game this Sunday when the team takes on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The 30-year-old hasn't been much of a streaming option at the tight end position in 2023 to begin with. If Tremble is unable to play in Week 13, Carolina would be down to Ian Thomas and Stephen Sullivan at the position. Fantasy managers would be wise to avoid the tight end position for the Panthers, even with six teams on bye in Week 13. Tremble does have three touchdowns in 11 games this year, but he's done it on only 13 receptions for 84 yards.

Hayden Hurst Remains Out Of Practice

Carolina Panthers tight end Hayden Hurst (concussion) missed the Week 12 game against the Tennessee Titans while in concussion protocol. The veteran seems to be dealing with a significant concussion stemming from Week 11 because he is still not practicing on Wednesday ahead of Week 13. Carolina is slated to face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday. The Buccaneers' defense has been strong against fantasy tight ends so all Panthers' tight ends will be off the fantasy radar.

Nov 29, 2023 3:00 PM EST


Hayden Hurts Ruled Out For Week 12

Carolina Panthers tight end Hayden Hurst (concussion) has been ruled out again for the Week 12 game against the Tennessee Titans on Sunday. It will be the second straight game that Hurst will miss after suffering a concussion in Week 10 on Thursday night against the Chicago Bears. The 30-year-old veteran hasn't really been on the fantasy radar at all in his first year in Carolina in 2023, as he has only 18 receptions for 184 yards and one touchdown in nine games played this year. Tommy Tremble played most of the offensive snaps for the Panthers last week with Hurst out and caught just one of his three targets in the blowout loss to the Dallas Cowboys, but his one catch went for a touchdown. Tremble will be a touchdown-dependent, low-end TE2 play in deeper leagues.

Nov 24, 2023 12:49 PM EST


Hayden Hurst Logs DNP To Begin Week 12

Carolina Panthers tight end Hayden Hurst (concussion) did not play against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 11 because he was in concussion protocol. The veteran did not practice on Wednesday ahead of the Week 12 matchup with the Tennessee Titans. It's too early to tell if he'll be out on Sunday, but practice reports and injury updates later in the week will give us more clarity. However, Hurst is not on the fantasy radar after posting just 18 receptions for 184 yards and one touchdown through his first nine games as a Panther. The Titans have surrendered the second-fewest fantasy points per game to tight ends this season, so all Carolina tight ends should be benched or remain on the waiver wire this week.

Nov 22, 2023 3:01 PM EST


Hayden Hurst Ruled Out For Week 11

Carolina Panthers tight end Hayden Hurst (concussion) has officially been ruled out for the Week 11 game against the Dallas Cowboys after suffering a concussion in last Thursday night's loss to the Chicago Bears. Hurst has been a non-factor for fantasy managers in his first year in Carolina in an offense that has mostly struggled with rookie quarterback Bryce Young leading the charge. The 30-year-old tight end has only 18 catches for 184 yards and one touchdown in nine games played. With Hurst now officially out, Tommy Tremble will see a boost in playing time and targets and could be worth a shot as a touchdown-dependent TE2 streamer this weekend.

Nov 17, 2023 12:41 PM EST


Hayden Hurst Not Seen At Thursday's Practice

Carolina Panthers tight end Hayden Hurst (concussion) did not practice on Thursday. That makes two consecutive DNPs for Hurst with a concussion, which doesn't exactly spell optimism for his chances of playing on Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys. The 30-year-old veteran will need to log some form of activity on Friday if he wants much of a chance of being active in Week 11, but he also needs to pass concussion protocol to gain clearance. More would be asked of Tommy Tremble if Hurst is ultimately inactive, but Ian Thomas (calf) could also work his way back from injured reserve. Even with Stephen Sullivan (shoulder) not practicing, this is a shy-away spot for fantasy purposes with a struggling Bryce Young at the helm and a midseason shift in play-calling duties for Carolina.

Nov 17, 2023 12:44 AM EST


Hayden Hurst Remains In Concussion Protocol

Carolina Panthers tight end Hayden Hurst (concussion) is in the NFL's concussion protocol and therefore did not practice on Wednesday. The fact that Hurst sustained the concussion in a Week 10 loss to the Bears would make him a long shot to suit up in Week 11 against the Cowboys. The Panthers played the Bears on a Thursday but even with the extra few days of rest, it's rare for a player to play the week following a concussion. Tommy Tremble would benefit the most if Hurst were to sit out in Week 11 but Ian Thomas (calf) has also been designated to return from IR. Either way, the Panthers have one of the worst offenses in the league, and whichever tight ends up playing on Sunday has little to no fantasy value.

Hayden Hurst In The Concussion Protocol

Carolina Panthers tight end Hayden Hurst (concussion) is in the league's concussion protocol and is unlikely to be active in Week 11 against the Dallas Cowboys, according to a league source. The good news is that the Panthers could be getting Ian Thomas (calf) back from Injured Reserve this weekend, but the 30-year-old Hurst suffered a concussion in last Thursday's loss to the Chicago Bears and will likely need to miss at least one game. Hurst hasn't done much for fantasy managers in 2023 in his first year in Carolina, catching 18 of 32 targets for 184 yards and one touchdown in nine games played. He should stay on the waiver wire in 12-team leagues for now. If Hurst is inactive this weekend and Thomas remains on IR, Tommy Tremble will have an expanded pass-catching role at the tight end position in Carolina.
