John Hurst: Remaining a Charger into 2021

Hurst signed a reserve/future contract with the Chargers on Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

Analysis: Hurst linked up with Los Angeles' practice squad in mid-November, after the Buccaneers decided to part ways with the 24-year-old wideout 12 days earlier. He's still in search of his NFL debut, but Hurst will kick off the 2021 league year as a member of the Chargers organization.

The Chargers signed Hurst to the practice squad Monday, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Hurst was cut by the Buccaneers' practice squad earlier this month, and he'll get another chance in Los Angeles. The undrafted rookie out of Division II West Georgia recorded 40 receptions for 654 yards and seven scores in his senior season.

John Hurst: Dropped from practice squad

The Buccaneers cut Hurst from the practice squad Wednesday, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Hurst made the Buccaneers out of training camp but started the year on IR with an ankle injury. He was waived from the active roster before playing a game, and now he'll look for a new team entirely. Given his ability to already make one NFL team in his career, Hurst should at least be able to find a practice squad role elsewhere.

John Hurst: Lands on waivers

The Buccaneers waived Hurst on Tuesday, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

John Hurst: Activated off IR

Hurst (ankle) was activated off injured reserve Monday, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Hurst returned to practice last week and now is officially eligible to see game action Sunday against the Raiders. An undrafted rookie out of Division II West Georgia, Hurst received praise throughout training camp this summer before spraining his ankle -- which landed him on IR. With plenty of mouths to feed in the Buccaneers' offense, the rookie will more than likely serve as a special teams contributor for the time being.

John Hurst: Back at practice Tuesday

Hurst (ankle) returned to practice Tuesday, indicating the beginning of his 21-day window to be activated from IR, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

Analysis: Hurst can return to the lineup as early as Sunday's home game versus the Packers depending on how he responds to a week of practice. The undrafted rookie out of Division II West Georgia likely won't play much on offense once he's healthy, but he could vie for a spot on special teams.

John Hurst: Placed on IR

Hurst (ankle) was placed on reserve/injured Tuesday, Eduardo A. Encina of reports.

Analysis: Hurst suffered an ankle injury over a week ago and was most recently seen in a walking boot at the team facility. It appears as if the wideout's season is more than likely over.

John Hurst: Upgraded to boot

Hurst (ankle) is now sporting a boot after being in an air cast over the past week, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: The upgrade to a boot means the undrafted rookie wide receiver is one step closer to getting back on the field. However, with cuts looming this weekend, it's difficult to say if Hurst is healthy enough to earn a regular roster, or even practice squad, spot.

John Hurst: Suffers ankle injury Wednesday

Hurst suffered what appeared to be an ankle injury in Wednesday's practice, Carmen Vitali of the team's official site reports.

Analysis: The undrafted rookie will be further evaluated, but any missed practice time naturally makes his already long odds of nabbing a roster spot even steeper. Coach Bruce Arians said during media availability after Wednesday's practice that Hurst's injury was initially believed to be a sprain, and further details should be available in relatively short order.
