It has been confirmed that wide receiver Allen Hurns suffered a concussion on Saturday at Kansas State. For Hurns, this is the second concussion that he has sustained within a month, leaving him out indefinitely.
During Miami’s first drive against the Wildcats, Hurns went over the middle catching a 22-yard pass from QB Stephen Morris. “It was definitely tough to see him go down,” said Morris. “Me and Allen go way back, so it was really hard to see him go out of the game. We just needed the next man to step up.”
After what appeared to be a routine catch and tackle, Hurns remained on the ground following the catch while trainers attended to him. According to sources, Hurns was said to be disoriented while on the sidelines as well as in the locker room.
Hurns first concussion came during the Miami’s fall camp. The number of concussions that Hurns has endured raise a level of concern from coaches. He missed his first spring due to knee surgery and has been plagued with a nagging shoulder injury.
Hurns is currently Miami’s leading receiver with ten receptions for 113 yards.
Following Hurns’ departure, WR Rashawn Scott became the primary target for QB Stephen Morris. Scott caught four passes for 39 yards.
