  • John Hurst: Gets settlement

    Hurst (ankle) was waived from IR with an injury settlement Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of ProFootballNetwork.com reports.

    Hurst signed a one-year contract with the Colts on July 26 then suffered the ankle injury in practice last Tuesday. The 25-year-old spent the majority of last season on the Buccaneers' practice squad and has yet to make his NFL regular season debut. Once healthy, Hurst will work for an opportunity elsewhere.

  • Colts' John Hurst: Signs with Colts

    The Colts signed Hurst to a one-year contract Tuesday, Doug Kyed of Pro Football Focus reports.

    Hurst spent time on Tampa Bay's practice squad last year, but he was not elevated to the active roster.

Hurst attended Division II West Georgia and caught 40 passes for 654 yards and seven touchdowns during his senior season. He's a long shot to win a role in Indy's deep receiving corps.

    The Chargers activated Hurst (undisclosed) from the PUP list on Tuesday, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports.

  • Chargers' John Hurst: Hits PUP list

    The Chargers placed Hurst (undisclosed) on the PUP list Tuesday, Jeff Miller of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    The reason behind Hurst's placement on the list is unclear, but it will prevent the second-year wideout from getting a chance to make an early impression in training camp. When he's cleared to participate, Hurst will likely need to make a big splash in a short timeframe in order to claim a 53-man roster spot.

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

    Hurst made the Buccaneers team out of training camp but started the year on IR with an ankle injury.

  • Buccaneers' John Hurst: Activated off IR

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

    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.

  • Buccaneers' 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.

    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.

  • Buccaneers' 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.
