  • Bengals' Hayden Hurst: Joins AFC champs

    Hurst is signing a one-year contract with the Bengals, EnterSports Management reports.

    Hurst will help replace C.J. Uzomah, who signed with the Jets earlier in the week. The Bengals also have Drew Sample, a 2019 second-round pick, while Hurst himself was a 2018 first-rounder. Neither has emerged as a consistent pass-catching threat in the NFL, but Hurst has shown some flashes, including a 30-349-2 receiving line on only 39 targets in 2019 with the Ravens, followed by a 56-571-6 line on 88 targets in 2020 for the Falcons. He then dropped to 26-221-3 in 13 games last year, working behind standout rookie Kyle Pitts in a subpar offense. If nothing else, Hurst should get more red-zone looks in Cincinnati, playing with Joe Burrow, Ja'Marr Chase and Co.

  • Falcons' Hayden Hurst: Catches one pass Sunday

    Hurst caught his only pass for 33 yards during Sunday's 30-20 loss to the Saints.

    Hurst (12 snaps) returned from a one-game absence due to COVID-19 protocols and split backup duties with Patrick Hesse (11), but the former was the only one targeted in the pass game. Despite being targeted once, Hurst finished third on the team in receiving by recording the Falcons' longest offensive play of the game, setting up their first touchdown of the contest. In his second season with Atlanta, Hurst played in 13 games and recorded 26 receptions for 221 yards, the lowest totals since his rookie year in Baltimore. After coming off a career-high season (56 catches for 571 yards and six touchdowns), Hurst's fantasy upside was negatively impacted by the addition of rookie tight end Kyle Pitts, but Atlanta's whole offensive unit struggled to get going after Calvin Ridley (personal) left the team ahead of Week 8.

  • Falcons' Hayden Hurst: Back from COVID-19 list

    Hurst (illness) was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Tuesday, Tori McElhaney of the Falcons' official site reports.

    The Falcons will get two of their key pass catchers back in Hurst and wide receiver Tajae Sharpe ahead of Sunday's season finale against the Saints, after both sat out a Week 17 loss to the Bills upon testing positive for the virus. Hurst's return in particular is vital, as top tight end Kyle Pitts could be at risk of sitting out Sunday after sustaining a hamstring injury in the third quarter of last week's game. Atlanta still has Parker Hesse and Lee Smith on hand to take reps at tight end, but Hurst has consistently worked ahead of both players when healthy and represents the biggest threat in the passing game among the trio.

  • Falcons' Hayden Hurst: Won't play Week 17

    Hurst (illness) won't be available for Sunday's game against the Bills after the Falcons didn't activate him from the reserve/COVID-19 list prior to Saturday's deadline for Week 17 roster moves, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

    Hurst is one of two key Atlanta pass catchers that will remain on the list for the Week 17 contest, joining receiver Tajae Sharpe (illness). The blocking-oriented Lee Smith will serve as the top backup to starting tight end Kyle Pitts, while Sharpe's absence will likely allow Olamide Zaccheaus and Christian Blake to join Russell Gage in three-receiver sets.

  • Falcons' Hayden Hurst: Lands on COVID-19 list

    The Falcons placed Hurst on the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday after he tested positive for the virus, Scott Bair of the team's official site reports.

    Hurst is among 10 Falcons on the active roster and two more on the practice squad that have landed in COVID-19 protocols in recent days. The entire team is vaccinated, so the tight end still has a chance to test out of the protocol and make himself available for Sunday's game at Buffalo.
