Hayden Hurst Has Been Diagnosed with Post Traumatic Amnesia

Per an independent neurologist, Carolina tight end Hayden Hurst has been diagnosed with Post Traumatic Amnesia due to a hit he took in week 9 vs the Chicago Bears. Jerry Hurst, Hayden’s father, confirmed the diagnosis on X and added, “Slow recovery, don’t know when he’ll be back.”

Hurst has missed the last three weeks while being in the concussion protocol. On Wednesday, Hurst returned to practice in a limited capacity. Based on the severity of the injury, expect Hurst to miss this week, if not the rest of the season. Post-traumatic amnesia is when a person forgets parts of what happened before and after an injury. Carolina isn’t playing for anything and with the way the league is handling concussions, I expect the Panthers to be cautious. Hurst signed a three-year deal in the off-season with $13 million guaranteed.

While Hurst has been out we have seen a split of reps between Tommy Tremble, Ian Thomas, and Stephen Sullivan. Tremble is the one to consider in the deepest of leagues. In the three weeks Hurst has been out, Tremble has a 53% route participation with an 8% target share. Tremble was a 2021 3rd-round pick with an 85th percent burst score.
