Insight: Shorts has been dealing with hamstring and groin issues for most of the season and it shows in his lack of production, but he now appears able to start Sunday.

Description: Jaguars receiver Cecil Shorts had 40 yards on Sunday.

10/26/2014 7:15:00 PM
Description: Jaguars receiver Cecil Shorts had 41 yards on Sunday.

Description: Jaguars top receiver Cecil Shorts (hamstring) was on the sidelines, not practicing Friday, according to jaguars.com writer John Oehser.

Description: Jaguars top receiver Cecil Shorts was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, according to Jaguars beat writer Mark Long.

Insight: Shorts didn't make the trip to Philadelphia. With Shorts gone, rookie receiver Allen Robinson missing almost all of the preseason with a hamstring injury of his own and Ace Sanders suspended, rookie Marqise Lee could be a valuable fantasy asset.
 
9/5/2014 12:03:00 PM
Description: Jaguars receiver Cecil Shorts did not practice on Thursday or Friday due to tightness in his hamstring.
Insight: Shorts missed nearly half a month with a hamstring issue in training camp, so this should have all his fantasy owners worried. Chad Henne owners too. Shorts cannot be counted on Week 1.
 
9/4/2014 4:15:00 PM
Description: Jaguars receiver Cecil Shorts did not practice on Thursday due to tightness in his hamstring according to John Oehser of jaguars.com.
Insight: Shorts missed nearly half a month with a hamstring issue in training camp, so even though head coach Gus Bradley claims the move to sit out Shorts in Thursday's practice was just precautionary, it has grabbed out attention. However, his previous hamstring injury was in his right leg. On Thursday, Shorts' left hamstring was the issue. Shorts cannot be counted on Week 1.
 
8/18/2014 12:17:00 PM
Description: Jacksonville receiver Cecil Shorts returned to practice Sunday after missing three weeks with a hamstring injury.
Insight: According to Hays Carlyon of the Florida Times-Union, he used the word "rusty" four times in describing his play. He expects to be ready for Week 1 versus Philadelphia. Shorts (66 receptions for 777 yards and 3 TDs in 13 games last season) will be the Jaguars No. 1 receiver if he can stay healthy.
