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.

Description: Jaguars receiver Cecil Shorts did not practice on Thursday due to tightness in his hamstring according to John Oehser of jaguars.com.
