News: Shorts (hamstring) will be sidelined for at least the first two weeks of training camp with a grade two hamstring sprain, the Florida Times-Union reports. Impact: Coming off of a down 2013 campaign, Shorts tweaked his hamstring at the beginning of training camp Friday. While he'll likely be a tad behind in terms of timing, he's easily the Jags' most experienced receiver and is in no real danger of losing his starting spot. However, with two young, second-round receivers behind him in Marqise Lee and Allen Robinson, Shorts may be challenged more than in years past.(RotoWire, )

News: Shorts III will miss at least two weeks with a strained right hamstring. Shorts got the diagnosis Saturday, one day after feeling tightness in his hamstring during the team's first training camp practice. Impact: Shorts, who has a history of injuries, says he "can't catch a break right now. My frustration level might be at an all-time high." The fourth-year pro missed most of organized team activities with a calf injury and hasn't made it through a full season since college. He missed six games with a hamstring injury in 2011, missed two games because of a concussion in 2012 and sat out the final three games in 2013 with a groin injury that slowed him all season.(STATS, 12:52pm)

News: Shorts (hamstring) is expected to miss the first few weeks of training camp, Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union reports. Impact: After dealing with various injuries the past two seasons, Shorts tweaked his hamstring at the very beginning of training camp. While the issue isn't considered to be all that serious, the fourth-year wideout enters 2014 with a number of concerns. Not only is he stuck in what figures to be a poor offense, but Shorts is coming off a disappointing campaign, while the Jaguars drafted both Allen Robinson and Marqise Lee in the second round of May's draft. Having said all that, Shorts has shown impressive big-play ability at times, and he's easily the Jaguars' most experienced wide receiver.(RotoWire, )

News: Shorts, who suffered a hamstring injury Friday, is not at Saturday's practice, John Oehser of Jaguars.com reports. Impact: While there's no indication that the injury is serious, it will keep Shorts sidelined for at least one practice. With his promising 2012 followed by a disappointing 2013, Shorts will presumably have competition for targets in the form of 2014 second-round draft picks Allen Robinson and Marqise Lee.(RotoWire, )

News: Shorts left the team's first training camp practice with a tight hamstring. Coach Gus Bradley says trainers pulled Shorts for precautionary reasons late in Friday's two-hour workout. Impact: It's the latest injury issue for Shorts, who missed most of organized team activities with a calf injury and hasn't made it through a full season in three years. He missed six games with a hamstring injury in 2011, missed two games because of a concussion in 2012 and sat out the final three games in 2013 with a groin injury that slowed him all season.

News: Shorts left Friday's practice with a hamstring injury, John Oehser of Jaguars.com reports. Impact: Although the ailment caused an early exit for Shorts, Hays Carlyon of the Florida Times-Union later reported that the wideout was walking around without a wrap or ice. Just like last week's calf tightness, it doesn't sound like the current hamstring issue is something to be overly concerned about moving forward.(RotoWire, )
