News: Shorts (hamstring) was limited at practice Wednesday, John Oehser of Jaguars.com reports. Impact: Shorts was unable to practice either Thursday or Friday last week, so his limited participation Wednesday bodes well for his Week 3 status, especially with coach Gus Bradley noting that Shorts looked good during Wednesday's session.(RotoWire, )

News: Shorts (hamstring) could practice Wednesday, John Oehser of Jaguars.com reports. Impact: Shorts has missed both of the Jaguars' games this season while recovering from a hamstring injury. However, since he's able to run, he could return to practice Wednesday, which would bode well for his chances of playing in Week 3. Whenever he's back healthy, Shorts figures to be the Jaguars' No. 1 wideout. Expect his status to be updated as the week unfolds.(RotoWire, )

Impact: Coach Gus Bradley has yet to rule Shorts out for the contest, indicating that the wideout will travel to Washington this weekend with the team.

Impact: While things could look up if Shorts if he is able to practice in some capacity Friday, the wideout's Week 2 status looks cloudy. Meanwhile, fellow starting wideout Marqise Lee practiced fully Thursday, with Allen Hurns a candidate to see expanded duties once again on Sunday against Washington, should Shorts end up being sidelined.(RotoWire, )

News: Shorts (hamstring) indicated that he won't practice Thursday, Hays Carlyon of the Florida Times-Union reports.

News: Shorts (hamstring) will try to run Tuesday, John Oehser of Jaguars.com reports. Impact: How that goes should help determine what, if anything, the wideout will do at practice in the coming days, with Shorts' Week 2 status thus still murky.

Fri. Sep 5, 2014
News: Shorts (hamstring), who was officially a limited participant at Friday's practice, is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Eagles, the Jaguars' official site reports. Impact: Meanwhile, ESPN.com notes that coach Gus Bradley indicated that the Jags will evaluate the wideout on Saturday and Sunday before a determination is made on Shorts' status for Sunday's 1:00 ET kickoff. If Shorts is out or limited at all this weekend, Marqise Lee would presumably be the upside play among Jags' wideouts in Week 1, while Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns could also be in line for added looks.(RotoWire, )
Fri. Sep 5, 2014
News: Though Shorts (hamstring) participated in Friday morning's walk-through, the Florida Times-Union reports that the wideout is not practicing.

Fri. Sep 5, 2014
News: Shorts (hamstring) participated in Friday morning's walkthrough, but did not practice in full, Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union reports. Impact: Shorts was limited Thursday due to a left hamstring issue, and it looks like the Jaguars will continue to take a conservative approach. If he had been able to participate more during Friday's practice, we'd feel a lot more confident about his prospects of suiting up Sunday, but for now, his status remains cloudy. Check back on his status prior to Sunday's game, and if he's unable to go, look for Marquise Lee, Allen Robinson (hamstring) and Allen Hurns to see increased targets.(RotoWire, )
Thu. Sep 4, 2014
News: Shorts was held out of Thursday's practice due to tightness in his hamstring, John Oehser of jaguars.com reports. Impact: On the plus side, Oehser adds that coach Gus Bradley indicated that Shorts was held out Thursday for precautionary reasons. Based on that, as long as Shorts practices in some capacity Friday, the wideout's Week 1 status does not appear to be in jeopardy.(RotoWire, )
Thu. Sep 4, 2014
News: Shorts was unable to finish practice Thursday due to left hamstring tightness, the Florida Times-Union reports. "It was more precautionary on our part," coach Gus Bradley indicated Thursday. "He just had a little bit of tightness. We were looking at possibly giving him [today] off and we said, ‘Let's go out there and see how it feels.' Then we said, ‘Let's not do it.'" Impact: The report notes that it was a right hamstring issue that slowed the wideout during the preseason, but we'll feel a lot better about Shorts' Week 1 status if he gets a good practice in on Friday. Officially, Shorts was listed as a limited practice participant Thursday. Next up in the team's wideout pecking order in the event that Shorts is limited at all this weekend are Marqise Lee, Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns.(RotoWire, )
