News: Shorts indicated that he is "week-to-week" with his hamstring injury, according to Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union. Impact: With Marqise Lee also expected to be out for Sunday's game against the Steelers, look for Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns to head the Jaguars' Week 5 wideout corps.(RotoWire, )

News: Shorts (hamstring) isn't expected to play in Sunday's game against the Steelers. Impact: Shorts suffered a muscle strain near his left hamstring Sunday, and it looks like he'll consequently return to the Jaguars' absentee list this week. In a concerning trend for the Jaguars' No. 1 receiver, he's already missed two games this season, and his latest injury is his fourth since June. With Shorts likely unavailable for Sunday's game against the Steelers, Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns (ankle) figure to benefit from expanded roles, while rookie Marqise Lee faces his own hamstring issue to overcome before being of use to owners.(RotoWire, )

News: The Jacksonville Jaguars don't expect to have receiver Cecil Shorts III available Sunday against Pittsburgh. Impact: Coach Gus Bradley all but ruled Shorts out Monday, a day after the fourth-year pro tweaked a muscle near his left hamstring in a 33-14 loss at San Diego. Shorts missed the first two games of the season with a strained left hamstring. He started the last two, catching seven passes for 60 yards and a touchdown. (STATS, 3:30pm)
Mon. Sep 29, 2014
News: Shorts will undergo diagnostic testing Monday to determine the extent of the left hamstring injury he suffered Sunday, The Florida Times-Union reports. Impact: Shorts reportedly felt a pull in his left hamstring Sunday, which marked his fourth injury since June. With testing slated for Monday, more information regarding his condition should be forthcoming. Nonetheless, the Jaguars' No. 1 wideout could be facing yet another sideline spell, which would stand to benefit the fantasy values of players like Marqise Lee (hamstring), Allen Robinson, and Allen Hurns (ankle).(RotoWire, )
Sep 28, 2014
News: Shorts left Sunday's game against the Chargers with a hamstring injury, John Oehser of jaguars.com reports. Impact: Prior to his exit, Shorts recorded two caches on four targets for 25 yards. Allen Hurns figures to see added looks Sunday, as a result of Shorts' injury.(RotoWire, )
Mon. Sep 22, 2014
News: After missing the first two games, Shorts had five catches for 35 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 44-17 loss to Indianapolis. Impact: Shorts was targeted 10 times, and he should be a reliable WR3 going forward.(STATS, 3:18pm)
Sep 21, 2014
News: Shorts (hamstring) made his season debut Sunday, catching five passes for 35 yards and a touchdown. Impact: Shorts tied for a team-high with 10 targets and caught a 10-yard touchdown late in the fourth quarter from Blake Bortles, who entered the game in relief of starter Chad Henne. Shorts is clearly the Jaguars' top receiver, but the team's less-than-stellar quarterback play restricts his value on a week-to-week basis. Bortles, who will start Week 4, should provide a spark to an otherwise-stagnant offense, but he still lacks experience, as evidenced by the pair of picks he threw Sunday.(RotoWire, )
Sep 21, 2014
News: Shorts (hamstring) is listed as active and starting Sunday's game against the Colts. Impact: In his return to action, Shorts should see his share of looks while starting, assuming no injury setbacks, though until he turns in a full and productive game, he's a speculative play with Chad Henne at QB for the Jags.(RotoWire, )
Fri. Sep 19, 2014
News: Shorts (hamstring) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Colts, John Oehser of Jaguars.com reports. Impact: As is fellow wideout Allen Hurns, with the duo likely in line to head the Jags' Week 3 wideout corps along with Allen Robinson, given that Marqise Lee won't play this weekend. Per Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union, Shorts expects to see full-time duty in his his return, though until the wideout turns in a full and productive game, he'll be a speculative play.(RotoWire, )
Thu. Sep 18, 2014
News: Shorts (hamstring) was limited at practice Thursday, Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union reports. Impact: That said, coach Gus Bradley indicated that Shorts continues to look good at practice, a well-timed development, considering that Marqise Lee is out this week and Allen Hurns is iffy.(RotoWire, )
Wed. Sep 17, 2014
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, )
Fri. Sep 12, 2014
News: Shorts was limited in practice Wednesday but expects to play against Indianapolis. Impact: The receiver has missed the first two games with an ailing hamstring. It marks the fourth consecutive year that he's missed at least two regular-season games because of an injury.(STATS, 2:21pm)
