Jacksonville wide receiver Cecil Shorts will likely be a game-time decision whether he'll play Sunday in the Jaguars' home game against the San Diego Chargers.

Shorts sprained the joint connecting the breastbone and collarbone Sunday at Denver and did not return. Jaguars coach Gus Bradley said Shorts practiced on a limited basis Thursday, but may be held out Friday as a precaution.

''That might be one of those things where we work him out Sunday before the game before we get the final OK on him,'' Bradley said.

Shorts leads the Jaguars in receiving with 31 receptions for 411 yards. Bradley also said Justin Blackmon, who has 19 catches for 326 yards in the last two weeks since returning from a four-game suspension, might also be held out of practice on Friday, but indicated he would likely play Sunday.
