Jacksonville Jaguars WR Cecil Shorts (illness) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 26.

News you need to know

From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Nov 24): Let's all agree to not trust any Jaguar wide receivers no matter how clear their path to targets is in this offensive offense.

General News (Thu Nov 27): practiced fully on Thursday.

General News (Wed Nov 26): did not practice on Wednesday (due to illness).

Week 13: vs New York Giants

Mark and Joe say: Neutral matchup. Blake Bortles has struggled over his last two games, with 37/64 for 436 yards passing, zero TDs and two interceptions thrown against the Colts and the Cowboys - only Cecil Shorts III (10 targets for 6/125/0 receiving) has gone over 100 yards receiving during that two game span, followed by Marquise Lee (eight for 4/65/0) and Allen Robinson (10 for 5/60/0). The Jaguars' pass offense is circling the bowl entering the final month of the season, friends. The Giants' pass D averages 253.9 net passing yards allowed per game, with 19 passing scores given up vs. 13 interceptions and 19 sacks generated (tied for fifth in the NFL and 26th, respectively). Dallas blasted this group for 18/26 yielding 266 net yards, four TDs and zero interceptions last week, while San Francisco managed 15/30 for 185 net yards, one TD and zero interceptions thrown two weeks ago. Two sub-par units face off in this one - that sounds about even to us.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 10 vs DAL (7 / 5 / 119 / 0 rec)

Shorts' caught his first target and that target came down the field early on the first drive. He ran a crossing route after play action to set the offense up in Cowboys territory. Late in the second quarter, Shorts offered the Jaguars another big play when he adjusted well to a slant route before continuing down the sideline for a huge play. Shorts was having his most impressive game in some time. In the third quarter, he gained nine yards on a bubble screen with aggressive running down the field. Shorts wasn't heavily involved, but he was creating yards everytime he got the ball. In the fourth quarter, he found space over the middle of the field after Bortles held the ball on a bootleg action.

2014 Week 12 vs IND (3 / 1 / 6 / 0 rec)

Shorts was targeted just once before the fourth quarter, when he was well covered on a post route. His first reception came on his next target, a short curl route on Second-and-10. That proved to be his only reception of the game.
