Jacksonville Jaguars WR Cecil Shorts (hamstring) was limited in practice Wednesday, Sept. 17. His playing status for Week 3 is up in the air right now.

News you need to know

From Mark Wimer's Monday injury report (Sun Sep 14): Shorts was limited in practice on Wednesday due to his injured hamstring, and was unable to practice the rest of the week - he was inactive on Sunday after being listed as doubtful on Friday.

General News (Wed Sep 17): partially participated in Wednesday's practice.

Week 3: vs Indianapolis Colts

Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. Chad Henne got spammed for ten sacks last week, costing his team -70 yards. Tentative and surrounded with young receivers, Henne managed just 14/28 for 193 yards passing, one TD and one interception thrown while being ground into the dust. The one weapon who scored last week, Marcedes Lewis, suffered a severe high ankle sprain and was sent to IR-designated to return this week (he's out until at least Week 12 now). Aside from Lewis, the Robinsons (Allen Robinson, six targets for 4/75/0 receiving, and Denard Robinson, two for 2/14/0) were the main targets for Henne when he wasn't eating grass at Washington. The Colts' pass D ranks 28th in the NFL averaging 295.0 yards allowed per game, with four passing scores given up vs. one interception generated. The Colts are tied for 30th in the NFL with just one sack - it may be hard for them to plant Henne during this upcoming game. Last week, Nick Foles was not sacked or hit on his way to 21/37 for 331 yards passing, one TD and one interception thrown. Henne is sore this week after the debacle at Washington, but he actually has a good matchup against the weak Colts' pass D this week.

Jaguars | Cecil Shorts a limited participant (Wed Sep 17, 04:27 PM) - Jacksonville Jaguars WR Cecil Shorts (hamstring) was limited in practice Wednesday, Sept. 17.

Jaguars | Cecil Shorts could practice (Mon Sep 15, 01:17 PM) - Jacksonville Jaguars WR Cecil Shorts (hamstring) was able to run Monday, Sept. 15, and may be able to participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 17.

Our View: With rookie Allen Hurns banged up, the team needs Shorts back on the field ASAP. They won't rush him back into the lineup, but he could be good to go for Week 3.

Jaguars | Week 2 Inactives (Sun Sep 14, 11:31 AM) - The Jacksonville Jaguars have declared OT Austin Pasztor, WR Cecil Shorts, TE Clay Harbor, SS John Cyprien, OT Josh Wells, RB Storm Johnson, OG Tyler Shatley inactive for Week 2.

Jaguars | Cecil Shorts inactive (Sun Sep 14, 11:31 AM) - Jacksonville Jaguars WR Cecil Shorts (hamstring) is inactive for Week 2.

Our View: Shorts is hard to count on as being a big factor this year with this issue lingering throughout most of the offseason and now keeping him from playing in the first two games. Allen Hurns value is not going anywhere, and Marqise Lee is also looking like a hold for now. Dropping Shorts would not be an overreaction in shallow leagues.

Jaguars | Cecil Shorts will travel (Sat Sep 13, 12:32 PM) - Jacksonville Jaguars WR Cecil Shorts (hamstring) will travel with the team for their Week 2 game but is still considered doubtful for the game.

Our View: Shorts is still a long-shot to play as he only practiced once last week and in a limited fashion at that. Even if he suits up, leave him out of your lineups this week - we don't know what he is capable or how much they'd use him.
