Recent Game Summaries
2016 Week 13 vs SD (2 / 1 / 14 / 0 rec)
Shorts was targeted on a deep ball down the right seam early in the 1st, but Winston overthrew him. Winston targeted him again on the next play, completing a crossing route for 14 yards on 3rd and 9. Shorts took a crushing hit to the knees on the play and left the game with what appears to be a dislocated knee, torn acl, torn mcl, and torn pcl. Shorts will certainly miss the rest of the season.
2016 Week 12 vs SEA (3 / 1 / 6 / 0 rec)
Winston loaded up a deep ball for Shorts down the left sideline halfway through the 2nd quarter, but Shorts was double covered and a defender batted the ball away as Shorts dove for it in the end zone. Shorts was also targeted on an overthrown deep ball in the 3rd quarter. He secured one short out route for a gain of 6 late in the end of the 2nd quarter, but was otherwise quiet for the day.
2016 Week 11 vs KC (7 / 5 / 62 / 0 rec)
Shorts had his most productive day as a Buccaneer, tying Humphries for 2nd most targets(7) behind Mike Evans(13). He secured 5 of those targets for 62 yards total. Shorts caught a deep crossing route for a gain of 19 in the 2nd quarter. He hauled in a heavily contested ball on another inside crossing route later in the 2nd for a gain of 10. Shorts got his hands on an out route at the end of the 1st half, but couldn't quite secure a ball that was overthrown by Winston.
2016 Week 10 vs CHI (5 / 2 / 38 / 0 rec)
Shorts let a pass deflect off of his hands on a crossing route in the 1st quarter, resulting in an interception. He secured his 2nd target on a deep post route in the 2nd quarter for a gain of 22. Shorts caught another pass on the sideline for a gain of 16 as the Bucs drove down with 2 minutes left in the 2nd quarter. Shorts was targeted in the back of the end zone late in the 4th quarter, but Winston threw the ball too high.
2016 Week 9 vs ATL (4 / 1 / 20 / 0 rec)
With Vincent Jackson and Russell Shepard out, Shorts manned the outside receiver spot opposite Mike Evans. Shorts caught 1 of his 3 targets for the day, converting 4th and 16 late in the 4th quarter with a deep comeback route for a 20 yard gain.
2016 Week 2 vs ARI (2 / 1 / 12 / 0 rec)
Shorts returned kicks and worked his way into the receiver rotation in the 2nd half. His lone reception was a beautiful one-handed snag on a crossing route in the 3rd quarter. Winston overthrew him a bit, but he hauled the high pass down with his left hand for a 12 yard gain.
2016 Week 1 vs ATL (0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
