Shorts suffered a Grade 2 hamstring strain on Friday, July 25. He'll be out for at least two weeks. He had calf and hamstring issues in the offseason. This is the latest in a long list of Shorts injuries during his NFL career. He should be ready for Week 1 without setbacks, but this is a bad sign for his durability this year.

Summary

Cecil Shorts is having an early set back to start out the 2014 season as he has sustained a Grade 2 hamstring strain in Jaguars practice. Injury concerns have already been a big part of Shorts career and this will be another injury that could likely affect Shorts leading up the start of the season. Shorts is also entering a contract year and staying healthy and performing well are going to be his top priorities this year. The Jaguars have brought in some additional tools and weapons on offense which should help Shorts be able to have more room on the field as he won't be the only guy on the team that defenders are worried about. Shorts had 66 receptions for 777 yards and 3 touchdowns in 13 games in 2013. With the drafting of Marqise Lee and Allen Robinson early and the potential of Ace Sanders in the slot and Mike Brown as a quality 4th or 5th option, the field should be a lot more open for Cecil Shorts in 2014. He is playing in a contract year and if he can stay healthy the door is open for a 1,000+ yard season. (July 28)

Latest News

Jaguars | Cecil Shorts update (Sat Jul 26, 02:25 PM) - Updating a previous report, Jacksonville Jaguars WR Cecil Shorts (hamstring) will miss two to four weeks due to a hamstring injury.

Our View: Bad news for the Jaguars here. Shorts is their top receiver, and there is very little experience behind him. Ace Sanders has been suspended the first four games of the year, so now a pair of rookies (Allen Robinson, Marqise Lee) will be thrust into more playing time.

Jaguars | Drafted WRs as compliment to Cecil Shorts (Sat Jul 26, 02:01 AM) - Jacksonville Jaguars WR Cecil Shorts has plenty of company, but general manager Dave Caldwell indicated Shorts is a big part of the plan going forward. The team drafted WRs Marqise Lee and Allen Robinson, but Caldwell said it 'was to compliment Cecil, not replace him.'

Jaguars | Cecil Shorts exits practice (Fri Jul 25, 12:24 PM) - Jacksonville Jaguars WR Cecil Shorts (hamstring) did not finish practice Friday, July 25, because of a hamstring injury.

Our View: The Jaguars have to be a bit worried about Shorts, who missed all of minicamp and most of the OTAs with a hamstring injury. This is worth watching as the team may have to lean even more heavily on rookies Marqise Lee and Allen Robinson than they already were. Right now Shorts appears to be worth a WR4 spot, while Lee is around a WR5 and Allen a WR6. That could change a little if the injury keeps Shorts out and the team (and we) get a longer and deeper look at the rookies.
