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 (Thu Aug 28, 10:02 PM) - Jacksonville Jaguars WR Cecil Shorts (hamstring) said he will be ready for the team's season opener.

Jaguars | Cecil Shorts expected to play in preseason game (Sun Aug 17, 11:04 PM) - Jacksonville Jaguars WR Cecil Shorts (hamstring) is expected to start in the third preseason game unless he suffers a setback during practice this week, according to head coach Gus Bradley.

Our View: Hamstring injuries are known to linger if not treated properly. Shorts has been getting time off to deal with this injury, and it will be good to see him back out on the field. His current ADP has suffered because of the injury. Shorts is coming off the board at WR50 (11.01) in 12-team PPR leagues.

Jaguars | Cecil Shorts practices (Sun Aug 17, 10:37 AM) - Jacksonville Jaguars WR Cecil Shorts (hamstring) is participating in practice Sunday, Aug. 17.

Our View: Shorts practicing is a terrific step in the right direction. If he gets on the field for the third preseason game, he becomes a good value pick in the 10th round or later.

Jaguars | Cecil Shorts, Dekoda Watson to see reps in next game (Fri Aug 15, 02:02 PM) - Jacksonville Jaguars WR Cecil Shorts (hamstring) and LB Dekoda Watson (groin) are expected to practice on a limited basis Sunday, Aug. 17, and they should both see some repetitions in the preseason game against the Detroit Lions next Friday. Watson will be activated from the Physically Unable to Perform list sometime before Sunday.

Our View: It's the dress rehearsal for the regular season aka Week 3 of the preseason. Getting Shorts back is a real boost for this offense. He's going off the board at WR48 (10.11) in 12-team PPR leagues. If he's healthy and looks good next week, that ADP could rise a bit.

Jaguars | Cecil Shorts could play in preseason game (Fri Aug 15, 01:08 PM) - Jacksonville Jaguars WR Cecil Shorts (hamstring) could play in the team's preseason game Friday, Aug. 22. Shorts could be limited in the reps he receives.

Our View: This would cause a sign of relief among his dynasty owners and anyone who has already drafted Shorts. For those who are yet to draft, Shorts is still worth a pick in the 11th or 12th round as an accomplished, if brittle #1 receiver.
