Cecil Shorts WR JAC 13 Days
Shorts (hamstring) caught 10 passes for 103 yards - both game-highs - in Sunday's loss to the Titans.
Shorts has been hobbled by a hamstring issue for much of the season and played Sunday after missing last week's loss to the Steelers. His return was a welcomed sight for Blake Bortles, who targeted Shorts 16 times. Shorts' value going forward may be limited by Bortles' inexperience, not to mention the Jags' sluggish offense, but he's the clear number one option in the passing game when healthy.

Shorts (hamstring) is active for Sunday's game against the Titans.
Shorts was able to fully practice Thursday and Friday after being held out Wednesday. He has played in only two games this year, catching seven passes for 60 yards and a touchdown, and he returns along with rookie Marqise Lee, who has missed the last three games with a hamstring injury of his own. Allens Robinson and Hurns are also active, with the former getting the start ahead of Lee on Sunday.

Shorts (left hamstring) was a full participant in practice Thursday, the Florida Times-Union reports.
We'll have to see how Shorts responds to a return to a full workload at practice on Thursday, but it's a big step in the right direction for the wideout, who did not practice Wednesday. We'll revisit Shorts' status Friday to see what official injury designation he ends up with in advance of Sunday's game against the Titans.

Shorts indicated that he is "week-to-week" with his hamstring injury, according to Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union.
With Marqise Lee also expected to be out for Sunday's game against the Steelers, look for Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns to head the Jaguars' Week 5 wideout corps.

Shorts (hamstring) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Steelers.
Shorts suffered a muscle strain near his left hamstring Sunday and will consequently return to the Jaguars' absentee list moving forward. In a concerning trend for the Jaguars' No. 1 receiver, Shorts' has already missed two games this season and his latest injury is his fourth since June. With Shorts deemed unavailable for Sunday's game against the Steelers, Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns (ankle) figure to benefit from expanded roles, while rookie Marqise Lee faces his own hamstring issue to overcome before being of use to fantasy owners.

Shorts will undergo diagnostic testing Monday to determine the extent of the left hamstring injury he suffered Sunday, The Florida Times-Union reports.
Shorts reportedly felt a pull in his left hamstring Sunday, which marked his fourth injury since June. With testing slated for Monday, more information regarding Shorts' condition should be forthcoming. Nonetheless, the Jaguars' No. 1 wideout could be facing yet another sideline spell, which would stand to benefit the fantasy values of players like Marqise Lee (hamstring), Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns (ankle).

Shorts (hamstring) made his season debut Sunday, catching five passes for 35 yards and a touchdown.
Shorts tied for a team-high with 10 targets and caught a 10-yard touchdown late in the fourth quarter from Blake Bortles, who entered the game in relief of starter Chad Henne. Shorts is clearly the Jaguars' top receiver, but the team's less-than-stellar quarterback play restricts his value on a week-to-week basis. Bortles, who will start Week 4, should provide a spark to an otherwise-stagnant offense, but he still lacks experience, as evidenced by the pair of picks he threw Sunday.

Shorts (hamstring) is listed as active and starting Sunday's game against the Colts.
In his return to action, Shorts should see his share of looks while starting, assuming no injury setbacks, though until he turns in a full and productive game, he's a speculative play with Chad Henne at QB for the Jags.
