Cecil Shorts WR JAC 9 Days

With reference to Shorts' (hamstring) absence from the field Thursday, coach Gus Bradley acknowledged that "it's not exactly good that he didn't practice today," John Oehser of Jaguars.com reports.

While things could look up if Shorts if he is able to practice in some capacity Friday, the wideout's Week 2 status looks cloudy. Meanwhile, fellow starting wideout Marqise Lee practiced fully Thursday, with Allen Hurns a candidate to see expanded duties once again on Sunday against Washington, should Shorts ends up being sidelined.

Shorts (hamstring) indicated that he won't practice Thursday, Hays Carlyon of the Florida Times-Union reports.

According to the report, Shorts relays that he didn't have a setback Wednesday, so it's plausible that his absence is precautionary in nature. In any case, what Shorts is able to Friday at practice will be telling with regard to his Week 2 playing prospects.

Shorts (hamstring) was to able practice in a limited fashion Wednesday, the Florida Times-Union reports.

Shorts' hamstring issue kept him out of the Jags' loss to Philadelphia this past Sunday, but his return to practice Wednesday bodes well for his Week 2 prospects. Meanwhile, fellow starting receiver Marqise Lee was unable to finish practice Wednesday, though it's unclear at this stage if his weekend status is in any danger.

Shorts (hamstring) will try to run Tuesday, John Oehser of jaguars.com reports.

How that goes should help determine what, if anything, the wideout will do at practice in the coming days, with Shorts' Week 2 status thus still murky. In Shorts' absence Sunday against the Eagles, Allen Hurns started, recording four catches for 110 yards and two TDs in the process.

Shorts (hamstring) is officially out for Sunday's game against the Eagles, Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun reports.

Shorts (hamstring), who was officially a limited participant at Friday's practice, is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Eagles, the Jaguars' official site reports.

Meanwhile, ESPN.com notes that coach Gus Bradley indicated that the Jags will evaluate the wideout on Saturday and Sunday before a determination is made on Shorts' status for Sunday's 1:00 ET kickoff. If Shorts is out or limited at all this weekend, Marqise Lee would presumably be the upside play among Jags' wideouts in Week 1, while Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns could also be in line for added looks.

Though Shorts (hamstring) participated in Friday morning's walk-through, the Florida Times-Union reports that the wideout is is not practicing.

We'll have to see exactly how the Jaguars officially list Shorts' practice activity Friday, but the report suggests that is expected that the wideout will be listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Eagles, which kicks off at 1:00 ET.

Shorts (hamstring) participated in Friday morning's walkthrough, but did not practice in full, Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union reports.

Shorts was limited Thursday due to a left hamstring issue, and it looks like the Jaguars will continue to take a conservative approach. If he had been able to participate more during Friday's practice, we'd feel a lot more confident about his prospects of suiting up Sunday, but for now, his status remains cloudy. Check back on his status prior to Sunday's game, and if he's unable to go, look for Marquise Lee, Allen Robinson (hamstring) and Allen Hurns to see increased targets.

Shorts was unable to finish practice Thursday due to left hamstring tightness, the Florida Times-Union reports. "It was more precautionary on our part," coach Gus Bradley indicated Thursday. "He just had a little bit of tightness. We were looking at possibly giving him [today] off and we said, �Let's go out there and see how it feels.' Then we said, �Let's not do it.'"

The report notes that it was a right hamstring issue that slowed the wideout during the preseason, but we'll feel a lot better about Shorts' Week 1 status if he gets a good practice in on Friday. Officially, Shorts was listed as a limited practice participant Thursday. Next up in the team's wideout pecking order in the event that Shorts is limited at all this weekend are Marqise Lee, Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns.

Shorts was held out of Thursday's practice due to tightness in his hamstring, John Oehser of jaguars.com reports.

On the plus side, Oehser adds that coach Gus Bradley indicated that Shorts was held out Thursday for precautionary reasons. Based on that, as long as Shorts practices in some capacity Friday, the wideout's Week 1 status does not appear to be in jeopardy.
