Cecil Shorts WR JAC 23 Days

Shorts (groin) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Bengals, Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union reports.

Though Shorts has caught just three passes in each of his last two games, now evidently past the hamstring woes that slowed him earlier this season, he continues to see his share of targets, with a combined 17 looks over his last two outings.

Shorts had three catches on eight targets for 41 yards in Sunday's loss to the Dolphins.

It wasn't the most productive day for Shorts, but it's encouraging to see him maintain a relatively high number of targets. He's now been targeted at least eight times in four of five contests this season. Projecting Shorts' value is rather difficult with the inexperienced Blake Bortles manning the Jaguars' offense, but he is the unquestioned number one receiver, which should continue to yield high target numbers.

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.

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 (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).
