Shorts (illness) finished with four catches for 35 yards in Sunday's win over the Giants.

Shorts battled through flu-like symptoms in the week leading up to Sunday's game but took the field and was targeted by Blake Bortles eight times, which tied for tops on the team. While Shorts appears to be the Jags' unquestioned No. 1 receiver, he's turned in just two 100-yard efforts on the season and has topped 50 yards in just one of his last six games.

Shorts (flu) is probable for Sunday's game against the Giants, Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union reports.

Shorts, who checks in with 34 catches for 381 yards and a TD in eight games overall, will look to bounce back from the one-catch, six-yard effort he put up in Week 12. Prior to that dud, he caught five passes in each of his previous two games, so a bounce-back Sunday seems plausible against a Giants' defense that allows an average of 254 passing yards per game.

Shorts (flu) returned to practice Thursday, Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union reports.

Shorts' return to practice puts him on track to be available for Sunday's game against the Giants, at which point the wideout -- who has caught 34 passes for 381 yards and a TD in eight games to date -- will look to bounce back from a one-catch, six-yard effort in Week 12.

Shorts (flu) missed practice Wednesday, the Jaguars' official site reports.

Shorts should be fine for Sunday's game against the Giants, though he's coming off a one-catch, six-yard fantasy dud in Week 12, after catching five passes in each of his previous two outings.

Shorts had just one catch for six yards in Sunday's loss to the Colts.

Coming off of a 119-yard performance against the Cowboys before the bye week, Shorts followed up with a dude, notching just one reception on three targets. Shorts is firmly entrenched as the Jags' No. 1 receiver, but his upside is severely limited by the inconsistency of rookie quarterback Blake Bortles, who threw for a season-low 146 with one pick Sunday.

Shorts (hamstring) caught five passes for 119 yards in Sunday's loss to the Cowboys.

Shorts, who dealt with a hamstring issue in the week leading up to the game, was targeted seven times by quarterback Blake Bortles, second only to Allen Robinson (10 targets). While Shorts' upside is limited by Bortles' inexperience, the fourth-year receiver has been targeted at least seven times in his last five games. On the season (seven games), he has 33 catches for 375 yards and one touchdown.

Shorts (hamstring) is active for Sunday's game against the Cowboys.

Shorts' hamstring is not a concern after he was able to log a full practice Friday. He's averaging 10 targets per game over the last four weeks, and quarterback Blake Bortles will likely look his way frequently Sunday against Dallas' mediocre pass defense.

Shorts (hamstring) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Cowboys.

Shorts sat out Thursday's practice to rest his hamstring, but he is good to go for Sunday's game after getting in a full practice session Friday. Shorts has tallied just 256 receiving yards in six games, but he has been getting regular looks from quarterback Blake Bortles, as evidenced by his average of nine targets per contest.

Though Shorts sat out Thursday's practice with hamstring tightness, he hopes to play Sunday against the Cowboys, the Florida Times-Union reports. "Taking today off to rest it and then go out there and practice [Friday] and go from there," Shorts noted Thursday.

We'll thus revisit the wideout's status Friday, though at this stage it appears as though Shorts intends to practice in some capacity on Friday in advance of Sunday's 1:00 ET kickoff against Dallas.
