Cecil Shorts (groin) is inactive for Week 15 against the Bills.

Shorts has been playing hurt all season, but the latest aggravation of his groin injury proved to be too much. Shorts should be considered questionable for Week 16. His absence leaves Ace Sanders, Mike Brown and Kerry Taylor as the Jaguars' top three receivers. Only Sanders is worth WR3 consideration.

Cecil Shorts (groin) is listed as questionable for Week 15.

Shorts will be a game-time decision against Buffalo, as previously announced by coach Gus Bradley. He'll be a dicey WR2/3 in fantasy semifinals week.

According to Jaguars coach Gus Bradley, Cecil Shorts (groin) and Maurice Jones-Drew (hamstring) could both be game-time decisions for Week 15.

Joy to the world. Shorts has been playing hurt all season, but his groin has become a bigger issue after "flaring up." Sunday's showdown with the Bills' burnable secondary was set to be Shorts' first good matchup in weeks, but now he's shaping up as a risky WR2. The fact that Shorts has been playing at less than 100 percent nearly all year is working in his favor, but owners need to have a back-up plan ready.

Cecil Shorts (groin) and Maurice Jones-Drew (hamstring) both missed practice again Thursday.

As previously reported, Jones-Drew won't test his hamstring until Friday and remains very questionable for Sunday's game against the Bills. Shorts' status is getting murkier as well. Beat writer Hays Carlyon says the groin issue is "flaring up" and calls the Jags' No. 1 wideout a "question mark." If Shorts can't go, Mike Brown and Ace Sanders would be Chad Henne's top-two receivers. The good news is that we'll know Shorts' status nice and early Sunday as kickoff is scheduled for 1pm ET.

Cecil Shorts (groin) did not practice Wednesday.

Shorts rarely practices on Wednesdays, so it's not a concern for his Week 15 status. He'll be safe to use as a WR2 for Sunday's matchup against the Bills.

Cecil Shorts (groin) is active for Week 14 against the Texans.

Shorts has yet to miss a game this season despite considerable missed practice time. Coming off back-to-back solid efforts, he's a low-end WR2 against Johnathan Joseph and the Texans' pass defense.

Cecil Shorts (groin) is listed as probable for Thursday night's Week 14 game against the Texans.

Shorts is coming off back-to-back solid efforts after he complained that he wasn't seeing enough targets. He's back in the WR2 mix but will draw Johnathan Joseph in coverage for much of the night.
