Shorts feels "rusty" in return to practice-- Sun Aug 17 1:36 pm --
First real practice since April
Jaguars standout receiver Cecil Shorts used the same word four times to describe his first practice in over three weeks.
"It felt good to be back out there with the guys," Shorts said. "I'm definitely rusty. So, I've got to continue to work and to not get frustrated. I understand this is really my first practice since April."(Florida Times-Union)
FF Today's Take:Shorts has missed a good chunk of the preseason with hamstring issues but hopes to be ready for Week 1. He'll be monitored closely and any setback over the next couple weeks will certainly cause his ADP to plunge even further. His injury risk has caused him to drop into the 11th-round (WR52) in standard scoring 12-team leagues.
Pulled from practice due to tightness in hamstring
Receiver Cecil Shorts was pulled from practice because of tightness in his hamstring. Shorts’ 2013 preseason was derailed by a strained calf and he was limited throughout the off-season program because of a similar injury. And today, he was held out of practice at the end with the hamstring problem.(Florida Times Union)
FF Today's Take:With Justin Blackmon suspended indefinitely, Ace Sanders serving a four-game suspension and two rookies likely to see significant playing time, the Jaguars will need Shorts on the field more than ever this season. Shorts' injury risk is growing by the day and something fantasy owners should take note of.
Jags receivers missing from mini-camp-- Tue Jun 17 2:10 pm --
FF Today's Take:Head coach Gus Bradley has stated that Shorts won't practice at all this week. Shorts' injury history is becoming lengthy and is the main reason his ADP is hovering around Round 10 in 12-team re-draft leagues. He should be ready to participate in training camp.
Jags thin at receiver during OTAs-- Mon Jun 9 7:00 am --
Shorts, Sanders and both rookies nursing injuries
With seven of the 11 receivers — including veteran Cecil Shorts and second-round picks Marqise Lee and Allen Robinson — out with various ailments, the group consisted of Kerry Taylor and three players who’ve yet to appear in a regular-season NFL game. Taylor and the other three weren’t drafted.(Florida Times Union)
FF Today's Take:Both rookies, Lee (ankle) and Robinson (hamstring) are not expected to participate in Monday's OTA session. Ace Sanders is also missing time due to a hamstring injury while Shorts is sitting out with a calf injury. "I’ll try to go back there Monday, but it’s out of my control. It’s the time of year to kind of chill,” Shorts said. "No need to rush it."
