| Allen Hurns (concussion) expected to play Week 12|
Rookie named starter opposite Cecil Shorts III
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Nov 18, 9:22 am
|Gus Bradley said wide receiver Marqise Lee continues to practice well. Bradley said before the bye the rookie had had his best two weeks of practice, and he said he had another good practice Monday.
“He’s showing his competitiveness,” Bradley said. “I think it’s just his mindset and he’s really taking advantage of this opportunity.” Lee’s opportunity is coming in the wake of a season-ending injury to rookie Allen Robinson, who is expected to undergo foot surgery this week. With Robinson out, Bradley on Monday said rookie Allen Hurns and veteran Cecil Shorts III will start, but that Lee will move into the third receiver role.
FFToday's Take: Hurns is a viable deep threat in the Jaguars offense but Cecil Shorts III will likely see a ton of targets this week against the Colts. Hurns is expected to be cleared from the concussion protocol and both he and the veteran Shorts make interesting plays this week in what should be a high-scoring game.
| Cecil Shorts aggravates hamstring injury|
MRI scheduled for Monday
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Sep 29, 7:00 am
|Jaguars receiver Cecil Shorts’ star-crossed season continued when he sustained a left hamstring injury in the third quarter and left the game. "I felt a pull,” Shorts said. "It actually happened on the play before [the interception] when I was getting off the line. I beat [the defender] and was running when he grabbed me and I felt something pull." (Florida Times-Union)|
FFToday's Take: Shorts will have an MRI to determine the extent of the damage. If and when he's cleared to play, the amount of injuries he's suffered through this season makes him unreliable for fantasy owners. Allen Hurns and Allen Robinson will likely be the leading receivers for Jacksonville in Week 5.

Rookie receivers get big opportunity on Sunday
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Sep 6, 1:50 pm
|The Jaguars have declared wide receiver Cecil Shorts out of the season opener at Philadelphia with a hamstring injury and he won’t make the trip for the game.
The other three players not making the trip are running back Storm Johnson, offensive tackle Austin Pasztor and tight end Clay Harbor. (Florida Times Union)|
FFToday's Take: Shorts had been bothered by a hamstring injury during training camp and it flared up again on Thursday. He was limited in practice Friday. With Shorts out, Marqise Lee, Allen Hurns and Allen Robinson (all rookies) will be the top targets for Chad Henne. Lee and Hurns offers the most fantasy appeal but both are desperation plays.
| Cecil Shorts still bothered by hamstring injury|
Misses practice Friday
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Sep 5, 11:59 am
|Jaguars receiver Cecil Shorts participated in this morning’s walk-through but is not practicing because of hamstring tightness that forced him to leave Thursday’s practice early.
Shorts was not present during the first 30 minutes of today’s workout.
It is expected that Shorts will be listed as questionable for Sunday’s opener at Philadelphia. (Florida Times Union)|
FFToday's Take: Shorts was unable to finish practice yesterday so it's looking more an more like he won't be available against the Bears this week. Expect him to be a gametime decision. If he can't go, Marqise Lee, Allen Robinson Allen Hurns and Mike Brown will be the top receivers for Chad Henne.
