Justin Blackmon, Cecil Shorts listed as questionable

The Jaguars are still looking for their first win of the 2013 season and they might not know until Sunday whether they’ll be trying to pick it up this weekend without their starting wide receivers.

Justin Blackmon and Cecil Shorts are both listed as questionable for the matchup with the Chargers. Blackmon missed practice on both Wednesday and Friday with a hamstring injury while Shorts has been limited the last two days with an injured SC joint that he said was painful enough to make him unable to sleep earlier this week.

Ryan O’Halloran of the Florida Times Union reports that Shorts said he plans to play “and deal with pain” while Blackmon said that there’s no question he’ll be in the lineup. It shapes up as a good matchup for both receivers as the Chargers are giving up the eighth-most passing yards per game. That defense will be just as vulnerable if the two wideouts can’t play, but the Jaguars aren’t likely to take advantage of it with the other receivers on their roster.

Those players won’t include Stephen Burton or Ace Sanders, each of whom have been ruled out of the game because of concussions.

    I’d be tempted to take the Jaguars over the Chargers if the Jaguars were healthy. Even if they were healthy, it’d be a reach, but the Chargers are inconsistent and the Jaguars have got to win sometime, right? Chad Henne is not a good quarterback, but he’s competent when not asked to do too much. Blaine Gabbert would have led the Jaguars to an 0-16 season.
