The Jaguars are trying to get ready for a season, and school up rookie quarterback Blake Bortles at the same time.
Both jobs are a little harder because they don’t have many wide receivers on the field at the moment.
“This is the best my body has felt in a long time,” said Shorts, coming back from offseason groin surgery. “I’m not too worried about it at all.”
While his absence is not necessarily a reason for concern now, he does add to a long list of receivers who are watching instead of working.
That means they finished yesterday’s work with five wideouts, leaving a lot of reps for the weary few healthy ones on the roster.
