Jags lose Cecil Shorts for a couple of weeks

Shorts AP

At a time when the Jaguars have plenty of reasons for optimism, a mild amount of rain has fallen on a parade that potentially will lead the franchise quickly to relevance.

Via Ryan O’Halloran of the Florida Times Union, receiver Cecil Shorts has a hamstring strain that will keep him out for at least the next two weeks.  Shorts likely will miss the first two preseason games.

Shorts, who missed the first two preseason games a year ago with a calf strain, suffered the injury during practice on Friday.

“I think it frustrated him more than anything,” coach Gus Bradley said, via O’Halloran.  “He really wanted to come out here.  We trust Cecil so much as far as being ready mentally.  He knows what to do so we have enough time. We’ll be OK.”

Shorts’ absence gave rookie receiver Allen Hurns, among others, some opportunities with the first-team offense.

    The Jaguars have no Shorts. That can’t be good for support.

    They have no fans to begin with, just tarps, and I don’t think the tarps care!

    The Jags are simply not allowed to have good WRs. Everbank must be built on an indian burial ground.

    So the only Jags WR that’s not a dope fiend doesn’t stretch before practice…

    Hamstring injuries are lingering, and almost impossible to shake if you don’t let em heal AND do some kind of extensive treatment. I pulled my hamstring 3times within 5months during track in college , and for about a year and a half almost always suffered minor pulls or tweaks to my hamstrings. It wasn’t until I stopped track and committed to light running and about a half hour to an hour of stretching/yoga. It’s the most frustrating injury ever.
