Cecil Shorts questionable after missing two practices

Jaguars coach Gus Bradley has answered questions about his depleted receiving corps by saying that the team has talent but not much experience.

The exception to that is Cecil Shorts, who has played a leading role on the offense for the last two seasons, but he may not be around to provide veteran tutelage come Sunday. Shorts missed his second straight practice because of a tight hamstring on Friday, leading him to be listed as questionable with an injury that has been bothering him since early in camp.

“It’s about the same as it was yesterday. It’s a little tight. It doesn’t feel like pulling or anything like that. I don’t think it’s anything serious, but we’ll take it day-to-day,” Shorts said, via the Florida Times-Union. “If I feel good, I’m playing. If I have a choice, I’m going to go. Right now, my mindset is ‘I’m playing.'”

If Shorts doesn’t go, the Jaguars receivers will be Mike Brown, Marqise Lee, Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns. All but Brown are rookies and Robinson’s coming back from a hamstring injury that kept him on the sideline for most of the summer, so Shorts’s status will be something worth watching as the Jags make their trip to Philadelphia this weekend.

    He has plenty of talent, it just isn’t always apparent when you have a scrub like Crappert as your QB to start a career.

    The Jags are a rising team, Bradley is an excellent coach, and they had a great draft class headed by Bortles. That being said starting the season on the road against the Eagles is a bad matchup any way you cut it.

    Gus Bradley seems to be a very good coach. I have no doubt he has come up with a very good plan to stop the Eagles’ offense and the game will be alot closer than many expect. Saying all of that though, the Eagles will win and the outcome won’t be in any serious doubt by the beginning of the fourth quarter.
