Jags minus Shorts could be short on points


There is a very real chance Sunday’s Jets-Jaguars game ends in a 0-0 tie.

The Jaguars have already listed six players as out for the game, including wide receiver Cecil Shorts and running back Rashad Jennings, who are still bothered by concussion symptoms.

According to Ryan O’Halloran of the Florida Times-Union, the Jags will also be without running back Maurice Jones-Drew (foot), cornerback Aaron Ross (calf), left guard Mike Brewster (hand) and defensive end George Selvie (concussion).

Down to their fourth starting running back of the season (Montell Owens) and with a receiving corps of Justin Blackmon, Kevin Elliott, Jordan Shipley, Quan Cosby and Toney Clemons, it’s hard to imagine how the Jags are going to score much.

Then again, they’re playing the Jets, who may not even have Tim Tebow available.

No points may be enough to keep them from losing.
