Things are going pretty well for the Buccaneers at the moment.
Less so, for one of their wide receivers.
Veteran wideout Cecil Shorts blew out his knee in yesterday’s win over the Chargers. According to Britt McHenry of ESPN, Shorts suffered a torn ACL, MCL, PCL and dislocated his kneecap.
That effectively leaves skin as all that was holding his lower leg to his upper leg, and would obviously mean Shorts is out for the rest of the season.
The 28-year-old wideout was carted off early in yesterday’s game after a low hit. He caught 11 passes in nine games for the Bucs this year. The former Jaguars and Texans wideout now faces a long rehab, with no certainty that he’ll get a chance to extend an injury-marred career.
