Jags don't expect Cecil Shorts to play Week 5

Fox Sports - [Full Article]

The Jacksonville Jaguars don't expect to have receiver Cecil Shorts III available Sunday against Pittsburgh.

Coach Gus Bradley all but ruled Shorts out Monday, a day after the fourth-year pro tweaked a muscle near his left hamstring in a 33-14 loss at San Diego.

Shorts missed the first two games of the season with a strained left hamstring. He started the last two, catching seven passes for 60 yards and a touchdown.

But now he's back on the sidelines. Although Shorts led the Jaguars (0-4) in receiving the last two seasons, he has missed 13 games in four seasons because of various injuries.

Fantasy Impact: 

Rookie Marqise Lee (hamstring) could return to practice Wednesday after missing the last two games, and fellow receiver Ace Sanders has been taken off the reserve/suspended list. Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns will also chip in but a lot needs to be sorted out among this group for fantasy purposes.
