Cecil Shorts III was hit hard in Sunday’s 30-21 loss to Buffalo, but looks to be fine heading into Week 14.

Cecil Shorts took a hit there at the end of the game,” head coach Bill O’Brien said Monday. “But he’s not in the concussion protocol and looks to be okay.”

Bills safety Bacarri Rambo collided with Shorts as he was making a catch across the middle of the field on third-and-6 with 2:53 left in the game. Shorts walked off the field on his own was back in the game on the next drive.

The Texans offense added a few wrinkles in the last two weeks.

Cecil Shorts, III has been a smooth part of those wrinkles.

The veteran wide receiver caught a touchdown pass in Sunday’s win, and also took some direct snaps out of the shotgun. It came a week after he threw a touchdown pass and ran a few direct snaps as well. For Shorts, the offensive creativity has been met with a smile.

“It’s fun, especially when it works,” Shorts said. “When things go well and get positive yards on those plays, it makes the game a whole lot fun.”

Fantasy Impact:

Shorts only finished with three catches for 18 yards, and carried the ball three times for 20 yards in terms of fantasy production. The first quarter score, which gave the Texans a 14-0 advantage, was his second touchdown of the season and 14th of his career. In deeper leagues, he may be someone to keep an eye on with the hope the Texans look to increase his touches.
