Jags WR Cecil Shorts III is waiting and seeing.
And while he did his waiting in pain Monday, the Jaguars’ third-year wide receiver said he hasn’t given up on the idea of playing Sunday.
As significantly, Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley hasn’t, either.
Shorts, who did not return after sustaining a sprained sternoclavicular joint – a joint near the clavicle and rib area – on the third play of a loss in Denver Sunday, hasn’t been ruled out of the team’s game this weekend against San Diego, Bradley said Monday.

MNF Injury Report - Mathews PROBABLE

S LaRon Landry (ankle), LB Bjoern Werner (foot)
LB Erik Walden (elbow)
RB Stanley Havili (ankle), DT Ricky Jean Francois (groin)
G Chad Rinehart (toe)
LB Donald Butler (groin), T D.J. Fluker (calf), LB Jarret Johnson (hamstring), CB Richard Marshall (groin)
G Jeromey Clary (collarbone), T King Dunlap (concussion), RB Ryan Mathews (concussion), G Rich Ohrnberger (groin), CB Johnny Patrick (chest), LB Manti Te'o (foot), CB Shareece Wright (hamstring)
Mathews is listed as probable despite suffering a concussion last week. In both standard and PPR rankings, though, we have Danny Woodhead as a much better play, and as the RB trending upward in the Charger backfield as of late. Mathews is ranked as an RB4 in what's considered a tough matchup against the Colts.
Ryan Mathews suffers a concussion

Mathews left the game in the second quarter. He rushed three times for eight yards.
Danny Woodhead and Ronnie Brown are the only other Chargers tailbacks on the roster and neither is really a carry-the-load back. Mathews was averaging about 15 carries a game this season as Woodhead saw his touches increasing since Week 1. If Mathews were to miss time, the team could look to bring in another back. The Bolts play Week 6 at Indy on Monday night so Mathews will have more time to pass protocol, but we may not know his status ahead of time.
