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.
