Shorts (hamstring) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against Washington, John Oehser of Jaguars.com reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Coach Gus Bradley has yet to rule Shorts out for the contest, indicating that the wideout will travel to Washington this weekend with the team. Still, the doubtful designation in advance of Sunday's 1:00 ET kickoff suggests Shorts sits this week, with Allen Hurns on hand to handle extra Week 2 action in his place.
Shorts (hamstring) did not take part in the media portion of Friday's practice, John Oehser of Jaguars.com reports.

How that goes should help determine what, if anything, the wideout will do at practice in the coming days, with Shorts' Week 2 status thus still murky. In his absence Sunday against the Eagles, Allen Hurns started, recording four catches for 110 yards and two touchdowns in the process.
Shorts (hamstring) has been downgraded to out for Sunday’s game against the Eagles, Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

With Shorts out Sunday, Marqise Lee looks like the upside play among Jags' wideouts in Week 1, with Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns also candidates to be factors in the passing offense in the team's season opener.

2013

Justin Blackmon may have had the star pedigree and 236-yard game last year, but it was Shorts who had four 100-yard games and was by far the more efficient and reliable receiver. Shorts averaged 17.8 YPC (2nd) and 9.3 YPT (8th) despite playing with arguably the worst quarterbacks in the league east of Arizona. At 6-0, 202, Shorts has decent size and enough speed to beat defenses deep (17 catches for 20-plus, and five for 40-plus on just 105 targets). While his timed speed at the NFL Combine (4.6) was below par, he ran a 4.35 at his Pro Day after adjusting his technique. Shorts also saw a fair number of red-zone targets (16), but that was with the prior coaching regime and with Maurice Jones-Drew injured most of the year, so it might not mean much. Shorts should vie with Blackmon to be the team's top target, but while Blackmon serves his suspension for the first four games, Shorts should have the role all to himself. It's worth noting Shorts suffered two concussions during the latter part of last year and eventually wound up on injured reserve. At press time, he's symptom free, and it shouldn't impact his status, but concussions have a tendency to recur, and every subsequent one adds greater long-term risk, a factor the Jaguars and Shorts would undoubtedly take into account should he suffer another.

2012

Shorts had an outstanding rookie training camp, but the wheels fell off his bus once the regular season began as he tallied two receptions for 30 yards and one touchdown. Despite the abysmal totals, Shorts is expected to make the final 53 as he began to show chemistry with QB Blaine Gabbert down the stretch and is working with a new WR coach in Jerry Sullivan. Even if reports out of training camp indicate Shorts looks ready to make an impact, temper your expectations; with Justin Blackmon, Laurent Robinson and Mike Thomas in the mix at receiver, Shorts may not receive enough opportunity to make a considerable fantasy impact in his sophomore season.

2011

Shorts boasts good receiving fundamentals, but may face a significant learning curve in training camp due to the low level of competition he played against in college. Still, if he shows any sort of potential, the Jags' receiving talent is thin at best, so he will be given every opportunity to succeed. Don't expect him to start out of the gate, but long-term, he could be a decent possession receiver.
