Draft Scout Cecil Shorts III News
09/29/14 - WR Cecil Shorts was diagnosed with a muscle strain near his hamstring area and is not expected to play this week against Pittsburgh. It will be the third game that Shorts will have missed this season due to injuries.
09/29/14 - WR Cecil Shorts went to the sideline in Sunday's game against San Diego with another left hamstring injury. It marked the fourth time since June that the team's leading receiver from a year ago has been slowed with an injury.
He missed the last couple weeks of the offseason workouts with a calf injury, was out nearly three weeks during training camp with a right hamstring injury, then came back but missed the first two regular-season games with an injury to his left hamstring.
Sunday's injury came when Shorts waited on a pass from Blake Bortles, only to have Chargers defender Brandon Flowers step in front of him and make an interception.
"I felt a pull," said Shorts, whose contract expires at the end of this season. "It actually happened on the play before (the interception). I was running when (a Chargers defender )grabbed me and I felt something pull."
After undergoing diagnostic testing on Monday, Shorts' injury was diagnosed as a muscle strain near the hamstring area and he is not expected to play Sunday against Pittsburgh.
"It's frustrating," coach Gus Bradley said. "No one wants it more than Cecil. In his mind, he can't catch a break. He did some good things and wants it so badly. Sometimes when you work there are going to be disappointments. He has another disappointment and it hurts our team. We just have to figure out why these things occur and if it's anything that's under our control, we have to find out what it is."
09/18/14 - WR Cecil Shorts practiced for the second straight day on Thursday though in a limited capacity. Unless there is a setback on Friday, Shorts will play on Sunday and may be in the starting lineup.
09/11/14 - WR Cecil Shorts did not make the trip to Philadelphia, staying home to get treatment on his hamstring. He did return to practice on Wednesday in a limited capacity. His status for Sunday's game in Washington won't be determined until Friday.
09/11/14 - WR Cecil Shorts did not practice after getting limited reps on Wednesday. Said coach Gus Bradley, "It's not exactly good that he didn't practice today, but we'll see what happens." Shorts' status for Sunday's game will likely be made on Friday.
