Cecil Shorts inactive, Toby Gerhart active

Jaguars receiver Cecil Shorts III will miss his second consecutive game.

Shorts has been deactivated by the Jaguars due to the lingering hamstring issue he's been dealing with. Shorts sustained the injury during the preseason.

Starting in Shorts' place will be Allen Hurns, an undrafted rookie out of Miami. Hurns caught two touchdowns and went for 110 yards in his NFL debut against Philadelphia last week.

Running back Toby Gerhart, who tweaked his ankle a week ago, is active and will start against Washington.
