Cecil Shorts questionable for Sunday

The Jaguars will hope that receiver Cecil Shorts is good to go by kickoff on Sunday.

However, Jacksonville's top receiver was unable to practice on Friday due to a lingering hamstring injury. He's been listed as questionable for the Jaguars' game against Philadelphia.

If Shorts is unable to go, the Jaguars will be relying on a slew of rookie receivers, including Marqise Lee, Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns. If that's the case, look for Philadelphia's defense to load the box up to stop Toby Gerhart for most of the game.

In other words, the Jaguars need Shorts available in two days.
