Cecil Shorts -- the only proven receiver on the roster -- is going to be out for at least two weeks with a grade two right hamstring strain. It’s the latest in a string of injuries that have cost the fourth-year player 11 games in his first three seasons. (Source: ESPN)

The Jaguars used both of their second-round picks on wide receivers partly due to Justin Blackmon's indefinite suspension, but both of them are currently sidelined during the team's OTAs. With Allen Robinson (hamstring) already out for a few weeks, their other second-rounder, Marqise Lee, is now in a walking boot. Lee didn't practice Monday either. Slowed by various injuries last season at U...
