Jaguars WR Cecil Shorts (hamstring) will miss a couple of weeks

Jaguars wide receiver Cecil Shorts III left practice on Friday with a hamstring injury and coach Gus Bradley said today that Shorts will miss a couple of weeks, per Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times Union.

With training camp just underway, it makes sense to be cautious with a hamstring injury as those tend to linger. In fact, Shorts missed the team's minicamp last month with a hamstring injury although he participated in Larry Fitzgerald's offseason camp.

Not only is the team expected to be without Justin Blackmon all season, but Ace Sanders is suspended for the first four games as well.

The team drafted a couple of wide receivers — Marqise Lee and Allen Robinson — in the second round, but they will rely on Shorts to lead the receiver corps.

Battling a variety of injuries, Shorts has missed multiple games in each of the past two seasons and durability concerns could limit his upside in 2014. In my fantasy football wide receiver rankings, Shorts is my top-ranked Jaguars wide receiver (WR38 overall).
