Jags coach Gus Bradley wouldn't rule out Shorts' availability for Week 7.
"He could play," Bradley said Monday, per the Jaguars' official website. "He's sore now, so we'll know more in a couple of days. The good news is the joint is stable."
Blackmon has had two superb games since returning from suspension. Bradley said Blackmon likely would miss practice Wednesday with groin/hamstring issues, but the wideout is expected to play Sunday.
When Shorts and Blackmon are on the field together, the Jaguars boast one of the most dynamic young pass-catching combos in the NFL -- if they could just find a quarterback.
Meanwhile, Shorts didn't have a sling on his injured arm Monday.
"I'm not a sling guy," Shorts said.
Neither are we, Cecil. Neither are we.
