Inside the Jaguars: Shorts, Blackmon miss practice

One of the Jaguars’ strongest areas isn’t exactly its healthiest. It sure wasn’t on Wednesday. With Cecil Shorts III and Justin Blackmon each missing practice, the Jaguars were down to two healthy active wide receivers on Wednesday as they prepared to play the San Diego Chargers. Wide receivers Ace Sandersand Stephen Burton missed practice with concussions. Shorts missed practice with a sprained SC joint (shoulder) sustained Sunday at Denver, and Blackmon missed with the groin/hamstring injury he played through while catching 14 passes for 190 yards Sunday.

The Jaguars still rank last in the NFL in total offense.However, with receiver Justin Blackmon back in the lineup, the Jaguars might not be in the offensive cellar much longer.The second-year receiver has dominated in the two games since returning from a four-game suspension to start the season for violating the league’s substance abuse policy. Blackmon has caught 19 passes for 326 yards and a touchdown over the last two games.

Open locker room: Henne focused on Sunday

The starting job’s hardly the only thing on Chad Henne’s mind this week. There is the matter of his newborn son. But Henne – who will start Sunday for a second time in as many weeks for Blaine Gabbert – said when it comes to the Jaguars’ permanent starting quarterback position, he has the same approach he has had all season, all of last season and pretty much since he can remember. Henne said he’ll start Sunday. And whatever happens after that . . . well, it happens. "I don’t even think about it," Henne said as the Jaguars (0-6) prepared to play the San Diego Chargers (3-3) at EverBank Field Sunday at 1 p.m.
