Cecil Shorts injury: Jaguars WR suffers a concussion

US PRESSWIRE

Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Cecil Shorts went down with a concussion late in Sunday's loss to the Buffalo Bills.

One big bright spot on the Jacksonville Jaguars offense has been the emergence of wide receiver Cecil Shorts III as a big play threat and becoming the Jaguars go-to receiver. Shorts ended Sunday's game against the Buffalo Bills with seven catches for 77 yards and a touchdown, but left the game early after a big shot from Bills safety Ron Brooks.

Brooks came in head first at Shorts as Shorts lowered to absorb the blow and looked like he was knocked unconscious, laying on the ground motionless for a minute or so before trainers came out and he left the field, eventually heading to the locker room.

After the game, Jaguars head coach Mike Mularkey confirmed that Shorts had suffered a concussion, which means his availability for Sunday's game against the New York Jets is in question.

Drafted in the fourth-round of the 2011 NFL Draft, Shorts is on his way to become the first Jaguars receiver to hit the 1,000 yard receiving mark since Jimmy Smith retired. Shorts needs just 176 yards in the remaining four games to hit the mark.
