Cecil Shorts III injury: Jaguars WR passes concussion test

US PRESSWIRE

The Jaguars wide receiver will not practice on Wednesday due to concussion-like symptoms.

Jaguars Head Coach Mike Mularkey told reporters on Wednesday that receiver Cecil Shorts III passes a concussion test, but is still not cleared to practice due to concussion-like symptoms, according to Mark Long of the Associated Press.

Shorts, 24, caught seven passes for 77 yards and a touchdown against the Bills before a collision to the head ended his game. The hit drew a 15-yard personal foul penalty and Shorts was taken to the locker room shortly thereafter. He did not return to action.

In subsequent tweets, Long explained that Shorts passed the baseline concussion test, but was still having symptoms such as headaches, dizziness and nausea. Due to the symptoms, Shorts is among the players that will not participate in Wednesday's practice.

With four games left to play, Shorts has 824 yards receiving and seven touchdowns. He ranks No. 16 in the NFL in yardage, No. 12 in receiving touchdowns and No. 2 in yards per reception. With 176 more yards, he can become the third different Jaguars receiver to eclipse 1,000 yards receiving and the first since Jimmy Smith did so in 2005.
