Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Cecil Shorts III returned to practice on Tuesday morning, after sitting out nearly a week with a strained calf. The Jaguars held Shorts out for most of last week and the first two preseason games against the Miami Dolphins and New York Jets as a precautionary measure, but he's now back on the field.

With Shorts returning to practice, the Jaguars quarterbacks should have their full range of offensive targets in tact. Wide receiver Justin Blackmon returned to practice last week and fit right in on Saturday against the Jets.

Shorts is in full pads and expected to play on Saturday against the Philadelphia Eagles as long as he makes it through the week unscathed.
