Cecil Shorts wants to make return against the Jacksonville Jaguars -
Houston Texans wide receiver Cecil Shorts missed their Week 5 matchup against the Indianapolis Colts after separating his shoulder during the Texans loss to the Atlanta Falcons during Week 4. The Sunday to Thursday turn around didn’t give Shorts enough time to recover in time to face the Colts. With a couple of extra days to heal the Houston Chronicle is reporting that Shorts is likely to play on Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Blake Bortles practices in full on Wednesday -
Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles practiced in full on Wednesday. He is expected to start against the Texans on Sunday. Head coach Gus Bradley warned media two days ago that Blake might not practice today, but didn't seem overly concerned about the shoulder injury Blake sustained in the Jaguars' 38-31 loss to the Bucs.

Sen'Derrick Marks practices in full for first time this season -
The Jacksonville Jaguars began Week 6 practice just outside of EverBank Field on Wednesday, hoping to turn things around after three-straight losses on the road. The team will now face the Houston Texans at home in a battle of AFC South rivals. Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles was able to practice on Wednesday despite suffering a sprained AC joint in his shoulder. He is looking forward to the challenge of facing the Texans, who swept the Jaguars last season in their two-game series.
