Coach Gus Bradley all but ruled Shorts out Monday, a day after the fourth-year pro tweaked a muscle near his left hamstring in a 33-14 loss at San Diego.
Shorts missed the first two games of the season with a strained left hamstring. He started the last two, catching seven passes for 60 yards and a touchdown.
But now he's back on the sidelines. Although Shorts led the Jaguars (0-4) in receiving the last two seasons, he has missed 13 games in four seasons because of various injuries.
