Jacksonville Jaguars WR Cecil Shorts has been cleared for activities following a concussion.
Huddle Up: Shorts was one of the surprise breakout players of the season. With the concussion behind him he'll be ready to go when the Jaguars begin offseason activities; however, any cred he may have built up last season likely left when Jacksonville retooled its administrative staff.

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Cecil Shorts (concussion) was placed on Injured Reserve Monday, Dec. 24.
Huddle Up: Tough end to a breakout season for Shorts, who had 55 catches for 979 yards and 7 TDs for the Jags. First-round pick Justin Blackmon, who's coming off a 7-79-TD game in Week 16, will be the team's No. 1 wideout in Sunday's regular-season finale.

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Cecil Shorts left the Week 16 game against the New England Patriots due to concussion.
Huddle Up: That's two concussions for Shorts, and the latest will most likely bring to an end his breakout season. Too early to tell if he's heading down the Austin Collie/Jahvid Best path, but it's definitely a concern heading into 2013.

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Cecil Shorts (concussion) has been ruled out for Week 14.

Huddle Up: Shorts has been one of the waiver-wire finds of the season with 7 total TDs and at least 77 receiving yards in 7 of the past 8 games, but the blow to the head he suffered late in Week 13 is starting to look like it will end that run.

Huddle Up: This could be a big problem for anyone who has been riding Shorts lately. While he was cleared, experiencing symptoms is still serious. See if he practices later in the week, otherwise you might be out of luck with him this week.

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Cecil Shorts finished with 6 receptions for a game-high 105 yards and the team's lone TD Thursday night in a 27-10 Week 10 loss to the Indianapolis Colts.
Huddle Up: Laurent Robinson actually led the Jags in receptions with a season-high 9 for 77 yards in the game, but, once again, Shorts came up with the team's biggest play, snaring a 4-yard TD pass from Chad Henne in the fourth quarter. It was the team- leading 4th TD of the season for Shorts, who also paces the Jags in receiving with 29 catches for 561 yards.

Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Mike Mularkey said WR Cecil Shorts will remain one of the starting wide receiver even though WR Laurent Robinson (concussion) is expected to return.
Huddle Up: The second-year receiver has been a pleasant surprise for the Jaguars this season, and it looks like they will reward him by letting him keep the starting gig when Laurent Robinson returns. Shorts has been the best receiver for the Jaguars this season, so this should not be a big shock. He has value as a WR3, and it will continue to rise if he continues to perform consistently.
