JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- The Jacksonville Jaguars don't expect to have receiver Cecil Shorts III available Sunday against Pittsburgh.
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.
Rookie Marqise Lee (hamstring) could return to practice Wednesday after missing the last two games, and fellow receiver Ace Sanders has been taken off the reserve/suspended list.
