Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Cecil Shorts III left Sunday’s loss to the Denver Broncos with an injury.

Cecil Shorts clarified what his injury was exactly, well sort of.

Rotoworld wrote:

We’re not sure exactly what Shorts is referring to here as the AC joint connects the scapula and the clavicle. It’s essentially the hinge for the shoulder and allows us to raise our arms.

It could be worse for Shorts as well. There are reports that he has “a fractured rib closer towards the sternum” as well, according to Josina Anderson. She also reported that the x-ray was obscured by his lung and that he’ll get a CT scan later today.

We should get a clearer diagnosis this afternoon. He didn’t catch a pass in the the game, and has 31 catches for 411 yards on the season.
