The Jacksonville Jaguars had a tough enough test going against the Denver Broncos in Week 6, but now they may be without their talented wide receiver Cecil Shorts.

Shorts went down in the first quarter of the game with what appeared to be a shoulder injury. The official Twitter account for the Jaguars reported that the injury was a shoulder strain, and that he was questionable to return.

Cecil Shorts has a shoulder sprain and his return is questionable.

After the game Hays Carlyon of the Florida Times-Union provided an update on his status:

Shorts has his right arm in a sling and #Jaguars say he isn't in condition to talk to reporters because of medication.
