Jacksonville wideout Cecil Shorts suffered a concussion Sunday against the Patriots.Fantasy Spin:We doubt Jacksonville would risk reinjuring one of their best players in a meaningless Week 17 game so this is probably the last we'll see of Shorts this season. Assuming he's done for the year, Shorts will finish the 2012 campaign with a career-high 979 yards on 55 catches.

Mike Mularkey Says Patriots Broke Rules at Goal Line Forcing Zach Potter to Jump Offsides

It’s not new to accuse the Patriots of breaking the rules. Jaguars head coach Mike Mularkey is blaming the Patriots’ goal line tactics for his tight end, Zach Potter, jumping offsides late in the fourth quarter as Jacksonville was facing a 3rd-and-goal situation on the Patriots’ one-yard line down by seven.

Jacksonville quarterback Chad Henne produced an impressive yardage total Sunday against New England (348 yards on 51 attempts) but his three interceptions put a damper on the afternoon.Fantasy Spin:To Henne's credit, not all of the miscues were his fault.

Rashad Jennings Placed On IR

No more wondering whether Jaguars' running back Rashad Jennings will play again in 2012 - he's been placed on injured reserve.Fantasy Spin:Jennings had his chances to show he can be a starting running back in the NFL and fell short on almost every occasion. Jacksonville needs to find a backup for oft-injured Maurice Jones-Drew as we don't believe the answer is on their current roster.

Jaguars place Shorts, Jennings, Jones on IR

The Jaguars need Tim Tebow as much as Tebow needs the Jaguars.  Time to get serious. Here are my Power Rankings and a quick note about each team. 1) San Francisco - Don't panic, Seattle doesn't lose at home. 2) Texans - They are solid on both sides of the ball. 3) Patriots - Suspect defense keep them from the top spot. 4) Denver - On the rise, are they a Super Bowl...
