JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- Jacksonville Jaguars receiver Cecil Shorts III is back at practice and symptom-free following his first concussion.
Shorts, who has 43 receptions for 824 yards and seven touchdowns this season, missed last week's game against the New York Jets because of lingering symptoms. Shorts says he was "out for about 5 seconds" after getting hit at Buffalo the previous week.
He recovered by sitting in a dark room and watched the game at home to avoid loud noises.
He practiced in a limited capacity Wednesday, but coach Mike Mularkey believes Shorts will play Sunday at Miami.
Shorts spoke to teammate Laurent Robinson, who is on injured reserve following his fourth concussion, and said he told him to not rush back.
Shorts says "the biggest thing is resting the brain."

Montell Owens rushed for 91 yards and a touchdown on 14 attempts in his first career start and added an 11 yard reception.

After losing at home to the Jets, the Jaguars look poised to lose out. Their only remaining home game is against the Patriots and getting another win would mean winning in Tennessee or Miami. They are in are in the driver’s seat for the #1 pick right now.

Late in November in an apparent cost cutting move the Philadelphia Eagles cut Jason Babin. At the time, while many people that I spoke to called it a blatant cash motivated move by a cheap owner I found plenty of reasons from a football sense to justify it. The recent decision to reduce Mike Patterson's salary after placing him on the non-football illness list is much more difficult...
The numbers are staggering, as if there must be a typo.
But there is none.
In 27 years as the head football coach at Mount Union, Larry Kehres' Purple Raiders have played 358 games and won 331. They've lost 24, and tied three. His winning percentage of .929 is easily the best in college football history, and five of his losses have come in the NCAA's Division III national...
