Found October 19, 2013 on Sports Injury Alert:
The Jacksonville Jaguars host the San Diego Chargers this Sunday and may be without a few key players. Chad Henne will get the start again at quarterback with Blaine Gabbert already ruled out because of a hamstring injury. But the Jaguars may also be without their two starting wide receivers, Justin Blackmon and Cecil Shorts. Both Blackmon and Shorts will be game-time decisions. Blackmon sat out the entire week of practice with a hamstring injury and looks unlikely to play against San Diego. However, Shorts did practice on a limited basis despite a shoulder injury and appears to have a better chance at playing than Blackmon. The  team will already be without reserve receivers Stephen Burton and Ace Sanders. It’s possible only Mike Brown, Stephen Williams, and Denard Robinson will be ready to play at wideout come game time. Here is the rest of the Jaguars week seven injury news. Will Play: LB Russell Allen (ribs), DE Andre Branch (knee), TE Mercedes Lewis (calf), DT Roy Miller (shoul...
