Jaguars TE Clay Harbor will miss "more than a few days" with a strained calf.

Harbor had to be carted off the field on Monday night. He entered camp as the heavy favorite for No. 2 tight-end duties behind Marcedes Lewis. Undrafted rookie TE Marcel Jensen will get more looks while Harbor is sidelined.

Chad Henne has been given the green light to audible as much as he wants.

Now in his second year in OC Jedd Fisch's scheme, Henne is getting plenty of leash. "If we have to throw it every down because they're giving so many guys at the line of scrimmage, we'll throw it," said the veteran bridge to Blake Bortles. Henne gets a little boost with the additions of Marqise Lee and Allen Robinson, but this is still a backup-caliber player operating a ball-control offense. Even owners in two-QB leagues should be aiming higher.

Allen Robinson and Marqise Lee are now running as the starters in two-wide sets at Jaguars camp.

Cecil Shorts' latest soft-tissue injury has him out at least two weeks, Ace Sanders is facing a four-game ban and Justin Blackmon won't play in the NFL this season. So the Jags' two rookies are being handed first-team work right out of the gate. We're still not high on either as more than WR4/5s as they find their way in a run-first, ball-control scheme quarterbacked by Chad Henne.

Tests revealed that Cecil Shorts sustained a Grade 2 hamstring strain in Friday's practice.

In other words, it's more severe than standard early-camp tightness. Shorts will be sidelined at least two weeks, adding more injury concerns to his outlook. He underwent groin surgery in December and sat out almost all offseason workouts with calf and hamstring issues.

Jaguars WR Cecil Shorts is expected to miss "several weeks" with a hamstring strain.

The injury forced Shorts from practice on Friday. Injuries have become a bugaboo for Shorts, who missed most of OTAs and all of minicamp with a hamstring injury and has been limited by injuries each of the last two seasons. Shorts should be ready for the start of the season, but it is hard to be confident he will play a full 16 in 2014.

Jaguars GM Dave Caldwell reiterated the team wants to sign Cecil Shorts long term.

Shorts is entering a contract season. "I’ve been in communication with his agent and we’ve had good talks," Caldwell said. "We’re trying to find a happy ground with what’s best for Cecil and what’s best for us. We obviously would like him here for the long term." In June, the Florida Times Union suggested Shorts could command Doug Baldwin money. Baldwin has a three-year, $13 million deal.

Jaguars GM Dave Caldwell stated rookie Marqise Lee could play snaps at slot receiver with Ace Sanders on suspension.

Sanders is out four games. The Jags appear to envision Lee as a Roddy White-like movement receiver with the ability to play both Z and slot. Lee is a candidate to lead Jacksonville in receptions as a rookie. He's a WR4/5 flier.

Appearing on NFL Insiders Friday, ESPN's Michael DiRocco stated the Jaguars will aim for 20-25 touches per game for Toby Gerhart.

"They want him to be the workhorse back ... get 20-25 touches," DiRocco stated. DiRocco confirmed Gerhart will be involved in both the pass and run games as a true three-down back. Gerhart's ADP is currently in the late third round.
Jul 25 - 3:37 PM

Cecil Shorts (hamstring) had to leave Friday's training camp practice early with hamstring tightness.

We normally don't post injuries like this, but it's becoming a concern after he missed most of OTAs and all of minicamp with a balky hamstring. The injuries have been piling up for Shorts the past season-and-a-half or so. It's something to monitor this summer. Shorts is expected to play in the slot more in 2014.
Jul 25 - 12:27 PM

The Jaguars are hoping to fix No. 3 overall pick Blake Bortles' lower-body mechanics during his redshirt rookie year.

Per NFL Network's Albert Breer, the Jags believe Bortles was too much of an "arm thrower" at UCF, which aligns with the draftnik community's belief that his arm strength was not particularly impressive. He'll generate better torque if Jaguars coaches can get Bortles to improve his lower-body technique. Stopgap Chad Henne will open the season on a comfortably long leash.
Jul 24 - 9:18 PM

Jaguars second-round pick Allen Robinson has recovered from the hamstring injury that sidelined him this spring.

Marqise Lee is also over his ankle injury. Both rookies have a ton of opportunity for early playing time with Ace Sanders facing a four-game suspension, and Justin Blackmon's career continuing to spiral downward. With Lee (Z) and Cecil Shorts (X) likely locked in as the starters, Robinson will battle Mike Brown for action in three-wideout sets. Robinson is probably the slight favorite.

Speaking Thursday, Jaguars owner Shad Khan said the team has "no plans" to release troubled WR Justin Blackmon.

With Blackmon already indefinitely suspended, the Jags have little to gain by cutting him loose following his Wednesday marijuana arrest. Blackmon does not count toward the 90-man roster. The best time to re-evaluate Blackmon's standing with the team will be if/when he's reinstated. It's not going to happen in 2014.
Jul 24 - 1:24 PM

Suspended Jaguars WR Justin Blackmon was arrested on marijuana possession charges Wednesday night.

According to police in Edmond, Oklahoma, Blackmon was stopped for a traffic violation and officers could smell an odor of marijuana coming from the car. After a search, marijuana was found and Blackmon was taken into custody. It's the latest transgression for the Jaguars wideout, who was suspended indefinitely last October following repeated violations of the substance-abuse policy. This certainly won't help Blackmon as he aims to get reinstated for the 2015 season. Blackmon has now been suspended three times since 2010.

Tandon Doss is now expected to make the Jaguars final roster.

In the wake of Ace Sanders' four-game suspension, Doss moves up to at least fifth on the depth chart. He's also entering camp as the No. 1 punt returner.
Jul 24 - 10:08 AM

Jaguars WR Marqise Lee (ankle) said he's "pretty much cleared."

Lee missed the final chunk of the offseason program due to a sprain. He'll take it slow for a few days, but is expected to be unleashed when the pads go on for the first time Sunday. Lee is penciled in as the starter opposite Cecil Shorts.
