Share/Save/Bookmark

JACKSONVILLE, Florida — Jacksonville Jaguars receiver Cecil Shorts III will miss at least two weeks with a strained right hamstring.

Shorts got the diagnosis Saturday, one day after feeling tightness in his hamstring during the team's first training camp practice.

Shorts, who has a history of injuries, says he "can't catch a break right now. My frustration level might be at an all-time high."

The fourth-year pro missed most of organized team activities with a calf injury and hasn't made it through a full season since college. He missed six games with a hamstring injury in 2011, missed two games because of a concussion in 2012 and sat out the final three games in 2013 with a groin injury that slowed him all season.
