JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- While at EverBank Field for an interview with Jacksonville Jaguars General Manager and St. Francis High grad David Caldwell, I was able to attend Gus Bradley's final injury update for Sunday's game here against the Buffalo Bills.
Bradley declared star running back Maurice Jones-Drew (hamstring) and starting rookie strong safety Johnathan Cyprien (thigh) are doubtful, while top receiver Cecil Shorts (groin) is questionable.
"It doesn't look good for either" Jones-Drew or Cyprien, Bradley said. "But we still have some time. We'll use that time so in case on Sunday morning we can work them out. I just want them to compete competing to get better in the training room. So we'll see then."
Jones Drew has 719 rushing yards, 239 receiving yards and five touchdowns.
Shorts was limited in today's practice and also is considered a game-time decision. He has a team-high 66 receptions for 777 yards and three touchdowns.
"We got him just enough reps to see where he was at and challenge it somewhat," Bradley said of Shorts' injury. "We just said, 'OK, that's good. Now let's just wait and see on Sunday.' "
The Jaguars also released sixth-year defensive end Jeremy Mincey this morning. The previous front office gave Mincey a four-year, $20 million contract last year. He'd been benched for missing team meetings.
