Cecil Shorts III and Maurice Jones-Drew likely out vs. Bills



Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew is unlikely to play in the team’s Week 15 matchup against the Buffalo Bills, along with wide receiver Cecil Shorts III:


ESPN’s Adam Schefter also reports Shorts will not play today, and it will be his first missed game of the 2013 season, due to a lingering groin injury that’s been plaguing him for multiple weeks.

Jones-Drew is dealing with a hamstring injury he sustained in Week 14 against the Houston Texans. He has three games remaining on a five-year, $31 million contract he signed in 2009. He’s earning $4.95 million this season, but wants to be back in Jacksonville next year.

This is one less game he’ll have to show he deserves to remain there getting paid the kid of money he’ll demand this offseason.
