Jaguars Injury Report: Blake Bortles, Cecil Shorts III, Chris Clemons

By on 11/28/2014 04:45:00 PM

The Jacksonville Jaguars will have an opportunity to pick up their second win of the season when they host the New York Giants on Sunday.

Jacksonville figures to be in good health for the Week 13 matchup. No players are officially listed as out on Jacksonville's final injury report, while only two are  questionable.

The biggest name on the report is rookie quarterback Blake Bortles, who has been dealing with a sprained left wrist for the past three weeks. Bortles was not limited in practice this week and the injury is not expected to hamper him on Sunday.

Wide receiver Cecil Shorts III missed practiced on Wednesday due to an illness but is listed as probable. Shorts was able to return to full participation by Thursday.

Defensive end Chris Clemons received a regular day off on Thursday to rest a knee injury. Clemons participated in full practice the rest of the week and will play Sunday.

Backup linebackers LaRoy Reynolds (neck) and Jeremiah George (ankle) are the only two Jaguars listed as questionable. Both were able to return to limited practice by Friday and will be evaluated at game time.

Defensive end Andre Branch is expected to return after missing four games with a groin injury. Safety Josh Evans is probable with an elbow injury to round out the injury report.

Jacksonville will have one of its best chances of the year to pick up its second win against a Giants team that has lost six games in a row. The Jaguars would be in line for the first overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft if the season ended today.
