JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Jacksonville Jaguars receiver Cecil Shorts III is practicing again after a two-week hiatus.


Shorts strained his left calf Aug. 5 in training camp and sat out the first two preseason games.


He was medically cleared to practice Monday and back on the field Tuesday, taking part in every drill. Shorts is expected to make his preseason debut Saturday night against Philadelphia.


Shorts caught 55 passes for 979 yards and seven touchdowns in 14 games last season. He missed the final two games because of a concussion.


He averaged 17.8 yards a catch, which set a team record and ranked second in the NFL.


With fellow receiver Justin Blackmon suspended four games for violating the league's substance-abuse policy, the Jaguars are counting on more from Shorts in his third season.
