The Texans have released WR Cecil Shorts. The 28-year-old was buried on the depth chart and not worth the $1.2 million he was set to make this season. He figures to latch on elsewhere but is off the fantasy radar. Houston is set to roll with DeAndre Hopkins, Will Fuller, Braxton Miller and Jaelen Strong as its top 4 WRs.

Recent Shark Bites

The Bucs believe that WR Cecil Shorts dislocated and tore multiple ligaments in his knee in Sunday's game against the Chargers. The injury looked serious when it happened. Shorts is done for the season. Turning 29 in a few weeks, he's still never made it through a full 16-game season.

Bucs WR Cecil Shorts will start in place of Vincent Jackson (knee) against the 49ers on Sunday, HC Dirk Koetter said. Shorts has 1 catch on 2 targets through 2 outings this season. His production will obviously climb now, but probably not enough to put him on the fantasy radar. WR Adam Humphries -- who will maintain his slot role -- and TE Cameron Brate are better bets to benefit from Jackson's absence.

Texans WRs Cecil Shorts (hamstring) and Nate Washington (hip) are active for today’s game against Kansas City.  Houston enters this matchup at full strength, but we still expect a low-scoring contest between two strong defenses.  The Vegas over/under for this game is hovering around 39.5.

Texans WR Cecil Shorts (hamstring) put in a full practice on Thursday.  He's good to go for Saturday's game against the Chiefs but will only be a fantasy consideration if WR Nate Washington (hip) is out.  Washington returned to a limited practice on Thursday and seems 50/50 to play this weekend.

Texans WR Cecil Shorts (hamstring) said after Sunday's regular-season finale that he expects to be back for the playoff opener against the Chiefs.  “Now, it’s go-time,” he said. “Now, it’s a whole new season. The slates are clean. Everything is 0-0. Gotta get it going.”  Shorts' health has taken on increased importance with WR Nate Washington injuring his hip yesterday.  That forced rookie Jaelen Strong into the #2 WR role.
