    Texans' Cecil Shorts: One catch in playoff loss

    Shorts (hamstring) caught one of three targets for five yards in Saturday's 30-0 loss to Kansas City in the wild-card round of the playoffs. He and fellow wideout Nate Washington combined for just two catches and eight yards in the loss, but most of that can be attributed to the poor play of quarterback Brian Hoyers. Shorts was third on the Texans in targets (75), receptions (42) and yards (484), but had some difficulty staying on the field while dealing with hamstring and shoulder injuries. Shorts can be retained by the Texans for the 2016 season, but there might be a push to give Jaelen Strong a more prominent role. The team's first priority is figuring out their quarterback situation, which will obviously impact Shorts' value next season.

    Texans' Cecil Shorts: Active Saturday

    Shorts (hamstring) is active for Saturday's Wild Card game versus the Chiefs. The Texans will have its entire receiving corps intact -- also, DeAndre Hopkins (hand) and Nate Washington (hip) -- but Shorts is returning from a two-game absence to face the ninth-ranked pass defense, a combination which may not yield the desired results in the box score.

    Texans' Cecil Shorts: Could play Saturday

    Coach Bill O'Brien relayed Monday that Shorts (hamstring) "has a chance" to play in Saturday's playoff game against the Chiefs. While O'Brien fell short of declaring that he expects Shorts to play this weekend, the wideout -- who has been out since suffering his latest injury back in Week 15 -- has a chance to return to the Texans' lineup, with fellow receiver Nate Washington considered "day-to-day" with a hip injury.

    Texans' Cecil Shorts: Won't be ready for Sunday

    Texans head coach Bill O'Brien said Shorts (groin) will not be ready for Sunday's game against the Jaguars, ESPN's Tania Ganguli reports. With Shorts expected to miss a second straight week, Jaelen Strong will likely have another chance to fill in as the No. 3 wide receiver. There's very, very little chance that the result of the Houston-Jacksonville game will actually have any impact on the playoff picture, but the Texans are still expected to play their starters to be safe.

In such a scenario, Nate Washington and/or Jaelen Strong would be candidates for added looks in the Texans' Week 16 passing game behind top wideout DeAndre Hopkins.
