Clayton Kershaw will be placed on a rehab that includes a submaximal throwing program for the next 2-3 weeks. He will then be re-evaluated by Dr. Neal ElAttrache to determine when he can start throwing at increased velocity.
Not the news fantasy owners were hopeful for, but at least you now have a better idea of what is exactly going with the reigning CY Young award winner. Unfortunately "what it looks like" is that Kershaw will be for an extended period of time with the earliest being some time in May.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Cecil Shorts might be ready to play against Jacksonville in Week 6.
Both Shorts and Nate Washington missed Thursday's game, making way for Jaelen Strong and Keith Mumphery. While strong caught two TDs, Mumphery was a non-factor. Strong earned himself more playing time in the coming weeks, possibly coming at Shorts' expense, though it could come at Washington's as coach Bill O'Brien said that Shorts had a better chance of playing against Jacksonville than Washington does.
