Brian McCann is not in the Yankees' starting lineup on Friday.
After seven-straight games of squatting behind the dish and a lefty on the hill for Boston, this seems like as good a time to give McCann a rest as any. He'll be available off the bench if needed, but Francisco Cervelli will get the start here.ANALYST: Howard Bender
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.
