Cecil Shorts, who suffered a hamstring injury Friday, is not at Saturday's practice. Shorts will be out several weeks according to head coach Gus Bradley.
The always-frail Shorts will take a seat for a while, opening the door for Marqise Lee, Allen Robinson and Mike Brown. Shorts is going to still be the go-to guy, but perhaps this will help develop some separation so we can see who the true No. 2 guy will end up being. ANALYST: Howard Bender

Jake Marisnick had two hits from the bottom of the order which included a double and a run scored in Houston’s 5 -2 win over Kansas City on Thursday night. His double in the second inning with two outs kept the inning alive and Marisnick scored on a single by Jose Altuve before Yordano Ventura left the game after a rain delay in the second inning. Although Marisnick struggled in the second half, he did finish September/October with a .275 average with three home runs and seven stolen bases. Analysis: Greg Jewett
