Hanley Ramirez and Juan Uribe took BP in a regular group Wednesday. Thursday, they're taking BP early with manager Don Mattingly watching.
Hanley landed on the DL with an obilque strain however the injury was believed to be minor and that he would only need to serve the minimum days before being activated. Uribe has been on the DL since August 16th after re-injuring his hamstring for the third time this season.ANALYST: Jonathan Impemba
Julio Jones did not practice Monday.
Jones is still dealing with a lingering hamstring injury and while he was able to play Sunday, there is concern this week with the short turnaround for the Thursday game. Consider him day-to-day and stay on top of all the latest news before making your final lineup decision. Analysis: Howard Bender
Cecil Shorts thinks he'll play against Jacksonville.
Shorts missed Thursday's game with a shoulder injury but both he and the team believe that he will be able to play this week. With DeAndre Hopkins being the clear-cut No. 1 and with the emergence of Jalen Strong and Keith Mumphrey, it's difficult to see Shorts getting enough work to be a productive fantasy play. He'll still see a few targets if he's on the field, but he'll be hit-or-miss. Analysis: Howard Bender
