Andrew McCutchen left game with left rib discomfort. He will be treated and re-evaluated, per the team.
McCutchen had broken his rib a few weeks ago after being hit by a pitch but spent just the minimum 15 days on the DL before returning. This could end up being bad news not just for the Pirates but McCutchen fantasy owners as playoffs are nearing. ANALYST: Jonathan Impemba
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.
