Shorts, Brewster have surgery
By Michael DiRocco
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Jaguars receiver Cecil Shorts and guard Mike Brewster both had surgery over the last two days for their season-ending injuries.
Coach Gus Bradley said Shorts had sports hernia surgery Thursday morning and Brewster had surgery Wednesday to repair the fractured left ankle he suffered in last Sunday's 27-20 loss to Buffalo.
"I guess it turned out pretty good," Bradley said. "I'll find out more from [trainer] Mike [Ryan] but it's good that we got those guys taken care of as soon as possible."
In other injury news, safety Johnathan Cyprien (thigh), running back Maurice Jones-Drew (hamstring) and linebacker Geno Hayes (knee) missed their second consecutive day of practice. Bradley said the plan remains for Jones-Drew to test his hamstring Friday.
