Jaguars receiver Cecil Shorts won’t play Sunday against the visiting Buffalo Bills because of a groin injury that had him listed as questionable entering the weekend, a league source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

Running back Maurice Jones-Drew, who was listed as doubtful, will test his hamstring pregame to see if he can play, the source told Schefter.

Shorts is facing offseason surgery for the injury but had said after getting the results of an MRI exam Thursday that he will try to play in the team’s final three games.

Shorts, who leads the Jaguars in receptions with 66 and receiving yards with 777, practiced Friday on a limited basis and had said he was going to try to play.

Shorts has been battling the injury for much of the season and has managed it by not practicing on Wednesdays and being limited on Thursdays. That schedule was thrown off last week because the Jaguars played Houston on Thursday night, and there wasn’t sufficient time to rest his groin from the previous Sunday’s game against Cleveland.

ESPN.com Jaguars reporter Michael DiRocco contributed to this report.
