Joshua: Cecil Shorts is facing offseason surgery on a groin injury. The Jaguars’ leading receiver still wants to play during the two remaining games. Is that a good game or should they play it safe with one of the few playmakers on that team?

Daniel: The Jaguars should definitely rest Shorts for the remainder of the season. It’s a win-win situation for the team – Shorts gets to rest and recover for next year and the coaching staff and front office get a good look at some of the younger receivers on the team to see if they deserve a shot next year.
