Sideline route on play by play Topic

Kinda of a wierd question, but on the play by play description of plays run during a game, what would you consider the distance on a sideline route. For example, sometimes a description may be : Edward Keys completes a pass right sideline to Donald Caldwell for 28 yards (Dan Maxwell).  Does this mean short right behind line of scrimmage, short medium, deep? When there is a short pass the description will say short right, short middle, etc. And on deep routes it may say deep middle, etc. Any opinions...just curious thx?

In the Yatzr Game analyzer, it lists the pass distance as "Medium" on sideline passes or passes across the middle unless specified as "Deep Middle" or "Long Left or Right"
