Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Marqise Lee will now miss an additional two weeks as he's trying to get healthy from a pulled hamstring during the first week of training camp.
Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley is staying positive with the diagnosis.
“Well, everything I hear, he’s making really good progress," Bradley said. "Where you’re hoping for four weeks, could be six to eight or somewhere in there. Everything now is back to where it’s four weeks to where it’s leaning more towards that, so it’s a good sign.”
Sources tell JagsInisder.com that the team is concerned about Lee and although they wouldn't go as far as saying that they regretted taking him in the second round, they "were expecting him to be a little further along by now."
After a pretty spectacular college career at USC, Lee was drafted to stretch opposing defenses and be a real go-to guy. After a rookie season which saw him catch just 37 passes, for 422 yards and one touchdown, Lee is certainly behind the curve from what was an unbelievable 2014 rookie draft class at wide receiver.
Lee's Jaguars teammate Allen Robinson, Philadelphia Eagles' Jordan Matthews, Green Bay Packers' Davante Adams, Miami Dolphins' Jarvis Landry, Indianapolis Colts' Donte Moncrief, Arizona Cardinals' John Brown and Pittsburgh Steelers' wide receiver Martavis Bryant were all selected after Lee in the 2014 NFL Draft and have shown just as much, if not more than the talented, yet hobbled second-year Jaguar.
It's far too early to call Lee a bust and this hamstring injury may heal and not have any effect on his 2015 season.
He might have to bounce back and play well if he's going to have a roster spot in Jacksonville in 2016.
