Jags Beat: Marquis Lee 'one setback' from IR

ESPN - [Full Article]

It's understandable that fans are frustrated with Jags WR Marquis Lee's hamstring injury, but so are the Jaguars and Lee. The second-year player from USC has played in less than two games and only participated in five full practices this season, and he is pretty close to finding himself placed on injured reserve.

The Jaguars didn't take Lee to London this week, and their plan is for him to continue receiving treatment throughout the bye week so he will be able to return to the field for the Nov. 8 game at the New York Jets. However, a source has told me that he is one setback -- whether it's a tweak or tightness of the hamstring or some other injury -- from landing on IR, which is why the Jaguars are being so cautious.

Fantasy Impact: 

The Jaguars don't know why Lee is having so many issues with soft-tissue injuries. One theory is that he's a lot like former Jaguars receiver Cecil Shorts from the standpoint that they work so hard during the season and offseason that they don't give their body the proper time to rest and reset, and the continuous strain results in one soft-tissue injury after the other. At this point, Lee would have a tough time passing Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns for fantasy relevance.
