Marqise Lee held out of Jags minicamp due to knee injury

BY foxsports • June 17, 2015

The knee injury that sidelined Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Marqise Lee for all of OTAs will also keep him out of the team's three-day minicamp this week.

Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley said the team is holding the second-year receiver out as a precaution, but that Lee would have practiced had this been the regular season. Lee is dealing with an injury to his left knee.

"If I had the choice to go I'd be going," Lee said, via ESPN's Mike DiRocco. "I haven't been in OTAs all summer. We've got three practices and they want to keep me out for the three practices. No reason to try to come back and do anything. As long as I take the mental reps and stay on top of my plays I'll be OK."

The second-year wide receiver out of USC is expected to be ready to go for training camp later summer.  The knee problem is the latest injury in Lee's short professional career.  He missed part of OTAs last season with an ankle injury and sat out three games during the regular season with a hamstring injury.

Lee, taken in the second round of the 2014 draft, caught 37 passes for 422 yards and a touchdown as a rookie.
