Marqise Lee missed the last two games of the regular season, both of which the Jaguars lost. He's been battling through injuries for much of the season, but wasn't forced to miss time until the tail end of the season.
Through the first 14 games of the season Lee was the clear go to receiver for QB Blake Bortles. He lead the league in drops during the 2017 season, but was an asset on offense to be sure. Lee finished the regular season with 56 receptions for 702 yards and three scores.
On Friday, for the first time in a couple weeks, Lee returned to practice. Even before his returning to practice Lee was expected to play on Sunday, but his return comes at a crucial time.
The Jaguars ready for their first playoff game since 2007 and their first home playoff game since 1999. Blake Bortles needs all the help he can get from the receiving corp. Last week his trio of young receivers had a miserable performance. But with the return of Marqise Lee some pressure should be taken off of Keelan Cole, Dede Westbrook, and Jaydon Mickens, all of whom have had breakout games in 2017.
The Jaguars receiving corp will be as complete as it has been in some time this week. Allen Hurns and Marqise Lee will need to lead this group and play strong ball in order for the Jaguars offense to get going again in the playoffs.
Stay tuned for more!
