Marqise Lee will miss entire season with knee injury

AP

It looked like Jaguars wide receiver Marqise Lee suffered a significant knee injury when he needed to be carted off the field during Saturday’s game against the Falcons and that feeling was confirmed on Monday.

Jaguars head coach Doug Marrone said that Lee will have surgery to repair the injury to his knee and miss the entire 2018 season after being placed on injured reserve.

Lee’s loss comes a little more than five months after he signed a four-year contract to remain with the team that made him a 2014 second-round pick. He caught 56 passes for 702 yards and three touchdowns last season.

Dede Westbrook, Keelan Cole, Donte Moncrief and second-round pick D.J. Chark remain on hand for the Jaguars. Mike Garafolo of NFL Media reports that Marrone said he was “comfortable” with the current group of receivers when asked if the team would consider signing Dez Bryant.

  1. Don’t expect the Jags to necessarily win that division or make the playoffs. He was their best WR and they won’t be sneaking up on people this year or benefitting from a rash of injuries elsewhere in that division.

    They are a soup du jour team for the media, but it may not last long.

    Think Arizona heading into 2006’s season.

    I literally heard a bozo panel claim they already have a good WR group and Lee isn’t a big loss.

    The delusion is enormous with the Pats Hating media. The mental illness is not curable.

  2. Use it as a positive and make it motivate you Marqise! Prayers for you that it’s a quick heal.

    I think the Jags will be ok. It’s a big loss, but hey maybe this gives Chark the chance to become a star.

    That’s what the Jags get for not paying their WRs Robinson and Hurns!!!

    ————————–

    When you’re overpaying old man Calais Campbell and you’re up the against the cap, you can’t just expect it not to hurt depth.

    It does. This is a perfect ezample.

    Campbell has had a nice career, but he shouldn’t be getting the money he is getting on the backside of his career.

    If they had just 5-6 mil more free up, they could have kept Robinson or Hurns. Campbell is making 15 mil per. It’s insanity. He should be at no more than 10 at this stage.

    The Pats had no issue handling him in the title game or in Arizona in the 2016 Week 1 opener. He made one play, which was a 1/2 yard tackle for loss. LMAO

    Another soup du jour team that is more so a flash in the pan. Throw in a mouthy CB like Ramsey, immmaturity, arrogance, etc, and voila, they could be 9-7 and out of the playoffs.

    You can’t tell me Moncrief, a Colts cast off, is a #1 WR. At best, he’s a #3 slot WR and he was a major disappointment with Luck. Bortles is not Luck.

    That doesn’t sound fun…..someone should as Lane Johnson what he thinks

    Lol, Lane and those Eagles are in your head.

    41-33 🙂

  5. The Jags have nothing to worry about because they have Jalen Ramsey. Just ask him, he will tell you how awesome he is!

  6. DollRs to donuts Jags sign another veteran WR. Marrone was specifically asked about Dez. It would be foolhardy to leave Bortles without a solid #1 WR. We’re not talking Tom Brady here – unless the Jags are writing this season off already.

    Just like the Seahawks….they will be back to mediocre soon enough….. It was a good run though.

  8. Blake Bum still has plenty of weapons left, no excuses. It’s SB or bust for the Jaguars given where they were last year.

  9. Not sure any team is going to give up a #1 caliber WR for anything less than a first rounder at this point. At best jags will be able to stockpile some low-end wr2’s that get cut this saturday.

  10. Please. Cole, Moncrief, and Westbrook are all upgrades over much the rest of the league has. Westbrook was the Belitnicoff (spelling!?) winner and Chark has superstar potential. However, Robinson make a living with the ‘jump ball’ from Blake. That is Dez’ specialty.

    BRING DEZ! He’ll make Bortles look brilliant and Ramsey will keep him in line.

  11. Don’t expect the Jags to necessarily win that division or make the playoffs. He was their best WR and they won’t be sneaking up on people this year or benefitting from a rash of injuries elsewhere in that division.

    ___________________________________

    He wasn’t even the best WR last year that was Cole. He has awful hands and drops balls all the time, trust me it’s not a loss. Heck DeDe was better then him toward the end of the season.

    It’s clear by your post you didn’t watch much Jaguars football last year.

    ^^^^^^^. Dude, this story isn’t about the Pats… Get a grip

    ————————–

    Umm, yes it is. We’ve been told Goodell somehow helped the Pats in the title game last year and how NE is fading, has lost it, etc, and by the whims and hopes of Pats Haters, the Jags are somehow on NE’s level and set to knock them off, when it’s clear the Jags got lucky Houston was ravaged by injuries and cauught NE decimated by injuries, and still lost.

    I am pointing out why depth is vital and how much BB values it, why other teams don’t get it and overspend on the market, which affects their depth.

    So, when you, or other clowns whine about the Pats being “cheap” or not paying everyone like idiots, I will absolutely make this point about a team that the media has now coined to be on NE’s level.

    So, YOU get a grip.

    Cap hell is a real thing and it affects continuity and depth. Plain and simple.

  13. “I literally heard a bozo panel claim they already have a good WR group and Lee isn’t a big loss.”

    It’s not a huge loss, but it’s a loss. Mainly because Lee was a solid blocker, and helped the running game as well. But Cole was the top receiver last year and should be better this year, Moncrief showed off what he can bring on Thursday, Westbrook’s a guy with big expectations going into just his second year, and they drafted a guy in the 2nd round. Worst case, they turn to someone like Jaydon Mickens who had a pretty good game last year when pressed into starting duty, or Rashad Greene or Shane Wynn who’ve showed the ability to make the catches to keep the ball moving down the field.

    “That’s what the Jags get for not paying their WRs Robinson and Hurns!!!”

    Hurns has also been hurt and hasn’t showed enough to be worth what they were paying him based off one good season. Dak Prescott’s not even talking about him in Dallas, which makes it sound like he’s slipping further (and as a fan of Hurns, that sucks to see). A-Rob wanted a lot of money, was coming off a torn ACL, and only got just over 800 yards the year before. A-Rob was also a small problem in that it was too tempting to chuck the ball to him and trust him to get it, which defenses keyed off on and started covering him better. Better to spend that money elsewhere.

    “When you’re overpaying old man Calais Campbell and you’re up the against the cap, you can’t just expect it not to hurt depth.”

    Campbell got 14.5 sacks last year and was a versatile part of the defense making a lot of huge plays. He’s worth it. Even more so as he’s helping train the guy who’s likely to replace him next year, Taven Bryan. Campbell might be older, but he can still play at a high level, and they’ve already got a replacement plan in place (ditto guys like Church and Parnell).

    I don’t like the injury, but I don’t think it completely derails the team. The offense is still going to be mostly about running the ball and are showing more creativity in using Fournette, Yeldon, and Grant (and using multiple running backs in a play for more mismatches). They brought in ASJ who should finally give a decent target at TE to help allow for more ways to get the ball down the field. Cole and Westbrook looked promising as rookies, and should only get better, while Chark’s flashed some skill and should progress as the year goes along.

    It sucks, but heck, the Jags lost A-Rob right off the bat last year, and still were one half of conservative football, a blown defensive play, and/or a bad ruling away from going to the Super Bowl. They can withstand the loss of Lee. (Heck, they were without Lee and/or Hurns at a lot of points last year, too.)

  14. At least this happened before everyone got down to their 53….plenty of in shape, decent WR will pass through the waiver wire..not everybody carrys 7 WR’s..so Tom C will find at least one. He will also grab a TE to shore up the pass catching game.

  15. Jag Nation will rise to newer heights … Cole , Moncrief, Chark , Westbrook ,Mickens and Green and ASJ can handle the work load. We won’t miss a beat , the Jag Train is full steam ahead straight to that Superbowl ! Book it baby !!!

    Don’t blame the rules. Blame the tacklers. If they wrap up and tackle properly half of these injuries wouldn’t happen.
    ———–
    The refs don’t even know what a catch is, and you are hoping the refs know what a tackle or sack is?

  17. Gonna be a blood bath at MetLife come first game of the year…..Hope Ramsey doesnt start pulling out excuses…..Plus Bortles already looks like hes in mid season form lmao…..

  18. I’m not a jags fan,but I did see enough of them last season to realize this isn’t a huge loss. They are a run-first, defensive minded team with a crowded WR group, this will lead to Dede Westbrook, a better all around receiver and Keelan Cole, more of a big play threat to take center stage. Cole just shot up from round 13/14(maybe) to round 11 for me, kid has talent!

  19. Hate to see these kinds of things happen due to dirty hits.

    Part of me wants to see anyone causing injury with a dirty hit be suspended for as long as the injured player is out.

    And the poor defenders cry about the rules making things so hard. Don’t hit the head or the knees, it’s very simple!

  20. As a Jags fan, this is a net gain for the team. Never want to see anyone injured, but Lee was never a true starting WR. His presence holds back a very talented group and now they will be on the field more. Cole and Westbrook are already better than Lee, Chark is not far behind and brings a size and speed threat that Lee doesn’t have. I will be glad to see these guys on the field more. The only reason Lee was starting is that Old Man Coughlin and Wannabe Old Man Marrone have a thing for veteran players. Sure, Coles and Westbrook might make more mistakes than Lee, but they will make a lot more plays than him too.

  21. Dez Bryant is more likely to lead Ramsey astray than Ramsey is to keep him in line. Why hire a guy with the potential to fracture the team?

    That sucks. Let’s all thank Roger Baddell for this one.

    Why? Why would you thank the Commissioner for Lee getting hurt? Because…preseason football hasn’t been around for decades? So it must be his decision to have implemented it? Because fans don’t pay to watch it? Or watch it reasonably enthusiastically on TV? Sometimes I seriously don’t get the logic.
