Jags WR Lee carted off; Fournette has sore foot

From ESPN - August 13, 2017

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Jaguars receiver Marqise Lee suffered what appeared to be a serious injury to his right leg late in Sunday's practice, the first day the team held an entire session in its brand new indoor practice facility.

Jaguars coach Doug Marrone said immediately after practice he was not sure of the extent of Lee's injury.

Lee was running a route in the middle of the field during 7-on-7 drills when he fell to the ground and immediately grabbed his right leg. Linebacker Telvin Smith, who was covering Lee, immediately called for trainers.

Lee's lower right leg was placed in an air cast and he was taken from the field on a cart.

"I know they were touching around in the lower part of him, but you are really not going to get anything until the doctor sees him," Marrone said.

In addition, running back Leonard Fournette missed practice with a foot injury, but the team said his absence was precautionary. Marrone said he did not believe that Fournette's foot injury was serious, but did admit that it had been something that Fournette has been dealing with for some time.

The team has been monitoring Fournette's condition but he had not missed a practice in training camp. Marrone said the decision was made to hold him out of Sunday's practice, when Fournette complained of soreness.
