The season hasn't even started and the Jacksonville Jaguars are already in a big hole at wide receiver.
Things didn't look good during their last preseason matchup as top wideout Marqise Lee was carted off the field in tears. The team was hoping for good news but certainly didn't get any with this update.
Lee is officially out for the year, opening up the door for other Jaguars to step up.
BREAKING NEWS: It's official. Marqise Lee is out for the year. He will require knee surgery due to ligament damage. Big boost to Keenan Cole & Dede Westbrook. Not sold on Donte Moncrief.— Scout Fantasy Sports (@ScoutFantasy) August 27, 2018
Lee's not viewed as a top wideout in the league, but he was exactly that for Jacksonville last season. He finished last season with 56 catches for 702 yards and three touchdowns in 14 games and quickly emerged as the top option for QB Blake Bortles in an improved passing attack.
Lee leaves behind big shoes to fill, but that still doesn't mean the Jaguars are looking for outside help to fill them.
It's definitely a shame for Jacksonville and fantasy owners alike.
