Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Marqise Lee has been medically cleared to participate fully in training camp, which starts on Friday morning.

Lee was held out of OTA practices earlier this summer due to a knee injury he sustained during the offseason. But on Thursday afternoon, Gus Bradley said in his press conference that Marqise is healthy and ready to go.

The Jaguars will most likely bring Lee along slowly as he works towards full speed involvement. The last thing Marqise needs is a lingering knee issue, as he missed three games during his rookie season with a hamstring injury.

Gus Bradley spoke of Lee briefly during his Thursday press conference, stating he likes a lot about Lee’s approach this offseason and has no concerns about Lee’s ability to perform at a high level.

Still, Lee will have plenty of ground to make up during training camp as he fights to maintain his No. 2 receiver spot. Lee flashed in several occasions last season as a rookie, but will now have to work even harder to stay up to speed.

Lee will need a strong training camp to catch up to other second-year receivers Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns. But Lee has obtained 100% health, and that is certainly a great place to start.
