Marqise Lee made it to the second day of training camp before the Jacksonville Jaguars held him out with a hamstring injury.

In what has become an annual offseason tradition, Lee was held out of Friday's practice. Lee sat out most of his rookie OTAs because of an ankle injury and missed OTAs and minicamp in 2015 due to a knee injury.

Although Lee has missed a handful of games (nine in the last two seasons) it's the missed practices leading up to the season that are the main cause of concern. Without the preparation in OTAs and training camp, he's largely ineffective when it comes game time because he's playing catch up for the first half of the season.

In 10 games last year, Lee had just 15 receptions for 197 yards and one touchdown. He averages just 2.3 receptions, 26.7 yards, and 0.1 touchdowns per game since being selected in the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft.
