Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Marqise Lee has reportedly been diagnosed with a high-ankle sprain and will likely miss the season opener as these injuries typically take 4-6 weeks to heal and get back on the practice field.

Lee was initially carted off the field in Sunday’s practice inside the indoor practice facility at Daily’s Place, the first time the team has utilized the facility. In a non-contact drill, Lee went down and immediately grabbed his leg as linebacker Telvin Smith waved over the medical staff.

Lee has a history with injuries throughout his career, in the NFL mostly being nagging soft tissue type of injuries, but the fact that an air cast was put on could mean it’s a bit more serious of an injury and potentially even a break, which could keep him out for weeks.
