X-rays on Lee's ankle were negative, and he's scheduled for an MRI on Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Lee was removed from Sunday's 45-7 win over the Texans in the first quarter, needing help from two trainers to leave the field. The negative X-rays don't necessarily rule out a long-term injury, as he could still be diagnosed with a severe sprain. With Allen Hurns (ankle) already sidelined, the Jaguars relied on Keelan Cole, Jaydon Mickens and Dede Westbrook at wide receiver in Sunday's blowout victory. Cole was one of the breakout stars of Week 15, catching seven of nine targets for 186 yards and a touchdown against a weak Houston secondary. Cole and Westbrook likely would start in Week 16 against the 49ers if both Lee and Hurns were to miss the contest.
Lee was forced out of Sunday's game against the Texans with a right ankle injury.
Lee was unable to return to the field after suffering his injury in the first quarter of the contest. With Allen Hurns still sidelined and Lee knocked out of Sunday's game, fellow receivers Keelan Cole and Jaydon Mickens stepped up at wideout for the Jaguars in Week 15.
Lee exited Sunday's game against the Texans with a right ankle injury and is questionable to return, Ryan O'Halloran of The Florida Times-Union reports.
Lee needed assistance from two trainers to leave the field, so it's possible that he might be done for the day. The wideout didn't record a catch before departing, so fantasy owners counting on him in DFS contests or playoff lineups will hope that he's able to recuperate on the sideline and return later in the contest. If Lee is unable to return, however, Dede Westbrook and Keelan Cole would rank as the Jaguars' primary wideouts.
Lee (foot) was a limited participant in practice Friday and doesn't carry a designation for Sunday's game against the Texans.
Lee was never able to put in a full practice this week, but because the Jaguars have restricted his practice reps throughout the season, he never seemed to be at any real risk of missing action. The wideout should be in line for a full slate of snaps in Sunday's game against the Texans and will look to avenge his poor showing versus Houston in the season opener, when he was held without a catch for the only time in 2017.
Lee (foot) was a limited participant during Thursday's practice.
As has been the case for most of the season, the Jaguars are content to regularly manage Lee's practice reps to preserve his health, so his limited session Thursday shouldn't concern fantasy owners heading into the wideout's Week 15 matchup with the Texans. After being held to one reception for 13 yards in a loss to the Cardinals in Week 12, Lee has bounced back with 12 catches for 151 yards and a touchdown over Jacksonville's last two contests.
