Lee was waived by the Jaguars on Saturday, Phillip Heilman of the Athletic reports.
Lee, who was selected by the Jaguars in the sixth round of the 2018 NFL Draft, has yet to make his regular season debut and will now look to latch on elsewhere. Jacksonville may elect to sign another running back to fill the vacant roster spot, as Alfred Blue (ankle) is slated to miss the upcoming week.
The Jaguars signed Lee from their practice squad on Friday, Phillip Heilman of The Florida Times-Union reports.
Lee was drafted by the Jaguars in the sixth round of the 2018 NFL Draft, and finally finds his spot on the team's active roster. With Cody Kessler (shoulder) nursing an injury and Blake Bortles only having a precarious hold on the starting job, it wouldn't be out of the question for Lee to see offensive snaps versus the Texans on Sunday.
The Jaguars signed Lee to their practice squad Monday, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM Radio reports.
The team's sixth-round pick in April's draft, Lee was shaky during the preseason. He was a long shot to make the roster in the first place since Blake Bortles and Cody Kessler are already on the squad.
Lee completed four of eight passes for 37 yards and lost a fumble in Thursday's preseason loss to the Saints. He added two carries for eight yards.
Lee was sacked five times and fumbled twice despite playing only nine offensive snaps. The rookie sixth-round pick was unlikely to unseat Cody Kessler as the Jaguars' backup quarterback, and Thursday's effort strengthened that notion. The 25-year-old should see a higher volume of reps in coming preseason games, but he seems like a prime candidate for the practice squad, at best.
