Sto­ry­line of the week

Jags lose Lee: WR Mar­qise Lee is out for the sea­son after in­jur­ing his knee last week­end. Lee, 26, suf­fered the in­jury in the first quar­ter of a game against the Fal­cons after tak­ing a hel­met shot from DB Da­mon­tae Kazee. The Jaguars signed WR Donte Mon­crief this off­sea­son and drafted D.J. Chark in the sec­ond round. Chark has been the Jags’ most im­pres­sive rookie in camp. WR Kee­lan Cole also had a great camp, while the team also has sec­ond-year WR Dede West­brook, a high-fly­ing player from Ok­la­homa. Head coach Doug Mar­rone did not rule out sign­ing a free agent, in­clud­ing Dez Bryant.

Rookie watch

Sixth-round QB Tan­ner Lee has strug­gled for most of the pre­sea­son. How­ever, he’ll see plenty of play­ing time against the Buc­ca­neers to try to make a last­ing im­pres­sion. The Jags are un­likely to keep three quar­ter­backs, so with Cody Kessler es­tab­lished as their No. 2, Lee ul­ti­mately will be fight­ing for a shot on the prac­tice squad.
