Report: Jaguars WR Lee to return vs. Bills

Jan 4, 2018 - 4:32 PM The Jacksonville Jaguars are expected to see a familiar face return to action for Sunday's playoff game against the Buffalo Bills.

Wide receiver Marqise Lee is in line to return from a two-game absence due to an injured ankle, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Thursday morning.

Lee sat out of practice on Wednesday and could remain on the sideline all week before playing versus the Bills (9-7) on Sunday (1:05 p.m.).

"You're going to ask me if I'm thinking about Sunday and playing; I think I'll be out there, but I can't tell you what the coaches and the trainers are going to decide," Lee said, per ESPN. "From my standpoint, I believe I should be fine and be out there."

Lee leads the Jaguars (10-6) with 56 receptions despite injuring his ankle in the first quarter of Jacksonville's win over the Houston Texans on Dec. 17. The 26-year-old finished second on the team with 702 receiving yards and had three touchdowns this season.

Lee had at least five catches in five of the previous six games before his injury.

Rookies Keelan Cole and Dede Westbrook and first-year player Jaydon Mickens have stepped up in Lee's absence.
