The Jacksonville Jaguars will be without their top receiver for the second straight year.Marqise Lee will have season-ending knee surgery and be placed on injured reserve T.J. Yeldon Jersey , coach Doug Marrone said Monday.Lee, who led the team in receptions in 2017, was carted off the field Saturday night after Atlanta Falcons cornerback Damontae Kazee delivered a helmet-first hit to his knee. Tests confirmed what everyone in the stadium expected after seeing Lee’s knee buckle: The injury was clearly severe.Marrone declined to provide specifics about Lee’s injury but said the team has no plans to pursue a free-agent replacement.More Jacksonville Jaguars newsJaguars hope newcomer RB Carlos Hyde helps Blake Bortles get back on trackJaguars will be without A.J.

The team lost No. 1 receiver Allen Robinson to a knee injury in last year’s regular-season opener. Robinson signed with Chicago in free agency.Lee is nearly a lock to be back with the Jags since his $7.25 million salary in 2019 is guaranteed.The Jaguars will miss him this fall, although it’s unclear how much considering Marrone’s offensive philosophy features a smash-mouth ground attack.“It’s not something that we wanted to happen again this year,” second-year receiver Keelan Cole said. “It’s the game of football, and things happen. But it was definitely a help last year Lerentee McCray Color Rush Jersey , and knowing what to do from here is also good. It being the third game of the preseason, we get more time to figure out what we’re going to do about that.”Lee had 56 catches for 702 yards and three touchdowns last season, showing enough growth to get a four-year, $34 million contract in March that included $16.5 million guaranteed.A second-round draft pick from USC in 2014, Lee has 171 catches for 2,166 yards and eight touchdowns in four seasons.Without him, Cole, second-year pro Dede Westbrook, second-round draft pick DJ Chark and veteran Donte Moncrief will be asked to take on expanded roles.“There are people in that room that I believe will step up Corey Grant Jersey ,” Marrone said.Although the helmet-lowering hit looked dirty, several Jaguars players said it’s part of the game these days.“You can’t be mad at (Kazee),” Jaguars All-Pro cornerback Jalen Ramsey said. “You have to be mad at the NFL. Not mad at them, but that is how the rule is. People are scared to tackle normal because I guess they don’t want to do helmet-to-helmet and get flagged.”Added Cole: “It’s football. You can’t get hit high. … It’s the first (year) of it, so you can’t really say too much about it. If that rule’s been in for three years, then it’s something you’ve got to be like, ‘Maybe you did that on purpose.’ But it’s just football. There’s really nothing you can do about that. You’ve got to hit them somewhere.” The NFL released their schedules this week, so now we know exactly when the Jacksonville Jaguars will be playing the other teams for the 2019 season.

I’m not going to go through a full breakdown of the schedule, but at first glance one thing stood out to me like a sore thumb...The first six weeks of the schedule are absolutely brutal.The team opens with the Kansas City Chiefs, who is considered one of the favorites for the Super Bowl in 2019. The one benefit to the game being Week 1 is that it will probably be the healthiest you will be all season and the fact that no one has film of Nick Foles as a Jacksonville Jaguars player. The defense did fine against Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs last season, but couldn’t hold up under the poor offense and turnovers. The very next week the Jaguars travel to Houston to take on the Texans, then have a short week to meet up with the Tennessee Titans at home on Thursday Night Football. After that they head to Denver to take on Joe Flacco and the Broncos followed up with an away trip to face the Carolina Panthers and then returning home to take on the New Orleans Saints.Whew. That’s a brutal run through to start the season.
