Jags coach Doug Marrone said Saturday (via Hays Carlyon of 1010 XL AM, on Twitter) that Lee and Robinson might not be ready by Week 1. After offseasons spent rehabbing their respective ACL tears, each remains on Jacksonville’s active/PUP list.
Were Robinson and Lee to land on the team’s reserve/PUP list, each would be sidelined at least six regular-season weeks. It is not certain either is bound for that designation, however.
Robinson went down in September 2018, halting his progress after ascending quickly into Jacksonville’s starting lineup as a rookie. Lee posted two 700-yard receiving seasons with the Jags and re-signed for four years and $38M ($18MM guaranteed) during the offseason as receivers Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns departed.
Lee, 27, was not expected to return until at least late in training camp, so the former second-round pick being a Week 1 question mark is not surprising. It is a bit of a blow to a Jags pass-catching corps that already faces questions.
The Jags drafted tackle Jawaan Taylor in the second round, but their optimal lineup would place the Florida alum at right tackle opposite Robinson. The team signed former Bengals first-rounder Cedric Ogbuehi and ex-Bucs undrfated free agent Leonard Wester this offseason to add depth to the offensive line.
