Jaguars’ Marqise Lee Thought His Season Was Over With Broken Leg
In fact, Lee thought that, due to the intense pain, he had broken his leg and that his season was over before it even started.
“It happened so fast,” Lee said (h/t ESPN).
“The next thing I remember, I just had a pain.
“The first time it actually happened, everything did flash by. And then as I sat there my whole time just was, ‘When is the pain going to go away?’”
What was initially feared as a break was proven to be a sprain and Lee is confident he will be ready for the regular season opener.
“I’m pretty confident I’ll be fine,” Lee said.
“I can’t make a move without the trainers and the coaches. It’s their decision, but I’m going to go ahead and jump in. I think I’ll be fine by Game 1. Doing everything possible to be ready by Game 1. That’s all I really can control, so I’m just going to do that.”
Lee’s fears are understand has he has missed considerable time in the past with injuries, but when Lee is healthy and on the field he has proven to be productive.
With all the question marks at quarterback circulating in Jacksonville, the Jags need Lee 100% to give the team a chance this season.
“The situation is what it is, but at the end of the day, you still have to stay positive and find positive ways out of it,” Lee said.
“That’s just me basically staying in tune and continuing to learn my plays and seeing what I see and learning off of that.”
