In a somewhat concerning development during a terrific day of practice, second year wide receiver Marqise Lee left practice favoring his leg. We later learned that he was sidelined with a hamstring injury:
Lee had just finally started seeing some time at punt returner, and looked good according to reports. We already knew Lee was going to be limited in practice heading into training camp because of an injury sustained during the OTAs earlier, and we even saw him get a day off in training camp thanks to the new GPS technology used to track a player’s workload in practice.
If Lee misses significant time in camp because of lingering injuries, it virtually assures fellow second year receiver Allen Hurns one of the two starting spots in the receiving corps. Lee already has to compete for targets this year with new acquisitions Julius Thomas and Rashad Greene, so missing time in his first full offseason with the team is somewhat concerning.
Still, it’s extremely early in training camp, so there’s no reason to be too concerned yet. One positive takeaway is Lee getting reps as a punt returner, something a lot of people were clamoring for last year.
