[UPDATE]: Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Marqise Lee has reportedly been diagnosed with a high-ankle sprain, but could be ready for Week 1.

Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Marqise Lee was carted off with a non-contact right leg injury during practice on Sunday, according to Michael DiRocco of ESPN.com.

Thankfully, per Ian Rapoport, Lee did not suffer a serious injury.

This would not be Lee’s first run-in with injury issues.

During his rookie campaign in 2014, Lee dealt with ankle and hamstring problems that caused him to miss three games and limited him when he was on the field.

Then, the following season, Lee’s hamstring gave him issues again, and he was forced to sit out six contests as a result.

He finally enjoyed a healthy year in 2016 and it reflected in his production, as the 25-year-old caught 63 passes for 851 yards and three touchdowns, but it looks like Lee might end up on the shelf again.

The Jaguars selected Lee, who played his college football at the University of Southern California, in the second round (39th pick overall) of the 2014 NFL Draft.

He ended up registering 37 receptions for 422 yards and a score during his injury-plagued rookie season, and the next year, Lee snared just 15 balls for 191 yards while reaching the end zone one time, once again due to injuries.

The Jaguars defeated the New England Patriots, 31-24, in their first preseason game on Thursday night.

They will play their next preseason contest this Thursday when they host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Jacksonville will open up its regular season on Sunday, Sept. 10, when it heads on the road to take on the Houston Texans.

The Jaguars won just three games last year and have not made the playoffs since the 2007 campaign.
