Jacksonville Jaguars could really use some offensive boost in the NFL Wild Card Game against the Buffalo Bills, and wide receiver Marqise Lee is ready to help. Although listed questionable, Lee, who is the team’s leading receivers, says he intends to play unless instructed otherwise.
“In my head, [I’ll] just continue to have my head up as far as me playing,” – he said. “If I had to decide, I am going to play until they decide I’m not.“
Lee suffered an ankle injury early in the game against the Houston Texans and missed the final two games of the season. During the 13 games, he had 56 receptions for 702 yards and three touchdowns. The Jags missed his presence on the field, losing both games Lee was out.
The 26-year-old WR practiced on a limited basis for the first time on Friday and will have his ankle tested on Sunday. Although he wishes to play in the Jags’ first playoff games since 2007, Lee will only do it if he thinks he can help.
“If I felt like I was going to go out there and be hurting and hurt the team, I wouldn’t do it.” – said Lee. “But I feel like I can go out there, give it my all as far as be a solid 100 percent, and go out there and just produce for the team, or just do what they need me to do as far as this point. I feel like I can go out there and do it, so I’m going to go out there and do it.“
Jacksonville Jaguars ended the season at the top of AFC South with a 10-6 record. They will have a home advantage on Sunday when they face the Bills. For the Buffalo Bills, a playoff appearance is reason enough to celebrate since it will be their first one in 17 years.
