Jaguars WR Marqise Lee once again suffered hamstring injury. However, he doesn’t think this setback isn’t anything serious.

“I got the opportunity to sit back, slow it down and put the process it,” Lee said, via the Florida Times Union. “It ain’t like we play tomorrow. I’ve got some time.”


According to former Redskins TE Chris Cooley, GM Scot McCloughan injured his hand after he received the injury news about first-round WR Josh Doctson, who suffered an Achilles’ injury.

I said, ‘What happened to your hand?’” Cooley said, via “He said, when I found out about Doctson – which they thought was going to be much worse, the Doctson injury, apparently it isn’t going to be as bad – I punched the wall.”

  • The Redskins are activating LB Perry Riley off of the PUP list.
