JACKSONVILLE – Day 14 brought a change in venue – and a lot of news.
It also brought a tough day for the Jaguars, with wide receiver Marqise Lee sustaining what appeared to be a lower leg injury late during the 14th practice of Jaguars 2017 Training Camp.
Lee, a fourth-year veteran who had the best season of his career in 2016, appeared to injure his right leg while running a route late in practice. He was surrounded for several minutes by trainers, who – along with wide receiver Allen Hurns – lifted him into a cart that took him from the field.
Sunday's practice was the Jaguars' first in the newly-completed Daily's Place Flex Field adjacent to EverBank Field. The Jaguars worked for about two hours inside the indoor facility in temperatures of 75 degrees. The temperature outside was 89 degrees.
Also on Sunday, rookie running back Leonard Fournette missed his first practice of training camp with an ankle injury.
"Leonard has a foot injury," Jaguars Head Coach Doug Marrone said. "We're just being real cautious with it."
In other news of significance, Paul Posluszny took first-team repetitions at middle linebacker in base situations for the first time in this year's camp. The team had moved second-year linebacker Myles Jack from the strong side to the middle during the offseason; Posluszny had started at middle linebacker for the Jaguars since 2011.
We'll have more on Posluszny's work in the middle in Day 14 notes and observations on jaguars.com Sunday.
Also, backup quarterback Chad Henne took repetitions with the first team during the last half of practice. This was the first time Henne had taken first-team reps in camp. Marrone said after practice Henne took the repetitions to rest starter Blake Bortles' arm.
"We were looking at the pitch count after yesterday," Marrone said of Bortles. "We came in today and we said, 'Hey, let's rest him.''
Hurns returned to practice Sunday after missing Thursday's preseason opener with an undisclosed injury. He left a dual practice against the Patriots last week and was still out as of Saturday's work. He did not work in team drills Sunday.
