The Jacksonville Jaguars today waived wide receiver Kevin Lee, who was signed by the team on July 7 after playing this year for the Rhein Fire in the NFL Europe League.
Lee, 27, was originally drafted by the New England Patriots in the second round (35th overall) of the 1994 draft. He spent the 1994 season on injured reserve with a broken jaw and then played in seven games with two starts in 1995, catching eight passes for 107 yards. In 1996, Lee played in two games with the San Francisco 49ers after being waived by the Patriots during training camp.
JAGUARS HOLD TWO PRACTICES
The Jaguars held two more practices today at Ferrell Fields. Four players were held out due to injuries: C Michael Cheever (back), G Jeff Novak (leg), DT Kelvin Pritchett (elbow) and LB Tyrone Hines (knee), while LB Bryce Paup (groin), LB Tom McManus (knee) and DT Don Davey (knee) each worked one session. OL Todd Fordham suffered a sprained ankle in the morning practice and was held out in the afternoon.
Coach Tom Coughlin commented on the shuffling of the offensive line. "Our second group of offensive linemen is getting chopped up by some injuries," he said. "We've had the untimely injury to Jeff Novak, Michael Cheever is missing, and hopefully Todd Fordham won't miss a lot of time. It means players have to play different positions, and it is not a good situation from a continuity standpoint."
Two-a-days will continue Wednesday, with practices scheduled for 8:40 a.m. and 3:20 p.m. at Ferrell Fields. The team will have a closed walk-through on Thursday in preparation for the preseason home opener at 8:00 p.m. Friday against the New York Giants. Friday's game will be televised on WTLV-12.
