JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The Jacksonville Jaguars are unsure whether receiver Marqise Lee will play Sunday at Pittsburgh. Lee (ribs) is listed as questionable on the injury report.

Lee practiced in a limited capacity Friday after sitting out the previous two days, but coach Doug Marrone made no guarantees about his availability against the Steelers. Marrone says "obviously we were able to work him out, get him out there and take some reps. That's always encouraging."
Not having Lee would be a big blow for a Jaguars receiver group that is already struggling without Allen Robinson, who sustained a season-ending knee injury in the opener. Lee is tied for the NFL lead with four drops. Allen Hurns is averaging a career-low 11.6 yards a catch. And rookie Keelan Cole has just four receptions on 15 targets. Through four games the Jaguars have the 30th ranked passing offense in the NFL. \

Linder was limited during practice on Thursday and Friday. Saturday afternoon the Jaguars ruled him and wide receiver Jaelen Strong out for Sunday's game against Pittsburgh.
