Jaguars top Falcons 17-6 but top receiver Lee hurt

Quarterback Blake Bortles, in what is expected to be his final tuneup for the NFL regular season, completed 17 of 23 passes for 204 yards, leading host Jacksonville to a 17-6 victory against Atlanta on Saturday night.

The Jaguars (2-1) also received 57 yards on 10 carries from running back Leonard Fournette, who scored one touchdown.

Jacksonville wide receiver Marqise Lee left the game in the first quarter with a gruesome knee injury after he was hit low by Atlanta safety Damontae Kazee, who was penalized on the play.

Lee, the Jaguars’ top receiver who had 56 catches for 702 yards and three touchdowns in 2017, might be lost for the season, according to multiple reports.

The receiver, a second-round pick from Southern California in 2014, signed a four-year, $34 million contract in March that included $16.5 million guaranteed. Lee has 171 catches for 2,166 yards and eight touchdowns in his career.

Quarterback Matt Ryan completed 5 of 12 passes for 57 yards for the Falcons (0-3).
