Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Marqise Lee, who played 12 snaps last week after missing all of 2018, was downgraded to out because of a knee injury.

Cornerback A.J. Bouye also was downgraded to out ahead of Sunday’s game at the Houston Texans.

Lee, who sustained a torn ACL during the Jaguars’ third preseason game on Aug. 25, 2018, was listed as questionable earlier this week after failing to catch a pass in the opening loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.

Lee, 27, was the Jaguars’ leading receiver in 2017, catching 56 passes for 702 yards and three touchdowns in 14 games. In his first four seasons, he had 171 receptions for 2,166 yards and eight scores.

Rookie quarterback Gardner Minshew II will be making his first start for the Jaguars (0-1). He entered in relief of Nick Foles (broken collarbone) last week and completed 22 of 25 for 275 yards, with two touchdowns and one interception.
