Jeff Samardzija threw 66 pitches over four innings in a “B” game on the backfield against the Rangers and survived.
“They like to hit the fastball in the Minor Leagues,” said Samardzija, who served up a home run among the six hits.
His slider, which was “garbage” in his last outing, was “very good today.”
Marqise Lee is not practicing Thursday.
Lee missed practice Wednesday and now Thursday with the same ol' hamstring problem he's been dealing with for some time. He can be an incredible talent but he just can't stay healthy. With Allen Hurns and Allen Robinson available, the Jags can afford to wait on him, but fantasy owners should probably move on from him. Analysis: Howard Bender
Sean Lee (concussion) is at practice Thursday.
While Lee was on the field and stretching with his teammates, he still has not been given the green light by the league's concussion protocol. He will be limited to individual work on the sidelines if he doesn't receive clearance and his status for Week 5 remains in question. Analysis: Howard Bender
