Lee showed a little bit of everything offensively this week. First it was the power:

Then it was the finesse with this beautiful toe tap for a touchdown:

Unfortunately for Lee, it wasn’t all good news this week. He suffered an injury in the second quarter, which was thought to be a rib issue, but decided to play through the pain. Turns out, it was more severe than a rib issue, which can be played through provided the pain is tolerable.
