Jaguars placed TE Marcedes Lewis (ankle) on injured reserve/designated to return.
Lewis suffered a severe high-ankle sprain in Sunday's loss to the Redskins. He'll be first eligible to return in Week 12, as the Jaguars are on bye in Week 11. Lewis is wholly droppable in 14-team leagues. Lewis' backup, Clay Harbor, is still recovering from a long-term calf injury, and is questionable for Week 3. Journeyman Mickey Shuler is the next man up on the depth chart. The Jags have also promoted TE Marcel Jensen from the practice squad. Sep 16 - 2:27 PM

Jaguars TE Marcedes Lewis (ankle) will be out 6-8 weeks.

Lewis is now a candidate for injured reserve with a designation to return. It's a tough pill to swallow for the Jags, who were already lacking weapons and now lose a security blanket in the pass game. It's also more bad news for a woeful offensive line, as Lewis has the ability to be a difference-maker as a blocker.
Sep 15 - 12:57 PM

Marcedes Lewis left Sunday's Week 2 game against the Redskins in the third quarter with a high-ankle sprain.

Late in the second quarter, Lewis split wide and took advantage of a horrible angle by Redskins S Baccari Rambo to score a 69-yard touchdown. But in the third quarter, he had to limp off and is done for the day. Lewis finishes with a 2-71-1 line.
Sep 14 - 3:06 PM

Marcedes Lewis (hamstring) is probable Week 2.

Lewis will be a low-end TE2 for Sunday's game. He had six catches for 35 yards on nine targets in Week 1.
Sep 12 - 8:01 PM

Marcedes Lewis (hamstring) was upgraded to "full" in Thursday's practice.

Lewis is now fully on track to suit up against the Redskins. He'll be on the TE2 borderline.
Sep 11 - 3:35 PM

Marcedes Lewis (hamstring) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Lewis is a key part of the Jaguars' rushing attack as an extra blocker. His contributions to the offense rarely show up in the box score as a low-end TE2.
Sep 10 - 3:43 PM

Jaguars TE Marcedes Lewis has a "knee capsule injury," but is expected to be active for Week 2 against the Redskins.

Lewis caught 6-of-9 targets for 35 yards in Sunday's opener, but will likely settle into the 4-6 target range. He's a low-end TE2.
Sep 8 - 3:46 PM

Marcedes Lewis caught six passes for 35 yards in Sunday's Week 1 loss at Philadelphia.

Lewis was the preferred target on low-upside bootlegs, finishing with nine passes coming his way. We'd be surprised if he ends up with that many targets again all year. An excellent blocker but plodding runner, Lewis is barely on the TE2 radar.
Sep 7 - 6:10 PM

Marcedes Lewis had two catches for 45 yards in Friday night's preseason game.

He was targeted twice in the passing game. Lewis is a critical part of the Jaguars' offense as a blocker, and should provide Chad Henne with a red-zone option. He has a six catches for 100 yards in three preseason games. Lewis should go undrafted in fantasy leagues.
Aug 23 - 1:22 AM

The Jaguars averaged a half-yard more per rushing attempt with Marcedes Lewis in the lineup last season.

It's the equivalent of going from 4.0 to 4.5 YPC, which is a big jump. Lewis, 30, is limited in the passing game by 4.8 speed and poor quarterback play, but his health is good news for the Jaguars' Toby Gerhart-led running game.
Jul 16 - 8:21 PM

After reviewing the film, the Jaguars came away pleased with Marcedes Lewis' play last season.

There was some talk that Lewis' roster spot was in danger due to his $6.7 million salary and $8.25 million cap hit, but the Jags have plenty of financial flexibility. They can easily afford to keep their obvious best option at the position. OC Jedd Fisch found that the running game averaged 0.6 more yards per carry when Lewis was on the field last year. They also went 0-6 when he was inactive and 4-6 when he was active. Lewis remains a low-end TE2 in fantasy.
May 21 - 12:23 PM

The Jaguars are expected to retain Marcedes Lewis for 2014.

Lewis has a $6.7 million salary, but the Jaguars like what he brings to the table as a blocker and red-zone option. Jacksonville also has over $50 million in cap space. Lewis will turn 30 in April. A quarterback change should do him a lot of good stats-wise, but Lewis will be nothing more than a low-end TE2 in fantasy.

Jaguars GM Dave Caldwell said he anticipates Marcedes Lewis being back in 2014.

Lewis has two years left on his contract and is scheduled to count $8.25 million against the 2014 salary cap. The Jaguars have a ton of cap room, however, and Lewis is a critical part of the offense as a blocker, even though his receiving numbers have torpedoed since 2010. A quarterback change could do Lewis much good, but he's entrenched as a low-end TE2 fantasy-wise.
Tue, Dec 31, 2013 09:50:00 AM

Marcedes Lewis caught three passes for 70 yards in the Jaguars' Week 17 loss to the Colts.

Lewis wound up missing five games with a recurring early-season calf injury, but stayed healthy down the stretch and finished 2013 with 25 receptions for 359 yards and four touchdowns. A solid blocker and red-zone target, Lewis has been a serious fantasy factor in just one of his eight NFL seasons -- his 2010 contract year. A quarterback upgrade could spark him to some extent down the road, but Lewis is entrenched for now as a low-ceiling fantasy TE2. He'll turn 30 in April.

Marcedes Lewis is scheduled to count $8.25 million against the 2014 salary cap.

That's the third-highest number at the tight end position, behind only Heath Miller and Jason Witten. After Sunday's game, Lewis will have two years remaining on a five-year, $35 million deal. While the cap figure is high, the Jaguars currently have close to $40 million in available 2014 cap space. Lewis is a stud blocker and has scored touchdowns in four consecutive games.
