Description: Jaguars tight end Marcedes Lewis left the Week 2 contest with Washington due to an ankle injury and the results are he'll miss 6-8 weeks, according to Vito Stellino of jacksonville.com
Insight: The Jaguars were already having trouble keeping their wide receivers healthy and this won't help matters.
 
9/14/2014 3:26:00 PM
Description: Jaguars tight end Marcedes Lewis was in the middle of a big game, but has left the Week 2 contest with Washington due to an ankle injury.
Insight: Lewis caught a 63-yard touchdown pass near the end of the second quarter. His return is questionable.
 
9/12/2014 8:29:00 PM
Description: Jaguars tight end Marcedes Lewis (hamstring) is probable for Week 2
Insight: Lewis is a low-end TE2 for Sunday's game against Washington. He had six catches for 35 yards on nine targets against Philadelphia in Week 1.
 
Hot9/8/2014 4:29:00 PM
Description: Jaguars tight end Marcedes Lewis has a "knee capsule injury" but is expected to play Week 2 against the Redskins according to the Florida Times Union.
Insight: Lewis caught 6-of-9 targets for 35 yards in Week 1 against the Eagles. We expect that number to drop in the coming weeks. He is only useful in very deep leagues.
 
Hot12/15/2013 6:28:00 PM
Description: Jacksonville tight end Marcedes Lewis snared a touchdown for the third straight game in Week 15 against Buffalo.
Insight: Lewis established season highs with seven targets, four catches and 54 yards in Week 15.
 
10/11/2013 3:10:00 PM
Description: Jacksonville tight end Marcedes Lewis (calf strain) is out for Week 6 versus Denver.
Insight: Lewis' spot will be taken by Clay Harbor. Against the Broncos' defense Harbor could be a viable fantasy option.
 
10/6/2013 12:14:00 PM
Description: Jacksonville tight end Marcedes Lewis continues to be sidelined with a calf strain.
Insight: He sat out the first four games with the injury. Lewis doesn't belong on any fantasy rosters with Blaine Gabbert at quarterback.

Description: Jacksonville tight end Marcedes Lewis should be back for Sunday's game against Indianapolis. SOURCE: Mark Long, Associated Press
Insight: He sat out the first three games with a calf injury. Lewis doesn't belong on any fantasy rosters with Blaine Gabbert at quarterback.
 
9/20/2013 11:15:00 AM
Description: Jaguars tight end Marcedes Lewis practiced on Thursday after rehabbing a calf injury which has kept him out of the first two games this season.
Insight: Lewis hasn't been a viable fantasy tight end since 2010 (58-700-10) and with the quality at tight ends around the league in 2013 - he still isn't one.
 
9/5/2012 12:10:00 PM
Description: Jaguars tight end Marcedes Lewis left Wednesday's practice early due to his calf injury.
Insight: Lewis was the Jaguars' leading receiver with a paltry 460 yards last season and he didn't catch a touchdown pass a year after grabbing 10. Even when healthy, there are much better fantasy options available.
 
8/16/2012 5:15:00 PM
Description: According to the Florida Times Union, new Jaguars offensive coordinator Bob Bratkowski said tight end Marcedes Lewis needs to be a more frequent target for second-year QB Blaine Gabbert.
Insight: Lewis was the Jaguars' leading receiver with a paltry 460 yards last season and he didn't catch a touchdown pass a year after grabbing 10. Lewis figures to have a better season in new coach Mike Mularkey's offensive scheme since Mularky himself was a tight end, but we don't expect the Jaguars to put up enough points to justify drafting the 6-foot-6 tight end.
 
9/18/2011 8:07:00 AM
Description: According to Jay Glazer of FOX Sports, Marcedes Lewis (calf, doubtful) will not play Sunday against the Jets. Source: Jay Glazer via Twitter
Insight: Lewis put in a practice Friday but not a full one, so he'll be hoping for a week 3 return. Zach Miller will get the start but shouldn't warrant consideration in fantasy leagues.

Description: Marcedes Lewis (calf) missed Jaguars practice Wednesday. Source: Tania Ganguli via Twitter
Insight: This shouldn't be anything that lasts long-term, but as of now there's a concern that he'll be unavailable for week 2. As of now, look to other options at TE for this week.
 
5/20/2011 2:44:00 PM
Description: NFL Network had Jaguars tight end Marcedes Lewis in studio yesterday and became the latest Jaguars player to express support for veteran quarterback David Garrard. SOURCE: JACKSONVILLE.COM
Insight: "Dave is one of those guys that when his back is against the wall, he's coming out fighting," Lewis said. "...Dave is going to accept the competition, take Blaine [Gabbert] under his wing and continue to be our quarterback and do exactly what he's been doing since I've been here. And that's continue to be a leader on and off the field, in the community and doing his thing."
 
2/24/2011 12:02:00 AM
Description: As expected, Lewis received the Jaguars' franchise tag on Wednesday.
Insight: The NFLPA apparently continues to say the tags are invalid under the current labor situation, but there doesn't seem any reason to believe Lewis will play anywhere else in 2011. (RapidDraft.com)
 
2/23/2011 5:34:00 PM
Description: As expected, the Jaguars have franchised TE Marcedes Lewis. SOURCE: TWITTER
Insight: Once he signs his tender, Lewis will make $7 million in 2011. The Jags are using the tag so long-term talks can continue.
 
2/23/2011 2:45:00 PM
Description: If the Jaguars and TE Marcedes Lewis don't reach a long-term deal by the March 4th deadline, Lewis is expected to be franchised. SOURCE: FLORIDA TIMES-UNION
Insight: It was rumored weeks ago, but this is the first confirmed report that Lewis will definitely get the tag. After having a breakout season in 2010, Lewis' $7.3 million salary that the tag would pay for tight ends is worth it. Lewis has already admitted he would rather stay a Jaguar than test the market, so he won't be disappointed. He has cracked TE1 status for 2011.
 
2/23/2011 11:02:00 AM
Description: Multiple sources report that the Jaguars are expected to apply the franchise tag to Lewis, barring a turnaround in negotiations on a long-term deal.
Insight: Lewis broke through statistically in 2010 but has long been viewed as a valuable member of the offense by the Jaguars. Look for him to stick around Jacksonville one way or the other. (RapidDraft.com)
 
2/7/2011 3:42:00 PM
Description: The Jaguars are expected to use the franchise tag on TE Marcedes Lewis. SOURCE: FLORIDA TIMES UNION
Insight: The league had originally announced that teams can still use the tag, but the NFLPA recently came out and said they couldn't, so an official word has yet to be announced. The move makes sense if there is a tag after Lewis' ten touchdowns in 2010, which were three more than the total for his entire career.
 
1/4/2011 2:01:00 AM
Description: Lewis caught four passes for 26 yards and his 10th touchdown of the season on Sunday.
Insight: Lewis' 10 touchdowns quintuple his previous best of two, which he reached in each of the past three seasons. Lewis also collected 17 more catches and 192 more receiving yards than his prior bests. (RapidDraft.com)
