Jacksonville Jaguars tight end Marcedes Lewis will miss 6-8 weeks with a high ankle sprain.
The Jacksonville Jaguars were blown out by the Washington Redskins, 41-10, and they received even more insult to injury when it was announced that starting tight end Marcedes Lewis would miss six to eight weeks with a high ankle sprain.
This marks more bad luck for the Jaguars in their receiving corps since they lost Ace Sanders to suspension and Cecil Shorts III to a hamstring injury.
However, reports say that Shorts may be able to return healthy as he is aiming to return to practice on Wednesday. Wide receiver Allen Hurns was also injured in the Week 2 loss as he sprained his ankle, but his injury is considered day-to-day.
Clay Harbor is expected to take over as the starting tight end in Jacksonville while Lewis nurses his ankle sprain.
Lewis’ presence will be missed by the Jaguars as he lit a spark in their otherwise lifeless offense by scoring a 63-yard touchdown.
