News you need to know
From Mark Wimer's Monday injury report (Mon Sep 15): Lewis was forced from the game on Sunday with a high-ankle sprain. He'll be evaluated further on Monday, but generally speaking high-ankle sprains take longer to heal than a lower-ankle sprain. He left the stadium in a walking boot, propped up on crutches. On Monday, the team learned that Lewis will be out 6-8 weeks due to the high ankle sprain.
From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 15): Lewis had a long catch-and-run TD at the expense of Bacarri Rambo (second one he has given up in two weeks), but he also suffered a high ankle sprain that will cost him 6-8 weeks.
General News (Tue Sep 16): was placed on the short-term Reserve/Injured list Tuesday, Sept. 16. Lewis will be able to return to the field in Week 12 as the Jaguars have a bye in Week 11. The backup in Jacksonville is Clay Harbor, but he is questionable for Week 3 with a calf injury.
Week 3: vs Indianapolis Colts
Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. Chad Henne got spammed for ten sacks last week, costing his team -70 yards. Tentative and surrounded with young receivers, Henne managed just 14/28 for 193 yards passing, one TD and one interception thrown while being ground into the dust. The one weapon who scored last week, Marcedes Lewis, suffered a severe high ankle sprain and was sent to IR-designated to return this week (he's out until at least Week 12 now). Aside from Lewis, the Robinsons (Allen Robinson, six targets for 4/75/0 receiving, and Denard Robinson, two for 2/14/0) were the main targets for Henne when he wasn't eating grass at Washington. The Colts' pass D ranks 28th in the NFL averaging 295.0 yards allowed per game, with four passing scores given up vs. one interception generated. The Colts are tied for 30th in the NFL with just one sack - it may be hard for them to plant Henne during this upcoming game. Last week, Nick Foles was not sacked or hit on his way to 21/37 for 331 yards passing, one TD and one interception thrown. Henne is sore this week after the debacle at Washington, but he actually has a good matchup against the weak Colts' pass D this week.
Recent Stats and Projections
Recent Game Summaries
2014 Week 1 vs PHI (9 / 6 / 35 / 0 rec)
Marcedes Lewis was neglected by the Jaguars offense last year. When he was given opportunities, he was effective so it's no surprise that the first play of the game this year put the ball in his hands on a screen play. Lewis showed good patience to gain eight yards. Lewis' next target came late in the first quarter, when he caught a short pass underneath in a crowd. The Jaguars weren't heavily featuring Lewis, but it was tough to understand their gameplan because of the way the game developed early. He caught his third pass on a deep out route after play action for a first down. To start the third quarter, the Jaguars threw a screen pass to Lewis like they had earlier in the game. This time the Eagles defense closed in on him very quickly. His most crucial play came on a fourth down play late in the fourth quarter deep in Jaguars territory. He found space after play action past the first down marker, but Henne forced him to attempt a very difficult catch when he overthrew his pass.
2014 Week 2 vs WAS (3 / 2 / 71 / 1 rec)
Marcedes Lewis keeps reminding us of his talent with impressive plays. On this occasion, his impressive play came in the form of a huge touchdown reception. He initially exposed his midriff to a big hit when adjusting to a high pass from Henne down the sideline, before running the ball into the endzone from 45 yards out. Lewis showed good awareness at the end of the play when he initiated contact with the incoming defender to stop himself from being knocked out of bounds. Significantly, Lewis left the field in the second half with what was said to be a high ankle sprain, which will keep him sidelined for 6-8 weeks.
