Lewis (calf) hopes to return to a prominent role under new offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett, Ryan O'Halloran of The Florida Times-Union reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Jaguars traded Julius Thomas and only replaced him with Mychal Rivera, who likely will occupy a part-time role on passing downs. Lewis is optimistic he'll take on a bigger pass-catching role under Hackett, but there's little reason to believe the 33-year-old can regain fantasy relevance at this stage of his career, following four straight seasons with 25 or fewer catches. The Jaguars figure to distribute most of the offensive touches to rookie running back Leonard Fournette and their wideout trio of Allen Robinson, Allen Hurns and Marqise Lee. While seemingly healthy and poised to start, Lewis mostly figures to contribute as a run blocker.

The Jaguars may use a high draft pick on a tight end to join Lewis (calf), Ben Koyack and Neal Sterling, the Florida Times-Union reports.

EDGE Analysis

Coming off an injury-shortened season, Lewis moved to the top of the depth chart when Jacksonville traded Julius Thomas to the Dolphins. A tight end group comprised of Lewis, Koyack and Sterling is far from exciting, and it's no secret the upcoming draft is strong at the position. Even if he were to enter the season atop Jacksonville's depth chart, Lewis likely would just be an ancillary piece in the passing game. He'll turn 33 in May, after missing five or more games in three of the past four seasons.

The Jaguars have placed Lewis (calf) on IR.

EDGE Analysis

With Lewis done for the season, the Jaguars' tight end corps moving forward will be led by Julius Thomas, with Ben Koyack and Neal Sterling also in the mix. Lewis' 2016 campaign thus ends with a 20/169/1 stat line over 10 contests.

Lewis injured his calf during Sunday's game against the Lions and is considered questionable to return, John Oehser of Jaguars.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Lewis' potential absence won't have too much of an impact on the Jaguars' aerial attack, while Julius Thomas continues to be the primary option at tight end. Another update regarding Lewis' status should become available upon the release of additional information.

Lewis had three catches on four targets for negative-one yard in Sunday's loss to Houston.

EDGE Analysis

While Lewis was technically designated as a starter Sunday, his workload remained minimal, as he failed to reach the end zone for the seventh straight week. Julius Thomas is still the tight end to own in Jacksonville, though even he has not been consistently reliable, especially in weeks when he fails to reach paydirt.

Lewis had two catches on four targets for 23 yards in Sunday's loss to the Chiefs.

EDGE Analysis

Lewis was actually targeted two more times than No. 1 tight end Julius Thomas, but once again neither player provided much in terms of fantasy value. Outside of a touchdown in Week 2 against the Chargers, the veteran Lewis has been a virtual non-factor in one of the league's most inefficient passing games.

Lewis was not targeted in Sunday's Week 6 win over the Bears.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran picked up a touchdown in Week 2 against the Chargers but has otherwise been a near-nonfactor in the Jacksonville offense. He has only eight catches for 97 yards on the season and hasn't been targeted more than three times in any of the Jaguars' five games. Julius Thomas is firmly the tight end to own in Jacksonville, though even he has been disappointing as a fantasy commodity this season, and that trend continued Sunday (two catches, 28 yards).

Lewis (hip) practiced fully Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Lewis is thus on track to play Sunday against the Bears, but his fantasy upside this week is limited by the anticipated return to action of fellow TE Julius Thomas.

Lewis (hip) did not practice on Monday.

EDGE Analysis

Though dealing with a hip pointer, Lewis is still expected to play against the Bears this weekend. However, he'll likely need to partake in practice before that expectation could possibly come into fruition.

Lewis is dealing with a right hip pointer, but he is expected to return to action following the Jaguars' Week 5 bye.

EDGE Analysis

Lewis was injured during Sunday's victory over the Colts, which may have played a role in him catching just one pass despite working as the starting tight end with Julius Thomas (elbow) out. Thomas is also expected to return to action in Week 6, which would push Lewis back into a reserve role.
