Lewis (ankle) practiced fully Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Lewis, who caught all three of his targets for 17 yards in last weekend's playoff win over the Bills, will be a go Sunday against the Steelers. From a fantasy standpoint, Lewis is pretty touchdown-dependent, given that he topped 50 receiving yards just once over the course of the regular season. The tight end did log five TDs in 16 games, but that mark was boosted by an outlier three-TD output on Sept. 24.

Lewis (ankle) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

EDGE Analysis

Lewis caught all three of his targets for 17 yards in this past Sunday's 10-3 win over the Bills. Blake Bortles threw for just 87 yards in the contest, so working in Lewis' favor this weekend is that his QB figures to do some more damage via the air in Sunday's road playoff contest against the Steelers. The tight end is a TD-dependent dart in postseason fantasy formats.

Lewis (ankle) does not carry an injury designation for Sunday's playoff game against the Bills.

EDGE Analysis

Overall, Lewis logged 24 catches (on 49 targets) for 318 yards and five TDs this past season, but his fantasy production was sporadic, with a three-TD output on Sept. 24 representing an outlier effort for the 33-year-old tight end.

Lewis (ankle) returned to a limited practice Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

We'll have to see if the tight end ends up with an injury designation for Sunday's playoff game against the Bills, but we'd expect him to suit up this weekend, in any case. The 2006 first-rounder finished up the 2017 season with 24 catches (on 49 targets) for 318 yards and five TDs, three of which Lewis logged on Sept. 24.

Lewis (ankle) isn't expected to practice Wednesday, John Reid of The Florida Times-Union reports.

EDGE Analysis

Lewis' practice time was limited last week due to the same injury, but he ultimately suited up for a mostly meaningless regular-season finale against the Titans and played 53 snaps in the loss. With no reported aggravation to the ankle during that contest, it's likely that Lewis is just being held out Wednesday for maintenance purposes. He should be good to go for Sunday's wild-card matchup with the Bills.

Lewis (ankle) doesn't have a designation for Sunday's game in Tennessee.

EDGE Analysis

Lewis has dealt with injuries at various points this season but hasn't missed a game to date. He won't break the streak this weekend, either, despite following a limited/DNP/limited practice regimen this week. Nonetheless, there's a chance Lewis gets some rest Sunday with the Jaguars locked into the No. 3 seed in the AFC playoffs, which would allow James O'Shaughnessy and Ben Koyack to get some run.

Lewis (ankle) failed to practice Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Though Lewis wasn't expected to take part in the Jaguars' first practice of the week Wednesday, he ended up being a limited participant. That makes it somewhat surprising that Lewis was downgraded to a non-participant in Thursday's session, but his level of involvement Friday will ultimately dictate whether or not he carries an injury designation into the Week 17 matchup with the Titans. The Jaguars are solidified as the AFC's No. 3 seed for the postseason, so there's reason to believe Lewis' reps might be limited even if he's given the green light to play in the regular-season finale.

Lewis is expected to be listed as a non-participant in practice Wednesday due to an ankle injury, Michael DiRocco of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Since the Jaguars are locked in as the No. 3 seed in the AFC, the team could treat Week 17 as a de facto bye week in preparation for the postseason. With that in mind, banged-up veterans like Lewis seem likely to be limited in practice throughout the week, and there's a possibility the tight end could be held out entirely Sunday in Tennessee. If Lewis is sidelined with the ankle issue or restricted in the regular-season finale, James O'Shaughnessy, who reeled in a season-best five targets in last week's loss to San Francisco, would step in as the team's top tight end.

Lewis (shoulder) does not carry an injury designation for Sunday's game against the 49ers.

EDGE Analysis

Lewis will be out there if you need him this week, but the veteran tight end has been a hit-or-miss fantasy option of late, with just two catches (on four targets) for 18 yards combined over his last two outings. Overall, Lewis has hauled in 21 catches for 283 yards in 14 games, with three of his five TDs this season having occurred in a random Week 3 outburst.

Lewis (shoulder) practiced on a limited basis Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

It amounts to a step forward for the tight end, who was held out entirely for the Jaguars' first practice session of the week. The Jacksonville coaching staff has offered no indication that Lewis' shoulder issue is a major concern, so it seems likely the 33-year-old is just getting some late-season maintenance this week. Expect him to start Sunday's game against the 49ers and take on his usual load of snaps.
