Lewis is expected to visit with the Packers this week, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

Lewis hasn't caught more than 25 passes in any of his last five seasons, but he did snag five touchdowns for a Blake Bortles-led offense in 2017. Regardless, Green Bay is presumably looking to bring him in as more of a blocking-oriented tight end than receiving threat, especially since the team already signed TE Jimmy Graham at the position. The 34-year-old isn't known to have generated interest from any another team this offseason.

The Jaguars plan to release Lewis, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Jaguars previously exercised their $3.5 million contract option for Lewis in 2018, which set the stage for the 2006 first-rounder to return for a 13th campaign with Jacksonville. However, the team changed course following the subsequent free agent additions of fellow tight ends Austin Seferian-Jenkins and Niles Paul. Lewis caught 24 passes for 318 yards and five TDs this past season, but at this stage of his career, the 33-year-old's blocking and ability in pass-protection are his primary calling cards.

The Jaguars exercised Lewis' $3.5 million team option for 2018 on Tuesday, Ryan O'Halloran of The Florida Times-Union reports.

EDGE Analysis

While Lewis' salary isn't guaranteed for 2018, the transaction more of less indicates that Jaguars plan on bringing the tight end back for a 13th season. Lewis has long been a tertiary member of the Jaguars' passing attack, but his marks of 318 yards and five touchdowns last season were his best since 2013, though the production was mostly inflated by an outlier 62-yard, three-score performance in Week 3. Since Lewis is set to turn 34 years old in May, it wouldn't be a surprise if the Jaguars made adding a developmental tight end a priority during the early rounds of the draft in April.

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.
