Marcedes Lewis injury: Jaguars TE to miss Eagles game

The Jaguars have decided to hold out veteran tight end Marcedes Lewis against the Eagles on Saturday.

The Jacksonville Jaguars will hold tight end Marcedes Lewis out of their preseason matchup with the Philadelphia Eagles on Saturday, Gus Bradley told the media on Wednesday afternoon.

Lewis tweaked his calf in pre-game warmups last Saturday against the New York Jets and was held out of the game. The Jaguars have held Lewis out of practice all week and finally ruled him out of the game.

In his place, Allen Reisner is going to start for Lewis with the first team offense. Reisner has had a nice preseason and training camp, climbing the depth chart and catching a touchdown against the Jets on the opening drive.
