Marcedes Lewis injury: Jaguars TE says he will play Sunday

Jaguars tight end Marcedes Lewis says he's going to be ready to play on Sunday against the Colts.

The Jacksonville Jaguars haven't dealt with a lot of major injuries so far in the 2013 NFL season, but one injury that has plagued them is that of veteran tight end Marcedes Lewis. Lewis strained his calf during the preseason and re-aggravated it trying to get back on the field.

His status for Sunday was promising, but still up in the air during head coach Gus Bradley's press conference, but on Wednesday Lewis says he's going to play against the Indianapolis Colts.

Adding Lewis to the lineup gives the offense something they've been lack the first three weeks, which is a big target for the quarterback over the middle of the field and a player who they can take advantage of in the redzone, because of his size... if they can get there.
