FREMONT, Calif. (AP) — The Jacksonville Jaguars will be without tight end Marcedes Lewis for a third consecutive game.
Lewis was one of four players ruled out for Sunday’s game at Seattle (2-0). The Jaguars (0-2) want to make sure his calf, which he hurt in the preseason, is fully healed before putting him back on the field. Quarterback Blaine Gabbert (hand), cornerback Dwayne Gratz (ankle) and receiver Mike Brown (back) also are out.
Running back Maurice Jones-Drew (ankle), cornerback Alan Ball (groin) and guard Uche Nwaneri (knee) are questionable.
Jones-Drew, who practiced some Friday, expects to play. He says “my motto is unless I have to have surgery, I’m going to play.”
Coach Gus Bradley doesn’t want to play MJD “if he’s not close to a hundred percent or at a hundred percent.”
