  • Jets' Alex Lewis: Announces retirement

    Lewis (head) officially announced retirement Wednesday, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

    After suffering a head injury during training camp, Lewis stepped away from the team and was subsequently placed on the reserve/left squad list last Thursday. In theory, he could attempt a comeback in 2022, but his 2021 campaign -- and his time with the Jets -- is finished.

  • Jets' Alex Lewis: Off NFI list but unlikely to play

    The Jets activated Lewis (undisclosed) from the non-football injury list Thursday, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

    Despite coming off the NFI list, coach Adam Gase said that Lewis is unlikely to be active for Sunday's regular-season finale against the Patriots. With that in mind, Pat Elflein looks primed for another start at left guard.

  • Jets' Alex Lewis: Designated to return

    Lewis (undisclosed) was designated to return from the non-football injury list Wednesday.

  • Jets' Alex Lewis: Shifts to NFI list

    The Jets will place Lewis (undisclosed) on the non-football injury list, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

    Lewis will have to spend at least three weeks on the NFI list before being eligible to return. He also missed last weekend's loss to the Dolphins for undisclosed reasons unrelated to injury. In his absence, Pat Elflein (shoulder) will be the favorite to start at left guard as long as he's cleared to play.

  • Jets' Alex Lewis: Won't face Raiders

    Coach Adam Gase said Friday that Lewis (undisclosed) will miss a second straight game for reasons unrelated to injury, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.

    Gase said the reason for Lewis' absence is "an organizational decision" and that the guard isn't in danger of being fined or losing his roster spot, per Vacchiano. Pat Elflein (shoulder) will be the favorite to replace Lewis at left guard as long as he's cleared to play against the Raiders on Sunday.

  • Jets' Alex Lewis: Off injury report for Week 8

    Lewis (shoulder) won't carry an injury tag into Sunday's game versus the Chiefs, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

  • Jets' Alex Lewis: Inactive as expected

    Lewis (shoulder) won't suit up in Sunday's game against the Bills, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.

    Lewis came into the game drawing a doubtful tag, as he was deemed week-to-week Friday by his coach Adam Gase. Josh Andrews came in last week against the Dolphins replacing Lewis, so he's expected to do so again this week at left guard.

  • Jets' Alex Lewis: Deemed doubtful for Sunday

    Lewis (shoulder) is doubtful for Sunday's game versus the Bills, Andy Vasquez of The Bergen Record reports.

    Coach Adam Gase said earlier this week that Lewis has "multiple issues with his shoulder," and he was handed a week-to-week tag. Conor McDermott is expected to start at left guard in his place, though the offensive line as a whole could be shaken up if Mekhi Becton (shoulder) and George Fant (knee) also sit out.

  • Jets' Alex Lewis: Still week-to-week

    Coach Adam Gase said Monday that Lewis has multiple issues with his shoulder and remains week-to-week, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

    Lewis was bothered by a shoulder injury before Week 1 but played in every game except the Week 6 loss to the Dolphins. It appears he could be trending toward another absence, in which case Conor McDermott likely would start at left guard Sunday versus the Bills.

  • Jets' Alex Lewis: Won't return Sunday

    Lewis (shoulder) is ruled out to return to Sunday's game against the Dolphins.
