Jets' Alex Lewis: Off NFI list but unlikely to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

It's still unclear what kept Lewis away from the team for the past three weeks, but he's eligible to return to practice and could play in Sunday's game against the Patriots. If he's activated, Lewis likely will start at left guard in the season finale.

Jets' Alex Lewis: Shifts to NFI list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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: Out against Dolphins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewis (undisclosed) is inactive for Sunday's game versus the Dolphins, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.

The Jets will also be without starting right tackle George Fant (ankle). Pat Elflein is expected to slot in at left guard for Lewis.

Jets' Alex Lewis: Off injury report for Week 8
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

Lewis has made a quick recovery after being deemed week-to-week following Week 6, and he'll return to action this Sunday and retake his typical starting left guard position.

Jets' Alex Lewis: Inactive as expected
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

Lewis' absence is a brutal blow to the left side of a Jets' offensive line already missing Mekhi Becton (shoulder). Backup lineman Chuma Edoga (calf) is also ruled out to return to action Sunday.

Jets' Alex Lewis: Active against Bills
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewis (shoulder) is active for the team's Week 1 contest against the Bills, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.

Lewis progressed from a limited participant in practice early in the week to a full practice Friday. That was enough for him to get ready for the opening contest of the season and he'll start at left guard.

Jets' Alex Lewis: Questionable for Week 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewis (shoulder) turned in a full practice Friday and is questionable for the Jets' Week 1 matchup against the Bills, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

Lewis was limited both Wednesday and Thursday, so his full participation Friday was encouraging. Nevertheless, he is questionable for the team's opening contest of the season. If Lewis is unable to take the field, Conor McDermott will likely draw the start at left guard.

Jets' Alex Lewis: Shoulder injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewis did not practice Wednesday due to a shoulder injury, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.

Coach Adam Gase said it "doesn't sound like" Lewis' injury is overly concerning, so he can be considered day-to-day for the time being. The Jets will hope to have the starting guard available for Sept. 13's season-opener against Buffalo.

Jets' Alex Lewis: In for starting role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewis (ankle) is set to reprise his starting role as the Jets' top left guard for 2020, Olivia Landis of the team's official site reports.

Lewis appeared in 15 regular-season contests with the Jets last season (12 starts), only missing Week 17 due to an ankle injury from which he's now fully recovered. The Jets opted to invest heavily in the offensive line during the offseason, so if Lewis can at least perform at a league-average level in 2020 there's reason for optimism that he could be part of an improved unit. The 28-year-old re-upped with New York via a three-year, $18.6 million deal in March.

Jets' Alex Lewis: Sticks with Jets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewis (ankle) is signing a three-year, $18.6 million contract to stay with the Jets, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.

Lewis got the start in 12 of his 15 appearances last season, earning PFF's No. 57 grade (56.1) among 80 qualified guards. He sat out Week 17 with an ankle injury but should be back this summer for the starting job at left guard.

Jets' Alex Lewis: Shifts to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewis (ankle) was placed on injured reserve Saturday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Lewis was already ruled out for the season finale against the Bills. Tom Compton (calf) was placed on IR as well, so Jonotthan Harrison and Leo Koloamatangi are expected to start along the offensive line Sunday.

Jets' Alex Lewis: Out for finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewis (ankle) has been ruled out for the Jets' regular-season finale against the Bills, Eric Allen of the Jets' official site reports.

Lewis picked up an ankle injury in last week's victory over the Steelers. As a result, his 2019 season will come to a premature close. In his absence, look for Jonotthan Harrison to fill in at left guard.

Jets' Alex Lewis: Managing ankle injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewis suffered an ankle injury during Sunday's win over the Steelers, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

Lewis has been starting since Week 5 but his status for the season finale is now in doubt. The Jets may need to do some reshuffling on the offensive line given the numerous injuries to the unit.

Jets' Alex Lewis: Good to go
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewis (neck) available for Monday's matchup with the Patriots, Randy Lange of the Jets' official website reports.

Lewis will get the start at left tackle now that he has been deemed ready to go. Tom Compton would be in line to replace him should he suffer any type of setback.

Jets' Alex Lewis: Questionable with neck injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewis is questionable for Monday's game against the Patriots with a neck injury.

Lewis was added to the injury report Friday as a non-participant, but he was able to practice in a limited fashion Saturday. The Jets can ill afford to be without their starting left guard since Brian Winters (shoulder) and Ryan Kalil (shoulder) are questionable while Kelechi Osemele (shoulder) and Kelvin Beachum (ankle) are doubtful.
