Jacksonville Jaguars News: Marcedes Lewis, Luke Joeckel


The Jacksonville Jaguars will likely be missing starting tight end Marcedes Lewis for Sunday’s game against the Seattle Seahawks, but he did manage to put in a limited practice yesterday, according to the Florida Times-Union. That was the first time Lewis has practiced since aggravating a calf injury early this month, and he’ll be ready to play in Week 4. But for now, the Jaguars will continue to be missing a solid TE and big red zone target.

Jaguars rookie right tackle Luke Joeckel has had a rough start to the season, as he’s been having some issues with penalties. He has committed a pair of false start penalties through the first two weeks of the regular season, and he’s also had issues in pass protection. Joeckel is an elite talent and will get things straightened out sooner rather than later, but the second pick in the draft has been making too many mistakes on the right side here in the early going.

Joeckel knows that, and some of the struggles could be because he’s playing on the right side of the line than the left (it’s hard to adjust to playing on a different side of the line, but that’s not a true excuse for his issues). He stated that his issues are mental issues, and I found it amusing that he used the name “Mental Error Guy” (it’s time to coin that one).

“I can’t have the mental stuff. Physically, I feel good and feel like I’m getting better every week. But I have to get over the mental errors and have to take more preparation time watching film and clear my mind.”

“Clear my mind and play football. I’ve never been a Mental Error Guy but there are a lot of things going on.”
