Jaguars injury report: Marcedes Lewis plays through neck injury

An apparent neck injury suffered by tight end Marcedes Lewis on Sunday didn't keep him off the field for long.

The Jacksonville Jaguars avoided major injuries in Week 14, though tight end Marcedes Lewis missed some of the team's game against the Jets with what appeared to be a neck injury. Lewis eventually was able to return to the game and finished the day with one reception for four yards.

Jacksonville came into the weekend dealing with injuries to a number of contributors, including running back Maurice Jones-Drew, who was not able to play against the Jets. Mike Brewster, Rashad Jennings, Aaron Ross, George Selvie and Cecil Shorts also were held out of the game because of injuries. Jones-Drew hasn't played in a game for the 2-11 Jaguars since Oct. 21.

Jacksonville fell 17-10 to the Jets on Sunday, which was its second loss in a row. The Jaguars return to the field next week against the Miami Dolphins, and they'll close out their regular season slate with games against New England and Tennessee.
