Marcedes Lewis out; Cecil Shorts will play
By Michael DiRocco
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Tight end Marcedes Lewis will miss Sunday’s game against St. Louis with the calf injury that has only allowed him to get on the field for two plays this season.
Receiver Cecil Shorts, who has a team-high 26 catches, is listed as questionable on Friday’s injury report but is expected to play. Shorts did not practice on Friday because of a groin injury he suffered earlier in the week.
Cornerback Alan Ball (groin), linebacker Geno Hayes (hip flexor), defensive tackle Roy Miller (shoulder), and receiver Denard Robinson (hamstring) are listed as probable.
As expected, receiver Mike Brown (back), receiver Stephen Burton (concussion), cornerback Dwayne Gratz (ankle), safety Dwight Lowery (concussion) and defensive end Jeremy Mincey (concussion) were declared out. None of them practiced at all this week.
