Jaguars waive RT Bradfield, put TE Lewis on IR
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — The Jacksonville Jaguars have waived right tackle Cam Bradfield and placed tight end Marcedes Lewis on short-term injured reserve.
The moves came Tuesday, two days after Bradfield was benched in a 41-10 loss at Washington that included a franchise-record 10 sacks. Bradfield was replaced by veteran Sam Young in the second half.
Young or Austin Pasztor, who missed the last month with a broken hand, will start Sunday against Indianapolis.
Lewis sustained a high-ankle sprain against the Redskins and will miss six to eight weeks. He was placed on IR/designated for return, meaning he can’t practice for six weeks and can’t return to the active roster for eight weeks.
The team also signed receiver Tavarres King off Carolina’s practice squad and promoted tight end Marcel Jensen from the practice squad to the active roster.
