The biggest news with today’s release is the activation of 2018 second-round pick and defensive tackle/end Tyquan Lewis off of the IR and his full participation in Friday’s practice. The former Buckeye returned to practice on Oct. 24 and gave Indy a 21-day period to decide if he would be activated or not. Lewis, one of four 2018 draft picks on the defensive line, will hope to be another bright name in what has been proving to be a strong rookie class for Indianapolis.
After failing to participate in practice all week, tight end Ryan Hewitt (ankle), safety Mike Mitchell (calf) and tight end Erik Swoope (knee) were all ruled out for Sunday’s game at home.
Of those questionable for this week’s game, wide receiver Ryan Grant (ankle) participated in full after being limited in both Wednesday and Thursday practices. Cornerback Nate Hairston (ankle) was limited for the third day in a row, and defensive end Kemoko Turay (neck) missed practice for the second day in a row after being limited on Wednesday. Offensive lineman Denzelle Good, who sat Friday with an illness, is also questionable for Sunday’s bout.
Bright signs for both second-year players in running back Marlon Mack and safety Malik Hooker, who participated in full on Friday after being limited earlier in the week. Mack will look to continue his strong stretch of play against an aggressive Jaguar defense, while Hooker will try and make life difficult for quarterback Blake Bortles.
