The Jacksonville Jaguars probably will be without tight end Marcedes Lewis again.
Lewis, who is recovering from a nagging calf injury to his left leg, missed his sixth consecutive practice Friday and was listed as doubtful for Sunday's game at Oakland.
The Jaguars (0-1) have four players listed as questionable, and coach Gus Bradley says receiver Mike Brown (back), guard Will Rackley (knee), cornerback Alan Ball (groin) and linebacker J.T. Thomas (hamstring) will be game-day decisions. All four sat out practice Friday.
Receiver Cecil Shorts III (groin), guard Uche Nwaneri (knee) and defensive tackle Roy Miller (knee) were limited in practice Friday and listed as probable.
The Jaguars already are down three starters, with receiver Justin Blackmon (suspended), quarterback Blaine Gabbert (hand) and cornerback Dwayne Gratz (ankle) out Sunday.

Tight end Marcedes Lewis is noted for being one of the most durable Jaguars.
He missed only three games in his first seven seasons with the team.
He now seems destined to miss the first two games of this season with a nagging calf injury. Coach Gus Bradley said Lewis is a longshot to play Sunday in Oakland.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- With injuries at receiver and cornerback, the Jacksonville Jaguars turned to their practice squad to fill potential holes against Oakland.
The Jaguars signed first-year receiver Jeremy Ebert and rookie cornerback Marcus Burley off the practice squad Saturday.
To make room for them on the roster, the team waived guard Jacques McClendon and defensive end...
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- By no means is it the most pressing concern of a team which ranks last in the NFL in total offense a week into the 2013 season.
But the Jacksonville Jaguars clearly need, among a myriad of things, more time getting to familiarize themselves with one another. That became apparent in the first quarter Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs after J.T. Thomas, claimed...
Maurice Jones-Drew gets a second chance to celebrate his homecoming Sunday.
A year ago the Bay Area native made his first appearance of his NFL career in Oakland but didn’t put on a show for his family and friends.

On Sunday the Jaguars return...
The starting lineup for the Jacksonville Jaguars this week looks more like a makeshift MASH unit.Blaine Gabbert, Cecil Shorts, Will Rackley Uche Nwaneri, Mike Brown, Marcedes Lewis, and Dwayne Gratz and Alan Ball have all been sidelined during practice, will not play in the game against Oakland, or have been listed as out of action for the next three weeks.It’s enough to make a...
This is not how Jacksonville needed to start a two-week stretch on the left coast.As the Jaguars prepared for the Raiders this week, injuries, doubt and quarterback changes plagued this team.And with both guards nursing injuries, the ground game which was already suspect may become missing in action.That is certainly how Maurice Jones-Drew wants things to be. Playing against Oakland...
Maurice Jones-Drew doesn't need to hear the numbers. He's painfully aware of them.
The Jacksonville Jaguars running back in winless in four trips to the West Coast, including 0-2 in the Bay Area. And his stats aren't pretty, either.
Jones-Drew has 146 yards rushing on 41 carries and no touchdowns in games at Seattle (2009), San Francisco (2009), San Diego (2010) and...
The Jacksonville Jaguars will look to rebound from their embarrassing week one loss against the Kansas City Chiefs when they face the Oakland Raiders this week. Starting quarterback Blaine Gabbert has already been ruled out with a lacerated hand injury, so this may be the week Chad Henne makes his case to lead the Jacksonville offense this season.Here is a comprehensive list of...
On Wednesday, Shane Clemons asked whether the Denver Broncos might have a chance to become the second team in NFL history to win all 16 of their regular-season games. So in the interest of being fair and balanced, I'll be the TGS pessimist and ask whether the Jacksonville Jaguars can do the opposite and become only the second team in NFL history to go 0-16.
Here's why it could...
Jacksonville Jaguars (0-1) at Oakland Raiders (0-1)
One of the most powerful trends in betting is known as the six and six trend, meaning teams who finish with 6 wins or fewer are 25-69 ATS as favorites of 6 or more since 2002. There are two issues with this trend. One, it’s very rare (it only happened 7 times all last season, going 2-5 ATS). Two, it’s even rarer that a situation...
The Raiders put up a great fight versus the Jacksonville Jaguars and the offense looked light years ahead of last year’s poorly run unit. The defense also did better than expected against Andrew Luck and a Colts offense that looks like it can score some points when it’s in sync.
This week may be the only time this season that the Raiders are favored but the game comes against...
