Lewis signed a two-year, $8 million contract with the Packers on Wednesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Analysis: Lewis will return for a 16th year in the NFL, and a fourth straight season in Green Bay. The veteran tight end's deal reportedly includes $4 million guaranteed, an indication of the value he provides to the Packers as a leader and reliable depth option. Though Lewis occasionally sees usage in the red zone (three touchdowns in 2020), his targets come too inconsistently to provide real fantasy value.
Mar 24, 2021 1:46 PM EST
Lewis caught 10 passes for 107 yards and three touchdowns over 15 games in 2020.
Analysis: The veteran tight end was rewarded for his blocking-oriented role with three trips to the end zone, but he spent most of the campaign keeping defenders off his quarterback and fellow skill players. Lewis will turn 37 in May, but according to Andy Herman of the Pack-A-Day Podcast, he intends to keep playing and wants to do so for the Packers, so he could reprise a similar role for the team in 2021.

Jan 22, 2021 1:32 PM EST
Lewis (knee) did not practice Thursday, Olivia Reiner of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Analysis: Lewis continues to have his practice reps capped due to a knee injury that's lingered all season. The veteran tight end still looks to be on track for Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the Buccaneers, and Friday's final injury report of the week will reveal how the Packers have evaluated his status.
Jan 21, 2021 2:44 PM EST
Lewis (knee) was limited in practice Wednesday.
Analysis: Lewis having his practice reps capped has been a regular event all season, so there's no reason to worry that his injury represents any larger an obstacle than usual as Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the Buccaneers approaches. He's only been targeted once in the last four games.
Jan 20, 2021 1:53 PM EST
Lewis (knee) does not carry an injury designation for Saturday's playoff matchup against the Rams, Wes Hodkiewicz of the Packers' official site reports.
Analysis: Lewis saw his practice reps capped due to a lingering knee injury this week, but it never appeared as though his availability for Saturday's game was in much real danger. He stands to handle his usual role behind top tight end Robert Tonyan versus Los Angeles.
Jan 14, 2021 3:13 PM EST
Lewis (knee) did not practice Wednesday, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.
Analysis: Lewis was limited in Tuesday's practice, so it's somewhat concerning to see his activity level drop. Of course, the veteran tight end has regularly had a cap on his reps all season. He'll have one more chance to practice before the Packers have to tag him with an injury designation for Saturday's divisional contest against the Rams.
Jan 13, 2021 3:49 PM EST
Lewis (knee) was a limited participant on Tuesday's practice estimate.
Analysis: Lewis has consistently been limited in practice this year, so this isn't cause for concern. The 36-year-old tight end is expected to suit up in Saturday's playoff matchup against the Rams, and he'll mainly work on a blocking role.
Jan 12, 2021 2:13 PM EST
Lewis hauled in his lone target and tallied one reception for nine yards in Sunday's victory over the Bears.
Analysis: Lewis played the second-most snaps among Packers tight ends for the ninth game in a row, and although he caught his first pass since Week 14, he was limited mainly to blocking duty like he usually is. Lewis found the end zone three times during the regular season, but he caught just 10 passes despite playing in all but one game.

Lewis (knee) won't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Bears, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio reports.
Analysis: Lewis went through his normal routine of load management through the week, including an absence from Thursday's practice. He'll nevertheless be ready to go for Sunday's divisional tilt. The veteran tight end rarely contributes in the pass-catching department, but he did snag a touchdown pass in the Week 12 matchup against the Bears.
Jan 1, 2021 2:09 PM EST
Lewis (knee) did not participate during the Packers' practice session Thursday.
Analysis: The veteran tight end's injury outlook for Week 17 is not looking especially encouraging at the moment, as Lewis downgraded from limited participation Wednesday. The 36-year-old's status traveled along a direct upward trajectory last week, as he moved from a DNP tag Wednesday to full participation Friday before suiting up Sunday night against Tennessee. Despite having experienced frequently curtailed practice involvement throughout the year, Lewis has missed just one game as Green Bay heads into its regular-season finale at Chicago.
Dec 31, 2020 3:28 PM EST
Lewis (knee) was a limited participant at Wednesday's practice.
Analysis: Lewis has been nursing this knee issue for a while, so it is unsurprising to see him pop up on the injury report once again. He fought through the issue to play last week, but failed to record a reception in the Packers' victory over the Titans. His status will need to be monitored as the week progresses.
Dec 30, 2020 6:08 PM EST
Lewis (knee) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Titans, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.
Analysis: The veteran tight end began the week not practicing but was able to put in a full practice Friday to avoid the questionable tag. Lewis should continue to see occasional targets while primarily serving as a blocker for Green Bay.
Dec 25, 2020 2:02 PM EST
Lewis (knee) was limited during the Packers' practice session Thursday, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Analysis: The veteran tight end has been coping with a knee issue since early October, but he's still proven capable of getting on the field for 13 of Green Bay's 14 games this season. Barring a setback to his status Friday, Lewis is trending toward a Week 16 activation. He'll be afforded slightly more time to get his body right, with the Packers not kicking off against the Titans until Sunday Night Football.
Dec 24, 2020 4:07 PM EST
Lewis (knee) did not practice Wednesday.
Analysis: Lewis has had his practice reps capped due to a knee issue for much of the season, but he's suited up for each of the Packers' games since Week 4. As long as he can resume practicing in at least a limited fashion, the veteran tight end should be in good shape for Sunday's game against the Titans.
Dec 23, 2020 3:10 PM EST
Lewis (knee) is expected to suit up Week 15 against Carolina after logging a limited practice session Thursday, Wez Hodkiewicz of the Packers' official site reports.
Analysis: The veteran tight end has remained limited throughout the practice week, but he's seemingly in the clear for Saturday night's matchup after being removed from the injury report Thursday. Despite his knee having been a noted issue throughout the campaign, Lewis has just one missed game on the 2020 campaign, with nine receptions, 98 yards and three touchdowns to his ledger.
Dec 17, 2020 3:36 PM EST
Lewis (knee) was listed as a limited participant on Tuesday's practice estimate.
Analysis: The 36-year-old typically is limited or absent altogether during practices early in the week. He should be fine for Saturday's game against the Panthers, operating in a blocking role with occasional pass-catching upside.
Dec 15, 2020 3:04 PM EST
Lewis (knee) will play in Sunday's game against the Lions, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: Lewis went through his typical routine of limited practice reps, and the veteran is good to go for the divisional bout. The 36-year-old contributes most as a blocker, but he could possibly see more work in the passing game with Jace Sternberger (concussion) ruled out.
Dec 11, 2020 2:15 PM EST
Lewis was a non-participant during Thursday's practice due to a knee injury.
Analysis: It's not great news for the veteran, as he was listed as a limited participant just a day earlier. Lewis appears in jepoardy of missing Sunday's game against Detroit, as he'll likely need to log some practice time Friday in order to suit up. With both Lewis and Jace Sternberger (concussion) missing practice Thursday, Robert Tonyan is currently the only healthy tight end on the roster.
Dec 10, 2020 3:28 PM EST
Lewis (knee) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.
Analysis: Lewis begins the week again with his limited practice regimen, as has been the case for much of the season. Expect Lewis to play in Sunday's game against the Lions, but he'll likely need to continue to stay on the practice field. The veteran continues to be the third option at tight end this season, compiling eight catches for 92 yards and three touchdowns this season.
