The Jets have placed left guard Alex Lewis on the NFI (non-football injury) list.

Lewis’ status recently had been unclear. He was not active for last weekend’s loss to Miami and did not practice in the early stages of this week. The injury report stated that he missed practice for reasons that were not related to injury. The Jets hadn’t provided much information.
Ian Rapoport provides some more information.
After a week of intrigue, the #Jets place G Alex Lewis on the NFI list as he seeks medical help for a non-football issue. The team gave him its blessing and will pay him while on the list. The hope is he’s back when his situation is handled and better.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) December 4, 2020
We all wish Lewis the best.
The final injury report of the week was also released on Friday.
Notably for the Jets on the report Pat Elflein is listed as questionable. Elflein started in Lewis’ place last weekend against Miami and will presumably be the starting left guard going foward.
Starting right tackle George Fant is also questionable. Fant missed last weekend’s game against the Dolphins.
Aside from that the Jets appear to be pretty healthy going into this game against the Raiders.
