Lewis has been placed on the Saints' physically unable to perform list to start training camp, Mike Triplett of ESPN NFL Nation reports. Lewis had sports hernia surgery in January and took reps during offseason workouts, but the team has still placed hi on the PUP list, which comes as a bit of a surprise. He'll likely be able to play sometime in the preseason, but it's unclear when that will be. Look for Delvin Breaux and Damian Swann to see some extra reps while Lewis is kept out of practice.
Lewis (hernia) participated in team drills during the Saints' OTAs and should be ready for training camp, The Oregonian reports. Lewis underwent sports hernia surgery in January, his third time under the knife since last season. Nonetheless, having taken reps in team drills just five months after the surgery bodes well for his availability for training camp. His return to the fold in the Saints' secondary should presumably bolster a unit that ranked near the bottom of the league in nearly every major defensive category in 2015, including an NFL-record 45 surrendered touchdown passes.
Lewis underwent hip surgery Monday, The New Orleans Advocate reports. Lewis was placed on season-ending injured reserve recently due to hip and knee complications, and had surgery on his hip labrum Monday to correct that ailment. The veteran will now aim to get healthy ahead of next season, while the Saints' porous defense tries to at least finish this season respectfully.
Lewis (knee, hip) was placed on season-ending injured reserve Thursday, Mike Triplett of ESPN.com reports. Lewis finishes his season with just six tackles in six games, as the knee and hip injuries he's nursing -- along with a preseason sports hernia -- conspired to shorten his campaign. The depleted Saints secondary signed Chris Owens earlier this week to add depth in place of Lewis.
Saints cornerback Keenan Lewis (hip) has been ruled out for Sunday in Indianapolis. Lewis seemingly returned from his early-September surgery too soon, as he barely saw the field in his three appearances. Lewis might eventually have a starting job if he can get actually get healthy.
