Patriots' Dion Lewis: Looking at 8-10 week recovery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewis -- who is slated to undergo what is being described as a "relatively minor" procedure on his left knee, figures to be sidelined for about 8-10 more weeks, the Boston Herald reports.

The report suggests that Lewis' left ACL -- which was repaired last November -- is sound, with the procedure being characterized as a clean-up. Based on this recovery estimate, there appears to be a good chance that Lewis is trending toward starting the coming season on the Patriots' PUP list, but on the plus side, the report solidifies the notion that Lewis has a good chance of playing this season. In his absence, look for James White to see added change-of-pace work in the New England offense, with the roster prospects of the likes of Tyler Gaffney, Donald Brown and even D.J. Foster boosted by the backfield void created by Lewis' injury.

Patriots' Dion Lewis: Knee cleanup on tap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewis -- who tore his ACL in Week 7 last season -- needs to undergo what NFL Network's Ian Rapoport describes as a "knee cleanup."

Per CSN New England, Lewis' procedure does not "involve the ACL or any other ligaments." That said, given how close we are to the start of the regular season, it's quite plausible that Lewis will open the 2016 campaign on the Patriots' PUP list, a scenario that would cost him at least six games of action. With this news item, opportunity knocks in the form of added change-of-pace duty for James White, while the roster prospects of either Tyler Gaffney, Donald Brown or even D.J. Foster are possibly aided by the situation.

Patriots' Dion Lewis: Remains sidelined
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald suggests that he "wouldn't be shocked" if Lewis (knee/PUP) doesn't practice until Week 1.

While such an outcome is speculative, the fact remains that as the Patriots approach their second preseason game Thursday night against the Bears, Lewis remains on the team's PUP list and without a concrete timetable for a return to practice. Lewis, who tore his ACL last November, was able to make an appearance during the Patriots' OTAs in June, but his continued absence from practice in training camp would appear to leave open the possibility that he could potentially miss time, or at least be worked in slowly at the beginning of the coming season. When healthy, Lewis is an elusive back, capable of handling a portion of carries, while providing a dangerous pass-catching option out of the Patriots' backfield.

Patriots' Dion Lewis: No reported setbacks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

ESPN's Mike Reiss relays that he has been told that Lewis' (knee) continued presence on the Patriots' PUP list isn't a result of any setbacks.

Reiss further notes that the "expectation of those close to Lewis was that the team would take it slow with him because preserving him for the 16-game regular season is the goal." A timetable for the running back's return has yet to be outlined and once he does resume action, it remains to be seen how the Patriots will be inclined to handle his workload. Reiss points out that Lewis "was on the field for 66 percent of the team's offensive snaps before injuries (first abdomen, then knee) altered the course." Given that the 5-foot-8, 195-pounder is coming off an ACL injury, it is fair to speculate that the Patriots might be inclined to scale back Lewis' touches some this season, with keeping him on the field for the long haul in mind.

Patriots' Dion Lewis: Still sidelined
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Among the Patriots players on the team's preseason PUP list, Lewis (who underwent ACL surgery this past November) is the only one who has yet to be spotted on the field at training camp.

Per the report, other Patriots players on the list have been seen attending practice and doing rehab work on the field while their healthy teammates work, thus making Lewis' absence worth noting. In advance of camp, things seemed to be moving along well for Lewis, who actually took part in the team's final spring practice that was open to the media. When asked about the running back's status Thursday, coach Bill Belichick noted, "well, he's on PUP, so, there are certain things he's not allowed to do as far as team walkthroughs and things like that. But the meetings, all the teaching things that we do, he certainly participates in those." Predictably, Belichick didn't provide an estimate of when Lewis might return to action, with the running back's continued absence prompting Ben Volin of the Boston Globe and CSN's Michael Felger to ponder the possibility that Lewis could even be a candidate to remain on PUP to start the coming season.
