Keenan 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 New Orleans Saints ' porous defense tries to at least finish this season respectfully.
Keenan 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 New Orleans Saints secondary signed Chris Owens earlier this week to add depth in place of Lewis.
Keenan Lewis (hip) has been ruled out for Sunday's game in Indianapolis.
Lewis seemingly returned from his early-September hip surgery too soon, as he barely saw the field in his three appearances. Even with Delvin Breaux stepping up as the top cornerback, Lewis might eventually have a starting job, if he can get actually get healthy.

New Orleans Saints cornerback Keenan Lewis (hip) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Dallas Cowboys .
Lewis carried a timetable of four-to-six weeks, and he'll likely make it back on the shorter end of the estimate. He may have his snaps limited to start things off, but there's no question he'll eventually have an every-down role, assuming his hip holds up. It's unclear whether Lewis will replace Brandon Browner or Delvin Breaux , even though Browner's performance in recent seasons suggests he should be kept far away from the field.
