Lewis popped up on the injury report this week when he didn't practice Wednesday due to a foot injury, and it has ended up being serious enough to keep the defensive back sidelined for Week 1. Lewis was expected to primarily be a contributor on special teams this season, so his absence won't have to much of an impact on the Titans.
Lewis did not practice Wednesday due to an apparent foot injury, Erik Bacharach of tennessean.com reports.
The Titans haven't released much information regarding Lewis' status heading into Week 1, but there is reason for concern. Despite listed as a two-deep safety, Lewis was expected to be a contributor on special teams. Lewis' availability could be made more clear as the week progresses.
Lewis apparently suffered an arm injury during last Wednesday's practice, but the veteran safety appears to have recovered. Now healthy, the 29-year-old should see starting snaps at the safety position with Jonathan Cyprien (knee) having been placed on injured reserve.
Lewis has made 81 starts since entering the NFL in 2010, but his career may be on life support after he was unable to find work last season upon being released by the Ravens in March 2017. He'll vie for a depth role at safety with Tennessee during training camp.
