Lewis is in line for a larger role now that Logan Ryan (leg) is out for the season, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports.
Lewis averaged 52 snaps per game between Weeks 4 and 7 this year but has fallen out of the rotation almost entirely since then. Ryan's injury Sunday opened the door for Lewis to again see the field, and he responded with a season-high nine tackles and a pass defensed. He'll figure to see significant time for the remainder of the year if he can maintain Sunday's high level of play.
Lewis recorded nine tackles and pass defensed in Sunday's 17-0 win over the Giants.
Lewis led the team with nine tackles, his highest mark in a single-game since 2014. He was called into a bigger role after Kenny Vaccaro was forced to exit the contest with a concussion. Depending on Vaccaro's progress this week, Lewis could be in line for more snaps in Week 16 against Washington.
Lewis (foot) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports.
Lewis was held out of Sunday's win over the Jaguars due to a foot injury but appears to have fully recovered. Barring any setbacks, Lewis seems on track to suit up as a depth safety against the Eagles on Sunday.
Lewis was originally deemed questionable for the contest, but the Titans have opted to keep him sidelined. The decision is surprising, as he was a full participant at Friday's practice. His absence should open up more potential playing time for Dane Cruikshank and Brynden Trawick in the depth safety role.
Lewis (foot) was a full participant in Friday's practice and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Jaguars, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports.
This is the best Friday designation that Lewis, who hasn't suited up for a game since 2016, has had this season. If he is able to play Sunday, don't expect him to have any IDP impact, especially since he could have a cap on his snap count.
