Lewis (ankle) practiced in full Wednesday, so he's over his ankle injury, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.
Lewis was unable to play against the Rams in Week 1, but he's on track to be out there against the Falcons in Week 2. Dallas' secondary can use all the healthy bodies it can get against the high-powered Atlanta aerial attack.
Lewis (ankle) has been ruled out of Sunday's game versus the Rams, Clarence E. Hill Jr. of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.
Lewis hasn't been able to practice since suffering an ankle injury Aug. 20, so he'll be forced to sit out Week 1. Although Lewis wasn't expected to be a starter, it's a major hit to the team's secondary that is expected to start Trevon Diggs on Sunday. Lewis will look to get healthy before Week 2, when the Cowboys face another daunting pass attack in the Falcons.
Lewis (ankle) is not participating in Wednesday's practice, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Lewis is not in uniform Wednesday, and his only participation will come as a spectator. The nickel cornerback will only have two more opportunities to get on the practice field ahead of Sunday's season opener against the Rams.
Lewis (ankle) was spotted Sunday wearing a walking boot on his left foot, Calvin Watkins of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Lewis has been held out of practice since suffering an ankle injury Aug. 20, and he didn't suit up for Sunday's scrimmage. The fourth-year cornerback has just two weeks to get healthy ahead of the Cowboys' opener Sept. 13 versus the Rams.
Head coach Mike McCarthy said Lewis (ankle) isn't expected to practice this week, Rob Phillips of the Cowboys' official site reports.
Lewis twisted his ankle Thursday and will need a bit of time before getting back in action. An ankle twist isn't typically worrisome, but Lewis' timetable is cause for concern with just three weeks from the season opener. The soon-to-be 25-year-old cornerback averaged 37.5 defensive snaps per game in 2019 and is poised for a similar, if not increased, workload once he's healthy.
Lewis sustained a lower-leg injury during Thursday's practice, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.
The fourth-year corner was expected to see significant snaps in 2020 in the Cowboys' slot and in nickel packages. If Lewis' injury proves to be serious, it would open up more opportunities for Anthony Brown, Daryl Worley and fourth-round pick Reggie Robinson.
Lewis wrapped up the 2019 season with 51 tackles (38 solo) including four sacks, two interceptions on six passes defended and a fumble return for a touchdown.
The third-year corner solidified his spot as the Cowboys' top slot option, recording career highs in sacks and INTs as well as his first visit to the end zone. His 73.8 QB rating allowed on 47 pass attempts in his direction wasn't bad either, and with Byron Jones headed to free agency in the offseason, Lewis could become a key figure in the Dallas secondary in 2020.
Lewis notched six tackles (four solo), two sacks and one defended pass during Thursday's 26-15 loss to the Bills.
Lewis now has three sacks on the season. The third-year pro has thrived in his role as a nickelback through 12 contests, but his IDP upside remains somewhat limited due to his standing behind Byron Jones and Chidobe Awuzie on the depth chart.
Lewis scooped up a Daniel Jones fumble and returned it 63 yards for a touchdown in Monday's win over the Giants.
The score was the first of Lewis' career, and he also added a season-high six tackles to his ledger for the night. The third-year player remains behind Byron Jones and Chidobe Awuzie on the depth chart, limiting his IDP upside, but Lewis is having a strong season as a slot corner/nickelback, recording 19 tackles with a sack and an INT through eight games while allowing a paltry 38.0 QB rating on eight attempts in his direction.
Lewis notched four tackles (three solo) and an interception in Sunday's loss to the Jets.
The Cowboys' defensive back has just nine tackles on the season, and Lewis' interception Sunday was his first of the year. Until his production increases substantially, the 24-year-old cornerback should not be considered in IDP formats.
Lewis had 12 tackles (10 solo) and one interception in 15 games this season.
Lewis had a heavy workload during his rookie campaign in 2017, but he saw double-digit defensive snaps in only three games this season. The 23-year-old was entrenched as the Cowboys' No. 4 cornerback and worked mostly in dime packages. Lewis is likely to begin 2019 in a similar role with Chidobe Awuzie, Byron Jones and Anthony Brown all under contract next year.
Lewis will serve as the third cornerback with Anthony Brown (back) out of Sunday's game versus the Buccaneers, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports.
Lewis had tons of responsibility in his rookie season but has dropped to a majority special-teams role with Chidobe Awuzie healthy in 2018. Lewis will have an opportunity to prove he belongs again versus a strong Bucs passing attack and a chance to clinch the playoffs with a win.
Lewis collected 54 tackles and 10 passes defended, including an interception, in 15 games in 2017.
The third-round pick had worked his way into the starting lineup by the end of the season and made some big plays, although he also got burned a few times, something that isn't surprising for a first-year cornerback. Lewis figures to be a big part of a young and improving Cowboys secondary in 2018, although his IDP value likely will be limited.
Lewis is expected to retain a starting role at cornerback following the Cowboys' release of Nolan Carroll (concussion) on Wednesday, Conor Orr of NFL Network reports.
Carroll struggled in training camp and hadn't been performing well prior to sustaining a concussion in Week 2, with the head injury preventing him from taking the field ever since. Thus, it made sense for Dallas to cut ties with Carroll and the two years remaining on his contract, and Lewis' strong performance thus far only made that decision easier. The rookie out of Michigan has arguably been the Cowboys' best cornerback, averaging 5.5 tackles and 1.3 pass breakups per game, with his best performance coming against the Packers and two-time MVP Aaron Rodgers last Sunday. In the Cowboys' loss, Lewis recorded seven total tackles and defensed three passes. While he isn't quite on the IDP radar at this juncture, Lewis' stock is certainly on the rise, making him someone to keep an eye on for the future.
Lewis (hamstring) was absent from Wednesday's injury report, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.
Lewis went down with a hamstring injury in Monday's victory over the Cardinals, but his presence at practice two days later indicates the issue was never viewed as serious. Barring any setbacks, Lewis should assume a depth role in the secondary in Week 4 against the Rams.
Lewis suffered a hamstring injury during Monday's game against Arizona, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.
Lewis still managed to record six tackles despite suffering the injury, but it's unclear if the hamstring issue will linger into Week 4 against the Rams.
Lewis (hamstring) was inactive for Sunday's game against the Giants, Jori Epstein of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Lewis has been out with the hamstring injury for majority of training camp, but he was questionable for Sunday after practicing in a limited fashion this past week. Lewis should be seen as day-to-day heading into Week 2.
Lewis (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday night's game against the Giants.
Lewis missed significant time throughout training camp with the hamstring injury and now his status for Week 1 is in doubt. The 22-year-old was limited in practice this week, and the Cowboys' recent acquisition of Bene Benwikere will help provide some depth in the secondary if Lewis is unable to play.
Lewis said Wednesday that his ailing hamstring feels much better, but he remains day-to-day, Brandon George of The Dallas Morning News reports.
The former Michigan Wolverine has been sidelined since July 29. When healthy, the plan remains for him to compete for a supporting role in the Cowboys' secondary.
Lewis (hamstring) needs a few more days to recover and is not expected to play against the Rams on Saturday, Brandon George of The Dallas Morning News reports.
The University of Michigan product already missed out on the Hall of Fame Game. Lewis wasn't expected to make a a serious case for a starting position in Dallas, but he was expected to battle for a backup job behind Anthony Brown (hamstring) and Orlando Scandrick.
