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 dies 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 went down with a hamstring injury in Monday's victory over the Cardinals, but his presence at Wednesday's practice indicates the issue was not serious. Barring any setbacks, he figures to play his usual special teams and depth cornerback role in Sunday's game 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.
