Hewitt's ability to practice in limited fashion Thursday is a good sign, given that he was a non-participant earlier this week. It remains to be seen whether the former Dolphin will be healthy enough to suit up against Miami on Sunday, but Hewitt stands to receive some rotational defensive snaps if he does play.
Hewitt (knee) was a non-participant in Wednesday's practice.
The nature of Hewitt's knee injury remains undisclosed, and the linebacker should be considered questionable for Sunday's game against the Dolphins, his former team. Kevin Pierre-Louis should serve as Darron Lee's primary backup if Hewitt is sidelined for any amount of time.
Hewitt has spent the past three seasons with the AFC East-rival Dolphins, with his best season coming in 2016 when he recorded 64 tackles, one sack and a pass defensed. Hewitt could compete with Avery Williamson for the starting middle linebacker role after Demario Davis left for New Orleans in free agency.
The addition of Hewitt, who was previously cut by the Dolphins in training camp, brings the roster back up to 53 men. Hewitt will provide depth at linebacker after the team released veteran Rey Maualuga on Nov. 18 following his arrest a day earlier.
