Competitive Edge Analysis

Lewis (knee, hip) was placed on season-ending injured reserve Thursday, Mike Triplett of ESPN.com reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Lewis finishes his season with just six tackles in six games, as the knee and hip injuries he's nursing -- along with a preseason sports hernia -- conspired to shorten his campaign. The depleted Saints secondary signed Chris Owens earlier this week to add depth in place of Lewis.

Lewis (hip) has been ruled out for Sunday's game in Indianapolis.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Lewis seemingly returned from his early-September hip surgery too soon, as he barely saw the field in his three appearances. Even with Delvin Breaux stepping up as the top cornerback, Lewis might eventually have a starting job, if he can get actually get healthy.

Lewis (hip) is active for Sunday's game against the Cowboys.

Lewis (hip) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Cowboys.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Lewis carried a timetable of four-to-six weeks, and he'll likely make it back on the shorter end of the estimate. He may have his snaps limited to start things off, but there's no question he'll eventually have an every-down role, assuming his hip holds up. It's unclear whether Lewis will replace Brandon Browner or Delvin Breaux, even though Browner's performance in recent seasons suggests he should be kept far away from the field.

Lewis underwent surgery on his hip Tuesday and will miss the next 4-6 weeks, Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Lewis suffered an undisclosed injury a month ago and it appears that previous ailment and his surgery Tuesday could be related. He was considered a starter, so Delvin Breaux (undisclosed) or Kyle Wilson will now get an unexpected opportunity to start at the onset of the season.

Lewis (knee) is listed as active Sunday against the Bengals, the Saints' official site reports.

Lewis will tough out a knee injury suffered one week prior, but with an unknown snap count on tap, IDP owners should probably turn elsewhere for DB production.
