Keenan Lewis OK After Spending the Night in the Hospital
New Orleans Saints cornerback Keenan Lewis missed practice on Tuesday and spent the night in the hospital. Lewis was suffering from stomach pains yesterday and doctors advised that he stay overnight for observation. Lewis’ injury does not appear to be serious and he should be able to return to practice on Wednesday.
It might have come as a little scare to the organization and fans since Lewis was the team’s biggest offseason acquisition. However, Lewis appears to be fine and this injury seems to be only a minor setback. The former-Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback was brought in during the offseason to bolster the Saints’ secondary, and he is expected to be one of the starting corners.
Lewis signed a five-year, $26.5 million contract with the Saints after leading the NFL with 23 passes defended last season. He should bring much of the same defensive abilities that he brought with the Steelers. Furthermore, Lewis could prove to be quite the upgrade at cornerback.
The Saints were desperate to improve their secondary after they gave up 7,042 yards, the most in NFL history, last season. With the addition of Lewis, the Saints also have Jabari Greer and Patrick Robinson as their top cornerbacks. Lewis and Greer will likely be the starters with Robinson coming in somewhere in the rotation.
Lewis was a huge pickup for the Saints and they are hoping that he can help strengthen their secondary. Also, with Rob Ryan as the new defensive coordinator, the Saints’ defense should vastly improve — to be honest, the defense has nowhere to go but up.
