Wednesday Injury Report: Lewis Improving

When first-year player LeQuan Lewis suffered a knee injury in last Sunday’s game at Denver, causing one Bronco player to wave frantically to the Buccaneers’ sideline, the initial fear was that the young cornerback/kick returner’s season was over.  That may not be the case, however.

“I think [it's] not as bad as maybe it appeared initially,” said Head Coach Greg Schiano on Wednesday.  “I don’t know if it will be this week but I don’t think it will be long term.”

Lewis did not practice on Wednesday and, as Schiano indicates, the injury may be enough to keep him out of Sunday’s game against Philadelphia.  However, he could be available for the remainder of the stretch run.

Lewis was one of three Buccaneers who didn’t practice to start the week, but the team’s list is relatively brief.  Philadelphia has submitted a much deeper injury report, though many of its main concerns have been going on for some time.  QB Michael Vick and RB LeSean McCoy our both suffering from concussions, and Head Coach Andy Reid has already said that rookie Nick Foles would finish the season under center.  McCoy hasn’t played since Week 11, and the team also recently placed leading receiver DeSean Jackson on injured reserve.
