Report: Keenan Lewis OK, but misses practice after trip to the hospital


Cornerback Keenan Lewis was a big acquisition for the Saints this offseason, so it wasn’t good news to learn that he was one of three Saints players not to practice as the team started its mandatory minicamp on Tuesday.

Saints coach Sean Payton would say only that Lewis wasn’t at practice, but it doesn’t sound like there’s reason to worry about an extended absence for Lewis despite the fact that he just spent a night in the hospital. Nakia Hogan of the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports that Lewis went to the hospital with stomach pains and doctors elected to have him spend the night under observation.

Lewis has been released from the hospital and a source tells Hogan that doctors don’t believe Lewis is suffering from anything serious. He may return to practice on Wednesday, the second day of the three-day minicamp.

Lewis jumped from the Steelers to the Saints after signing a five-year, $26.5 million contract with New Orleans as a free agent. He’ll join Patrick Robinson and Jabari Greer as the top three corners in a defense run by new coordinator Rob Ryan.

    Welcome back to the humidity, Keenan. Get better, and you’ll stop tossing cookies in about 3 weeks.

    Saints fans don’t have to worry about Lewis coming down with an illness. He can’t catch anything.

    He can bat them down though.

    I said it before. The Saints Ownership & Management has no control over the coaches and the team with all the injuries and inflated contracts. You’ll be at the bottom of the league along with the Raiders where you belong in no time.

    His stomach has to get used to all the fried foods again, he’ll be fine. I get like that sometimes when I go back home.

    Its just anxiety and separation pains since he isnt on the same team anymore with his BFF, Mike Wallace.
