Lewis Knee Injury Isn’t SeriousDecember 5th, 2012
The Bucs’ No. 1 kick returner, LeQuan Lewis, a member of the famous Fearsome Foursome, “E.J., Leonard, Danny and LeQuan,” went down on the field against Denver with a knee injury. But his prognosis is better than expected, so Greg Schiano said today.
Schiano said Lewis may not be ready for Sunday against Philadelphia, but he should be back soon after that.
The Lewis injury likely means another Lewis might sniff the field in key third-down situations. That would be Myron Lewis.
It’s unclear whether Michael Smith will finally come off the inactive list, aka the Michael Smith list. The Bucs might opt for Roscoe Parris to return kicks or wide receiver Chris Owusu, even though Smith is listed on the depth chart as the backup return man.
