Saints News, 11/10/14: Keenan Lewis Says He'll Be Ready For Bengals This Sunday

New, comments

From Mike Triplett at ESPN.com: Keenan Lewis' first response when asked for an update on his knee injury Monday morning was, "I'll be ready. I'm just getting ready for the Bengals [on Sunday]." But it sounded a little more like that's Lewis' desire than an official diagnosis. In fact, the New Orleans Saints' cornerback specifically said, "Y'all gotta ask coach [Sean] Payton. I don't want to diagnose myself. I'm pretty sure he met with the doctors and he'll give a better response than me." Not quite. As usual, Payton declined to shed any light on Lewis' injury or any others, saying only, "We'll look at all those players with any potential injury and be smart."
