Saints News, 10/22/15: Keenan Lewis Still Fighting his Way Back from Sports Hernia

New, comments

From The Advocate: Sean Payton confirmed Thursday that Keenan Lewis’ recovery from September surgery has not gone as smooth as hoped. Payton said Lewis has been battling soreness in the area and that he’s still trying to get his flexibility and range of motion back. “(The procedure) is fairly common and yet the recovery and repair can vary,” Payton said. “Especially at the corner position, it’s just getting comfortable enough.”
