Saints vs. Panthers Final Injury Report: Drew Brees & Jahri Evans Out, Keenan Lewis Questionable

New, comments

Saints cornerback Keenan Lewis may make his first appearance of the 2015 regular season this Sunday vs. the Panthers. Jairus Byrd, however, will not.

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

The Saints will be without starters Drew Brees and Jahri Evans this Sunday as they take on the Panthers in Carolina.

The good news is that cornerback Keenan Lewis is listed as questionable, which means we could see him play for the first time during the 2015 regular season.

Those hoping to get their first Jairus Byrd sighting of 2015 will just have to continue to wait. Maybe next week?

For the Panthers, start linebacker Luke Kuechly is doubtful to play Sunday because of a concussion.

Here is the full injury report:
