Saints CB Keenan Lewis (knee) got in a limited practice on Friday.

He will likely be limited again on Saturday and listed as questionable for Monday night's tilt with Baltimore. Lewis said he felt "awful" physically after being limited to just 11 snaps against the Bengals Week 12. Even if he plays, Lewis will be at far less than 100 percent.

Saints CB Keenan Lewis (knee) was limited to 11 snaps in Sunday's loss to the Bengals.

After the game, Lewis said he felt "awful" physically -- a terrible turn of events for a Saints defense that desperately needed their shutdown corner on A.J. Green. Instead, Green got loose for 6-127-1. Given how bad Lewis looked and felt, it's hard to see him being near 100 percent for a Week 12 Monday nighter against the Ravens.

Saints LCB Keenan Lewis (knee) is active for Week 11 against the Bengals.

It's great news for the Saints as they look to slow A.J. Green, but it's possible Lewis could be on a snap count after his knee swelled to the size of a softball in Week 10. Inactive for the Saints are WR Robert Meachem, RB Pierre Thomas, RB Edwin Baker, RB Khiry Robinson, OG Senio Kelemete, OT Nick Becton and WR Nick Toon.

Saints CB Keenan Lewis (knee) practiced on a limited basis Friday and is listed as questionable for Week 11 against the Bengals.

His status is up in the air after suffering an injury in last week's loss to San Francisco that resulted in major post-game swelling. Below, we've linked a photo of Lewis' knee in case you were interested. A.J. Green owners should be. Lewis has been a shutdown corner over New Orleans' last three games.

Saints CB Keenan Lewis will have a Monday MRI on his knee.

Lewis was ruled out for the day in the second quarter of Sunday's loss to the Niners, but then came back on the field to hobble around in nickel and dime situations. His knee was very swollen after the game. Lewis' injury is worth monitoring closely for matchup purposes, as he has solid shadow ability.

Saints LCB Keenan Lewis (quad) returned to Sunday's game against the 49ers after being announced as "out."

The Saints have no use for your injury rules. Lewis was still limping around the field upon returning in the third quarter, and will almost certainly be limited for the game's final 1.5 quarters. Either way, it's a major bullet dodged for New Orleans.

Saints LCB Keenan Lewis was carted to the locker room with a left quad injury in New Orleans' Week 10 game against the 49ers, and will not return.

It's technically a "quad" issue, but the trainers were also looking at Lewis' knee. Lewis limped to the sideline for a brief evaluation, but was then carted off just before the end of the first half. If there's good news, it's that Lewis was spotted on the sideline in the third quarter. Brian Dixon is now in the game opposite Corey White.

Saints CB Keenan Lewis (knee/shoulder) is listed as questionable for Sunday night's game against the Packers.

Lewis has practiced on a limited basis each day this week, meaning it would be a surprise if he doesn't suit up. We're expecting him to shadow Jordy Nelson, which is somewhat of a concern even though Lewis had a very ineffective first three games of this season. When Lewis is right, he's among the better shadow corners in the NFL.

Keenan Lewis converted $4.5 million of his base salary over the next two seasons into bonuses.

Lewis' new four-year deal still runs through 2017, and includes a $4.4 million signing bonus. His $3.3 million 2014 salary has been slashed to $1.1 million, with his $4.1 million 2015 number cut to $1.8 million. The rest of the missing money will be paid out in future roster bonuses.

Saints LCB Keenan Lewis has agreed to a restructured contract.

Per ESPN's Mike Triplett, the deal saves a "little cap space this year." Lewis is coming off a solid season, so it's unlikely he's agreed to a pay cut. More than likely, some of his $3.3 million base salary has been pushed down the road in the form of a bonus.

Saints LCB Keenan Lewis (concussion) is listed as probable for the Divisional Round.

Lewis has cleared his concussion protocol and practiced in full this week. He was held out of the fourth quarter of Saturday's win over the Eagles, but won't end up missing any time. Lewis is the Saints' No. 1 corner.
Fri, Jan 10, 2014 06:24:00 PM

Keenan Lewis (concussion) practiced in full Wednesday.

Lewis, the Saints' No. 1 corner, was smothering DeSean Jackson in man-to-man coverage on Saturday night before his injury. His return to practice so quickly is big as New Orleans tries to spring the road upset as an eight-point underdog.

Keenan Lewis (head) practiced Tuesday, and expects to suit up for Saturday's Divisional Round game against the Seahawks.

"I'll be there Saturday," Lewis said. "I'll be ready to go." The Saints will officially update Lewis' status on Wednesday, but he obviously appears good to go. It's great news for a Saints team that needs all hands on deck as it looks to spring the upset. Lewis graded out as Pro Football Focus' No. 26 cornerback this season.

The Saints declined to update the status of CB Keenan Lewis (head) Sunday.

Lewis' injury nearly cost the Saints a win at Philadelphia on Saturday night. Before he exited with a likely concussion, DeSean Jackson had zero catches. After he left, Jackson promptly put a 40-yard catch on Corey White and later drew a 40-yard pass interference call on White. Lewis was a legit shutdown corner during his first season in New Orleans.
