Free agent Keenan Lewis is negotiating a settlement with the Saints in an injury grievance he filed against the team.
The Saints released Lewis before the 2016 season after he battled numerous hip injuries. He has undergone multiple operations since and publicly stated the Steelers discovered a "failed surgery" when he visited with them last season. CB Delvin Breaux missed most of training camp last year with a leg injury team doctors diagnosed as a contusion before a second opinion showed a broken fibula. The Saints have since fired team doctors Deryck Jones and Misty Suri. Apr 17 - 7:51 PM

Date:

Free agent Keenan Lewis will visit the Steelers on Saturday.

Lewis began his career with Pittsburgh before landing a five-year deal with New Orleans in 2013. The Saints cut him after he suffered a hip injury in training camp last summer and he has yet to resurface. Lewis also battled injuries in 2015 while earning poor marks from ProFootballFocus. The former third-round pick turns 31 next month.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Gerry Dulac reports the Steelers are concerned about Keenan Lewis' hip.

It is the same issue which at least partly played a role in Lewis' release in New Orleans. With concerns about his health, it is unlikely the Steelers sign Lewis. ESPN's Josina Anderson reported the Lions, Jets, and Cardinals are also interested, but Lewis will need to get healthy first.

Free agent CB Keenan Lewis will visit the Steelers on Tuesday night.

Lewis was linked to the Steelers by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Gerry Dulac on Monday. Lewis was actually a third-round pick of the Steelers in 2009 before leaving for the Saints in 2013. Cut by New Orleans at least partly due to health concerns, this visit will likely be to check on the status of Lewis' balky hip. ESPN's Josina Anderson reports the Lions, Jets, and Cardinals are also interested.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Gerry Dulac reports the Steelers "would entertain" signing free agent CB Keenan Lewis, but his hip is a "big concern."

It was reported Lewis had been dealing with a hip injury for about a week before he was released by the Saints this past Friday. The 30-year-old was a third-round pick of the Steelers in 2009 and spent the first four years of his career with them. Pittsburgh has been trying to remake its secondary this year.

Saints released CB Keenan Lewis.

Lewis opened training camp on active/PUP, and had been sidelined for the last week with a hip issue. His latest injury wasn't season ending, but his release suggests the Saints had concerns he would not regain his form. It's still a surprise considering the move saves just $850K in cap space. With Lewis gone, P.J. Williams projects to start opposite Delvin Breaux.

Saints CB Keenan Lewis (hip) said he hopes to be ready by Week 1.

After he played in just six games because of multiple injuries last season, the Saints should not be holding their breath. Lewis is sidelined with hip and abductor strains, but the hip is the real concern considering he underwent surgery on the area in December. New Orleans signed Cortland Finnegan as insurance on Friday.

Saints CB Keenan Lewis is sidelined with hip and abductor strains.

FOX 8 New Orleans' Sean Fazende reports the injury is not season-ending, but that phrasing suggests it could keep Lewis out for a while. Lewis played in just six games last season due to multiple injuries and underwent hip surgery in December. P.J. Williams will likely replace Lewis in the starting lineup. He has reportedly been a "standout" during camp.
Thu, Aug 11, 2016 11:39:00 AM

Saints activated CB Keenan Lewis (knee) off the active/PUP list.

Lewis missed the first week of camp after undergoing knee, hip, and sports-hernia surgeries over the past year. He jumped right back in with the starters.
Wed, Aug 3, 2016 09:47:00 AM

Saints coach Sean Payton said CB Keenan Lewis (knee) is close to fully healthy.

Lewis started training camp on active/PUP, but is day to day. The Saints are moving him slowly to avoid setbacks. Lewis remains on track for Week 1.
Wed, Jul 27, 2016 06:11:00 PM

Saints placed CB Keenan Lewis (knee) on the active/PUP list.

Lewis is recovering from a number of issues, including knee surgery, hip surgery, and a sports-hernia operation. The Saints will bring him along slowly, so consider him more day-to-day. Lewis turned 30 earlier this offseason and is coming off a 2015 season where he played just 109 snaps across six games.
Mon, Jul 25, 2016 06:09:00 PM

Saints CB Keenan Lewis (knee, hip, sports hernia) expects to practice on the first day of camp.

Lewis cautioned he might not do everything right away, but any practice is a good sign coming off what amounts to a lost season. If -- and it is a big if -- Lewis can get and stay healthy, the Saints have the makings of a solid cornerback duo after Delvin Breaux established himself as a quality No. 1 last season.
Sat, Jul 23, 2016 12:46:00 PM

Saints CB Keenan Lewis (knee, hip, sports hernia) participated in team drills on Thursday.

It is a big step forward for Lewis, who had been limited by sports-hernia surgery as well as lingering knee and hip issues. Along with Delvin Breaux, Lewis would give the Saints a solid starting duo if healthy, but that is a massive if. 2015 third-rounder P.J. Williams could be a fall-back option.
Thu, Jun 9, 2016 01:52:00 PM

Saints CB Keenan Lewis (knee surgery, hip surgery, sports-hernia surgery) has yet to resume practicing.

It's apparently the sports-hernia operation that's primarily keeping Lewis sidelined. Lewis' 2015 was an injury-ruined disaster, while he wasn't effective in a 16-game 2014. If healthy, Lewis will be a candidate to start opposite Delvin Breaux, but the Saints could opt to go with 2015 third-rounder P.J. Williams.
Thu, May 26, 2016 04:33:00 PM

ESPN's Mike Triplett does not believe the Saints need an "overhaul" at cornerback if they are able to stay healthy.

Triplett has a point. If healthy, Keenan Lewis and Delvin Breaux would form a solid duo, but it would be risky for the Saints to rely on Lewis to stay healthy. He was limited to six games last season with a hip injury which required three surgeries and turns 30 in May. It is possible Lewis bounces back, but the Saints need to add some insurance.
