Tampa Bay Buccaneers backup cornerback LeQuan Lewis injured his knee on Sunday during the team's loss to the Denver Broncos, and may not be able to play next week. Lewis was carted off of the field late in the game and was seen limping afterwards. Bucs head coach Greg Schiano said the team needs to know more before making a decision on Lewis' availability:
"We're waiting for some test results," Schiano said. "We will know better (today)."
The Buccaneers secondary is already experiencing depth issues, but the potential return of cornerback Anthony Gaitor from injured reserve could help alleviate some of those issues. Gaitor has practiced for the past two weeks, but has yet to be activated for a game.
Lewis, who joined the Bucs from the Dallas Cowboys earlier this season, has seven tackles and one interception so far this season. He's in his first season in the NFL out of Arizona State. Gaitor is in his second season out of Florida International, and has yet to play a snap this season.
