There also was some positive news with linebacker Vontaze Burfict being cleared to practice after beginning camp on the Active/Non-Football Injury list. And tight end Tyler Eifert was walking around the locker room without the protective boot he’s been wearing since undergoing ankle surgery in May.
“We’ve kind of hit the gambit now — soft tissue, concussion, we’ve got it all going on,” Lewis said. “Hopefully this will be our low point and we’ll continue to get healthier as we go. It is part of playing football. Unfortunately some of the guys get hurt. You put the roster together as best as you can to try and be ready for those and you just knock on wood and hopefully we don’t get too many in one position.”
