Source: Saints cornerback Keenan Lewis undergoes hip surgery Monday _lowres


Keenan Lewis underwent his second surgery of the season on Monday, undergoing a procedure to repair a labrum in his hip, a source told The Advocate.

Lewis, who was placed on injured reserve on Thanksgiving, has never gone through a season like this one, and he issued a message on his Instagram account.

“God got me, one down and one more to go,” Lewis wrote in the Instagram post. “I love my family, friends and the whole Who Dat nation. I’ll shake back, promise ya.”

Lewis, who first underwent surgery to repair a sports hernia at the end of training camp, missed the first three games and tried to come back, but his hip was never quite right.

The veteran corner, expected to be a starter, played just 106 snaps for the Saints due to the injuries.
