Jourdan Lewis, a cornerback for the Dallas Cowboys, is expected to miss the remainder of the season. It is due to a foot injury he sustained during the fourth quarter of the team’s 24-6 victory over the Detroit Lions on Sunday.
Lewis underwent surgery Sunday night for a Lisfranc issue to his right foot, according to sources. With 8:25 remaining and the Cowboys leading 10-6, Lewis intercepted Lions quarterback Jared Goff, which led to the injury.
Lewis was able to intercept the low pass intended for wide receiver Tom Kennedy, the third of Dallas’ defense’s five second-half turnovers. Lewis eventually had to be carried to the locker room after requiring assistance getting there.
He was replaced by rookie DaRon Bland, who recorded an interception against the Washington Commanders on October 2, after missing one game due to a hamstring strain.
Lewis was replaced by Bland on Sunday, however the Cowboys also have veteran Anthony Brown who could play in the slot with Kelvin Joseph shifting outside and last year’s second-round draught pick, Bland. Lewis, a 2017 third-round pick, has a contract that runs through 2023. He has 8.5 sacks and eight career interceptions.
It will be interesting to see how Dallas Cowboys supporters respond to their team’s 24-6 win over the Lions because the final score scarcely really captures the first three quarters of play. Dallas is now 5-2 on the year after the victory and will next face the struggling Chicago Bears.
A bailed-out, slow offence that depends on defensive blunders and special teams was there in today’s game, meanwhile, which brought back the bitter remembrance that last year’s game had offered.
The Cowboys defence is among the best in the league, and saying that never gets old. It has been years since they have consistently praised fearsome defences, but this defence is actually exceptional
