The veteran corner suffered a Lisfranc fracture to his right foot in the Cowboys win over Detroit,
people with knowledge of the injury said, and already underwent surgery for the injury.
The cornerback landed awkwardly after his fourth-quarter interception in Sunday’s 24-6 win.
He was helped off the field to the sideline and was then taken to the locker room on a cart.
A Lisfranc fracture occurs in the arch of the foot and involves either a broken bone or torn ligaments.
Recovery time from the surgery falls in the range of five to six months.
Rookie DaRon Bland stepped in for Lewis earlier this season when the veteran slot
corner missed a game with a hamstring strain. That appears the most seamless way to proceed going forward,
but there are other options. Dallas could also chose to work Anthony
Brown in the slot more and turn to Kelvin Joseph, the team’s second round pick from last season.
