Niners' Lewis Suffers Second Concussion In 11 Days

By  | 

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) - San Francisco strong safety Michael
Lewis has sustained his second concussion in 11 days and will be evaluated this week before he can return to the field.

Lewis, who has played sparingly this preseason because of injuries, took a knee to the helmet in the first quarter of San
Francisco's 20-13 win at Dallas on Saturday night.

A Pro Bowler in 2004 with the Philadelphia Eagles, Lewis also
suffered a concussion during a joint practice with the Oakland
Raiders on Aug. 18.

Coach Mike Singletary said that Lewis had been "100 percent
cleared" to return to action for the Cowboys game. His latest
injury is unrelated to the earlier concussion, Singletary said

Lewis also missed extensive time this spring with an abdominal
injury. He is a key performer in San Francisco's 3-4 defensive
scheme, recording 257 tackles, 3½ sacks and two interceptions over the past two seasons.
