Kansas City Chiefs Still Lack Timetable For Kendrick Lewis' Return

Kendrick Lewis has finally been active in practice for the Kansas City Chiefs. However, don't expect the starting safety to be ready anytime soon.

Lewis has yet to play in the regular season for the Chiefs due to injury and head coach Romeo Crennel says that he has no timeline in place. Still after sitting out for several weeks from practice, it's a good sign that he's now officially termed as "limited" for the team in practice rather than sitting it out.

"Well I know he's working to try to get better and he's going to do everything he can to get better," said Crennel when asked about a potential timeline for Lewis' return. "And whenever he's ready, he'll be out there. I'm not a doctor, so I can't speculate about how close he is or how far he is or things like that. I know that he started range of motion and he's doing better."

Lewis himself also didn't know when he would be able to return, saying that he will be ready to go when the team "unleashes" him. Instead he's just trying to stay ready for when his number is finally called again.

"I'm just trying to do my best at working and getting well and getting back out there," said Lewis after practice on Wednesday. "Don't know what the timetable is going to be, whenever my time is called I'll be back out there ready to go."

For now the team will continue to move forward with Abram Elam as the starter opposite Eric Berry at the safety position. With injuries to Brandon Flowers and Jalil Brown as well, the Chiefs are thinner than they'd like to be in the secondary. Hopefully Lewis can bolster the unit sooner than later, but don't expect him to play against the Buffalo Bills in Week 2.
