Kansas City Chiefs safety Kendrick Lewis' shoulder injury, suffered late in the team's preseason loss to St. Louis on Saturday, may be serious enough to keep him out for an extended period of time. But it will not end his season, according to Chiefs coach Romeo Crennel.
SB Nation's Arrowhead Pride has the relevant quotes from Crennel:
"He injured the same shoulder he injured before," Crennel said. "It's a different injury. He doesn't have to have surgery or anything like that but he has to rest that shoulder and have him immobilized before we can start some movement exercises and see how quickly we can get him back."
Lewis will be replaced in the short term by Abram Elam, who signed with the Chiefs in June.
The Chiefs' next preseason game takes place August 24 against the Seattle Seahawks.
