It’s worth mentioning that the NFL changed the rules regarding injured reserve for the 2020 season and players can return from the list in just three weeks.
Lewis, 26, wound up going undrafted out of Pittsburgh back in 2017. He later signed on with the Cardinals but was waived coming out of the preseason.
From there, Lewis had brief stints with the Patriots, Bills, Colts, Eagles and Dolphins before Washington claimed him off waivers this past July. Unfortunately, he was once again released at the start of the season.
The Giants added Lewis to their practice squad a few months ago before promoting him to their active roster soon after.
In 2020, Lewis has appeared in five games for the Giants and recorded 13 tackles, no interceptions and a pass defense.
