Kansas City Chiefs safety Kendrick Lewis said on Twitter last night that he had a successful surgery.
Later in the evening, Nick Wright of 610 Sports Radio tweeted that Lewis had surgery on a shoulder injury he suffered in the season finale against the Denver Broncos.
According to Wright, Lewis suffered the injury midway through the game and played through the pain. In case you needed one, that is yet another reason to like Kendrick Lewis.
Lewis had a very nice sophomore season for the Chiefs. He doubled his tackle total from 30 to 60 in his second year. He also turned in 10 pass defenses and three interceptions, one of which he returned for a TD.
The return of Eric Berry next season should only help Lewis be more effective. The fact that he improved this season without a player like Berry next to him is a good sign.
Here’s to a speedy recovery for Kendrick.
