Lewis out of hosptial after collision

Saints kick returner Michael Lewis was back at the team’s facility Monday afternoon following a short hospital stay after he collided with a teammate in the morning workout.


Lewis and safety Mel Mitchell ran into one another during drills and Lewis was taken off the field on a stretcher and brought to a local hospital as a precautionary measure.

That\'s still a sore point with me. The team -can- afford to put turf in the Dome. Senior management (or the owner) just prefers to eat extreme injuries as opposed to spending the $$.

You don\'t win Superbowls when your players on are crutches at game 16.

Yeah, some field turf would be nice, but it always confused me as to why it makes that big of a difference. I mean, you\'re either landing on cement covered by a thin layer of BS carpet (current dome turf), or you\'re landing on cement covered with a thin layer of a grass-like substance with rubber in it. I can see how the latter is preferable, but any way you slice it you\'re still landing on cement... that\'s the way i look at it....

Looks like beerman will be ok! AP reported that he and Mitchell were working in different areas of the field which would have you believe that they were practicing a different set of plays at the time. Mitchell stated that he was blocking FOR Lewis on what was a short punt when they accidentally collided. Will Petis gets chance over the next several days to show his ability while getting more reps fielding punts and kickoffs. Let\'s hope that Michael will recover 100% to form while resting. God Bless!

Correct me if I am wrong, but I believe that I remember reading last year that Deuce did not feel comfortable on field turf, and as far as I am concerned, What Deuce wants Deuce gets.

I think once Deuce finds the right shoe (its different for different players) he\'ll love it.
I wonder if his high ankle sprain would have been prevented if we had Field turf. I don\'t know
