Kansas City Chiefs starting safety Kendrick Lewis is out with a shoulder injury that will keep him out for "a bit of time," according to SI.com.
Lewis' right shoulder is in a sling, but surgery won't be necessary, according to Chiefs coach Romeo Crennel.
"He has to have no surgery or anything like that," Crennel said, "but he has to rest that shoulder and immobilize it a little bit before we can start movement."
Crennel said Lewis had injured the right shoulder before, but indicated that this is a different type of injury than his previous one.
"He injured the same shoulder before," Crennel said, "(but) it's a different injury."
