After suffering a concussion in the team’s previous game, New York Giants’ wide receiver Roger Lewis will travel to Cleveland.
New York Giants wide receiver Roger Lewis will reportedly travel with the team to face the Cleveland Browns this Sunday.
In New York’s last game, Lewis suffered a concussion after picking up a big first down against the Chicago Bears. He is officially listed as questionable for the Giants’ upcoming matchup with the Browns.
However, as Dan Duggan of NJ Advance Media pointed out, Lewis’ traveling likely means he will be a go for Sunday. Players experiencing concussion symptoms suffer from discomfort during flights, meaning for the Giants to bring Lewis to Cleveland likely means he will be cleared to play.
Which is an indication that Lewis is in the clear. If he was still experiencing symptoms, they likely would leave him home https://t.co/Ng4woxjW4Y

Lewis was demoted on the depth chart following a disappointing string of in-game drops, but has shown signs of improvement since. He came up big when New York needed him against Chicago, hauling in a key eight yard catch that went for a first down. The catch came mid-way through the second-quarter on a third down conversion to keep a Giants’ drive alive. The New York drive would eventually end in a field goal to put the Giants within one score of the Bears.
Unfortunately, Lewis came up from the catch shaking his head, resulting in his being removed from the game before the start of the next play by the league’s injury spotters.
Lewis has recorded five catches for 71 yards and two touchdowns this season. His inconsistencies catching the football have prevented him from seeing regular playing time, despite his abundant flashes of NFL caliber talent. Expect to see him continue to develop and improve as a pass catcher as the season progresses.
