Eagles TE Lewis out for Super Bowl

As if the potential lack of Terrell Owens isn’t bad enough, the Philadelphia Eagles are now¬†without the services of tight end Chad Lewis.

Lewis, who caught two touchdown passes in yesterday’s AFC Championship game, will require surgery on Wednesday for a “Lis Franc sprain” in his foot, which he suffered on his second TD pass. According to AP, this sort of sprain is more common in automobile accidents than TD passes. Which is funny, since the only thing I saw driving on Sunday was the Eagles…

L.J. Smith will take Lewis’ spot. The only other tight end on the roster is long snapper Mike Bartrum. That’s not good.
