Jacksonville Jaguars v Indianapolis Colts

INDIANAPOLISThe Tyquan Lewis luck is, frankly, awful.

For a second straight year Lewis is hitting free agency rehabbing a ruptured patellar in his knee (the opposite knee from 2021).

He’s doing so once again after showing that, when healthy, he can be a consistent and versatile piece along the defensive line.

But you can’t ignore the health concerns for the 28-year-old.

Lewis, who was a 2nd round pick back in 2018, has played double-digit games just once in his 5 years in the league. He’s missed 34 of a possible 82 games in his career.

When Lewis was available though last year, Gus Bradley used him quite a bit.

Outside of DeForest Buckner, Grover Stewart and Kwity Paye, Lewis is probably the 4th most trusted defensive lineman.

Lewis is a guy the Colts have felt comfortable lining up outside on early downs, and offering some rush ability inside on passing downs.

Yes, the health of Lewis is a concern, and it’s why he’s not going to garner some major, multi-year contract for a second straight year.

Still though, given Lewis’ versatility and consistency, giving him a super injury incentive one-year deal would make a lot of sense.

The Colts have a couple of interesting defensive end/defensive line decisions to make in free agency with Yannick Ngakoue and Lewis.
