The New Orleans Saints have placed cornerback Keenan Lewis on season-ending Injured Reserve, Coach Sean Payton said at his Friday press conference.

Lewis, who had a sports hernia surgery earlier this season, had played in six of the team's first 10 games and did not start in any of the games. He injured his knee in the Saints' last game, a loss at Washington, while making a hit. Lewis had played in all 32 games in his first two seasons in New Orleans.

Delvin Breaux and Brandon Browner will be the Saints' starting corerbacks Sunday vs. the Houston Texans. The Saints signed cornerback Chris Owens to take Lewis' spot on the 53-man roster.
