It's not every day that an NFL player apologizes for skipping out on time with the media. In fact, it's basically never.
"As the leader of your team, it doesn't sit well with me to be on the sidelines," Lewis said about his injury. "But I was the biggest cheerleader out there on Sunday, and I was truly proud of the way we played as a team.
"I am doing everything in my power to get back as fast as I can, whether that's this week, next week or whenever it is, I am doing everything I can to be out there with my team. I want to play Thursday night, and I am making some progress."
Given that Lewis is making some progress, he probably can be excused for not answering questions for one day.
