BEREA, Ohio (AP) -The Cleveland Browns were awaiting MRI results on running back Jamal Lewis' sprained right foot, an injury that knocked him out after one play in Sunday's loss to the New England Patriots.
Browns coach Romeo Crennel said Monday that X-rays on Lewis' foot were negative.
Lewis broke off an 11-yard run on his only carry in the Browns' 34-17 loss before leaving the game. He didn't feel the injury was serious and after having his foot re-taped looked like he was ready to return.
``He wanted to come back in and they tested him on the sidelines and jogged him up and down but the medical people didn't feel like it was enough so they held him out,'' Crennel said.
Lewis signed a one-year free agent contract with the Browns in March after spending the past seven seasons with the Baltimore Ravens. He had off-season surgery on his right ankle, but said the foot injury was not related.
Wide receiver Joe Jurevicius sustained a knee injury in the second quarter on Sunday and didn't return. X-rays were also negative and Jurevicius said Monday that he was feeling better.
Tight end Darnell Dinkins suffered a hand injury and was scheduled to see a specialist, Crennel said.
Also, safety Brodney Pool is not expected to miss any significant time with a thigh injury.
