Lewis, who tore his left ACL on Nov. 8 and required a follow-up surgery on the knee (but not specifically the ACL), has been more visible during media-access periods in the locker room in recent weeks. Some who follow the team believe the Pats won't rush Lewis back, especially with a 5-1 record and James White playing well.
