Jamal Lewis, who spoke publicly for the first time Sunday since being placed on injured reserve with concussion syndrome, left the door open to return next season.
It was a dramatic turnaround from Nov. 1, when he said he planned to retire after this year. He backed that up a couple of days later, saying he wouldn't change his mind.
But Lewis, who's under contract with the Browns through 2010, admitted that he wasn't himself all season after getting knocked out cold in the opener against the Vikings. Ultimately, he was diagnosed with concussion syndrome. He's still seeing specialists in his hometown of Atlanta.
"You just don't know, really," he said about his future. "I'm just trying to let the concussion symptoms go away and get my head back to where it was and make a decision from there about my future. After I get everything straight up top, I can make a solid decision on that."
