NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - Saints corner and home-town hero Keenan "West Bank" Lewis' season is over.

The New Orleans Saints placed corner back Keenan Lewis on the injured reserve list Thursday, ending his season, according to the NFL transactions wire.

Lewis missed the first three games of the season after undergoing a sports hernia procedure and has been limited in the games he did play.

Lewis suffered a knee injury during the Saints loss to Washington on Nov. 15 before the bye week.

The Saints signed veteran defensive back Chris Owens to add depth to their secondary in the wake of Lewis' injury.
