Saints place Tommylee Lewis on injured reserve, release J.T. Barrett – (NOLA.COM) Saints News

To make room for the additions of defensive lineman Jay Bromley and practice squad linebacker Darnell Sankey, the New Orleans Saints placed wide receiver Tommylee Lewis on injured reserve and released quarterback J.T. Barrett. 
Lewis had only seen five snaps on offense through two games, contributing mainly as the Saints’ primary return man. He debuted as the Saints’ opening day kickoff returner, but yielded the job last week to quarterback Taysom Hill. 
It is unclear who will take primary punt return duties in Lewis’ absence. 

He was on crutches in the Saints locker room Wednesday (Sept. 19) and was listed on the Saints participation report as having a knee injury. 
Barrett saw time with the Saints in the preseason, completing 6 of 11 attempts with an interception, and spent the first two weeks of the regular season on the Saints practice squad.
