The New Orleans Saints were dealt a brutal preseason blow on Tuesday. Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reported on his Twitter account that the Saints will begin the season without cornerback Keenan Lewis.

It's a rough blow for this secondary, and as Kevin Patra of NFL.com followed up with, the Saints will now start CB's Brandon Browner and Delvin Breaux until Lewis gets back in action.

Breaux is an interesting name, largely due to the fact that there's a ton of hype surrounding him this offseason. It'll be interesting to see how he can fill the void left by Lewis' injury, but regardless, Saints fans obviously hope their talented corner can return sooner than later.
