Lewis to have ankle surgery

Posted 5 p.m.



Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis will undergo surgery on Wednesday to repair torn tendons in his left ankle.

The procedure will be performed by Dr. Jim Amis at Good Samaritan Hospital.

The Bengals team schedule will not be altered, and assistant head coach Paul Alexander will stand in, in the event of any Lewis absence.

"The timing of this is not what I wanted," Lewis said in a statement Tuesday, "but I've been counseled it's the best plan to ensure that I can be fully productive during the regular season."
