Lewis expects to be back in two weeks

Panthers starting DTs Maake Kemoeatu (ankle) and Damione Lewis (shoulder) will benefit from the Panthers' first round bye and should be near full health in two weeks.

Both missed the team's regular season finale against the Saints. Kemoeatu's 6'5/350-pound frame will be crucial to the Panthers' playoff success. They'll face either the Vikings or the Eagles in the second round.
