The head coach of the Vikings, Kevin O'Connell, and other members of the organization have been in frequent contact with Lewis, who is in excellent spirits." O'Connell acknowledged the extent of the injuries at a Monday news conference, noting that he was able to communicate with Cine after being transported to the hospital.
