Lewis fractured his kneecap during the play-off semi-final at MK Dons in May and manager Darren Ferguson does not expect his number one to resume full training until the middle of August.
He has travelled with the first-team squad to Portugal but Paul Jones, who completed a permanent move from Exeter last month, will probably start against Crystal Palace at London Road on August 6 with Joe Day as back-up.
"Joe is coming along nicely, but he has no chance for the first few games," Ferguson told the Evening Telegraph.
"I'd expect him back in full training in the middle of August and ready to play soon after that."
