Flintoff crashed into an advertising board during India's innings attempting to stop a boundary and appeared in pain. He managed to complete his overs - taking a career-best 5 for 56 - and was able to bat at his normal No. 6 position. During England's run-chase the ECB said he was feeling some stiffness behind his knee and on Saturday he went for a scan.
He will be reassessed by the medical team on Sunday ahead of the third match in the series at Edgbaston on Monday. Flintoff is just two matches into his international comeback following ankle surgery, which has kept him out of the England side since the World Cup.
Lewis, the Gloucestershire swing bowler, last played for England against New Zealand in the CB Series. He was named in the World Cup squad but didn't play before returning home early to be with his wife.
With Flintoff's fitness again under the microscope, and Ryan Sidebottom not considered for the first two matches of the NatWest Series because of a side strain, Lewis's call-up will provide another option for the selectors. India levelled the series on Friday with a nine-run at Bristol.
