Roy Lewis DB SEA Aug 22 '12
Seahawks CB Roy Lewis needs knee surgery and is out indefinitely.
He's likely an I.R. candidate just ahead of first cuts. Lewis has played nickel back in Seattle before, but Marcus Trufant is now penciled into that role.

The Seahawks failed to tender restricted free agent CB Roy Lewis, making him an unrestricted free agent.
Lewis has been a regular on special teams for Seattle over the past few seasons, and worked as the team's nickel corner in 2011. The Seahawks clearly felt as though he wasn't worth the $1.26 million minimum restricted free agent tender, but he could return at a lower salary.

The Seahawks will activate CB Roy Lewis (knee) off the PUP list before Sunday's game against the Bengals.
With Walter Thurmond and Marcus Trufant both out for the season, Lewis is expected to play mostly in nickel packages. In 14 games a season ago, he notched 26 tackles and one sack.

Seahawks placed CB Roy Lewis (knee surgery) on the reserve/PUP list.
Lewis is still recovering from a December knee operation. Signed off the practice squad in November 2009, Lewis was a solid contributor in Seattle's secondary last season, registering 26 tackles and a sack. As long as he returns to 100 percent health, he'll likely be kept around once he comes off the PUP list.
