|The Colts were already thin at safety before losing Melvin Bullitt.|
"The depth isn’t what we’d like to have there at safety, but hopefully we’ll continue to be OK. That’s probably the area where we have the least depth and that’s simply because of injury. You could never have imagined that both Jamie Silva and Bob [Sanders] would go down for extended periods in the same year, that’s just bad luck but it happens to every team. You can’t change it."DaJuan Morgan is the top backup with Brandon King, who’s being converted from cornerback, also on the roster.
"Lewis is a big, powerful safety who is most effective when lining up close to the line of scrimmage. He is an active safety who is quick to diagnose run plays and aggressive when supporting the run. Lewis takes good angles and has the power to take on and shed blockers. He looks to punish when tackling the ball carrier. He is not as effective when tackling in space and can be inconsistent in coverage. Lewis is a bit stiff in the hips and does not break down great for open-field tackles. He can struggle when trying to mirror receivers in their routes. He does do a good job of reading the quarterback's eyes to get a jump on the ball but lacks the quick transition and burst to close on the ball."
