Making Lewis active was somewhat of a formality, as the Pats appeared poised to do just that on Friday, but didn't make it official until just over 24 hours before their game against the Seahawks on Sunday night.

We had a story that said it would take a lot for Lewis to pass White on the depth chart, according to head coach Bill Belichick. Belichick seems happy with the consistency White has shown so far this year. Lewis would be a risky play this week given what we know about the state of the team's RBs. Lewis is worth a stash at least but right now waiting and seeing is probably the best course of action this week.
