Ex-Huskies hurt by NFL rule

Posted by Bob Condotta

Many NFL teams are holding mini-camps right now, or have just completed them. And such camps are a good chance for new guys to make an impression.

Unfortunately, a couple of recent ex-Huskies trying to make rosters have been hurt by an NFL rule that doesn't allow fourth-year seniors to participate until their school holds graduation. This often impacts UW players more than a lot of others since Washington is on the quarter system --- final exams don't end until next week.

Marcel Reece is not able to take part in Oakland's mini-camp, which is going on right now, due to the rule, and Roy Lewis was unable to take part in some practices for Pittsburgh last week (I'll admit I'm a little confused on Lewis since I thought he was a five-year college guy after transferring, but maybe there's something different about his case).

As a fifth-year senior, Anthony Russo is eligible to participate in the Seahawks mini-camp right now, but he has been unable to participate the last two days due to an unspecified injury.
