Undrafted rookies Nate Askew and Keith Lewis made standout plays in Thursday’s loss to the Washington Redskins, but it appears it may not be enough to secure a roster spot with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this season.

Although the team has not yet made a formal announcement, according to the Tampa Bay Times, both Askew and Lewis are among seven players confirmed as cuts this morning as the Bucs are in the process of trimming their roster to 53 players by Saturday. Both players halted threatening drives with end-zone interceptions in Thursday's game. While not included on the 53-man roster, both Askew and Lewis are likely to rejoin the Bucs as members of the 10-player practice squad.

The Times also confirmed the cuts of cornerbacks Marc Anthony and Kip Edwards, fullback Lonnie Pryor, defensive end T.J. Fatinikun and linebacker Ka’Lial Glaud.
