49ers | Michael Lewis will not return to team

San Francisco 49ers SS Michael Lewis (personal) missed practice Friday, Oct. 1, for "personal reasons" and didn't board the team's flight to Atlanta, reports CSNBayArea.com's Matt Maiocco. According to Lewis' agent, Rodney Williams, Lewis will not return to the team and has asked to be released. Lewis was told Friday that there would be a reduction in his playing time to get "the young guy" on the field. The young guy is presumably FS Taylor Mays. However, earlier in the week, Lewis was told there would be no change to his status, according to Williams. Also per Williams, he and Lewis have heard different things from different people in the organization. When asked who is calling the shots for the 49ers, Williams answered, "That's the problem. I don't know, and I don't think they know."
