Description: According to the Seattle Times, Trufant (back) has officially been activated from the PUP list.
Insight: Trufant is likely only to see action on passing downs this week against Dallas, which bodes well for the success of the Cowboys' passing game. Trufant will eventually take back his starting LCB spot from Josh Wilson, as long as he doesn't have any setbacks. (SportsBuff.com)

Description: Trufant (back) will not return to practice this week. (Seattle Times)
Insight: Trufant is likely to start the season on the Physically-Unable-To-Perform (PUP) list, which would cost him the season's first six games at least. He is easily the Seahawks' top DB, so any time he misses hurts the team's pass defense. (SportsBuff.com)

Description: According to the Tacoma News Tribune, Trufant could start the regular season on the physically-unable-to-perform (PUP) list due to a disc issue in his back.
Insight: If Trufant doesn't pass a physical on September 5, the day in which rosters are cut to 53, he could remain on the PUP list. That would cost him the first six weeks of the season, and would be an obvious detriment to the Seahawks' pass defense during the first half of the season. (SportsBuff.com)

Description: Trufant (back) is, according to Seahawks' head coach Jim Mora Jr., out indefinitely with a disc issue in his back. (Danny O'Neill of the Seattle Times, via Twitter)
Insight: Trufant has not practiced at all during training camp, and his status for Week 1 is uncertain. Losing Trufant for a significant time period once the games count would hurt the Seahawks' pass defense a lot. (SportsBuff.com)
