The Bills brought Matt Flynn in yesterday for depth, but coach Doug Marrone said he still expects Thad Lewis to be able to play Sunday against the Dolphins.
Tests came back clean on Lewis’ foot sprain, and Marrone said he “feels good” about Lewis’ availability Sunday.
That didn’t stop them from adding a guy with experience, to go with Lewis and Jeff Tuel while they wait for E.J. Manuel to recover from a knee sprain.
“We were talking about bringing him in for a workout prior to the game,” Marrone said of Flynn, via Mike Rodak of ESPN.com. “What we’re doing is trying to make sure that we have enough players on our roster, with the amount of injuries we’ve had, so that we’re backed up with people who can go out there and be able to do it.”
That’s becoming hard for the Bills, who have struggled to keep a passer on the field all season.
Flynn’s looking at his latest chance as a clean slate, after being cut by the Raiders after a disastrous loss to the Redskins.
“I’m happy I’m getting a fresh start,” Flynn said. “One game isn’t going to affect my overall confidence or my belief in what I can do.”
Of course, the one game he had for the Packers in 2011 set him up for life, so he probably shouldn’t scoff at the power of one game.
