Thad Lewis should be good to go on Sunday

Bills quarterback Thad Lewis missed Wednesday’s practice with injured ribs.  Coach Doug Marrone said that Lewis is 50-50 to play.

For now, take the over.

Per a league source, Lewis is expected to play on Sunday, despite the missed practice.  It remains to be seen whether he’ll practice on Thursday, or whether Jeff Tuel and Matt Flynn will again split reps.

Even if, as we’re told, Lewis will play, missing practices will impair his preparation for the 8-0 Chiefs.  Still, he’s likely a better option than Tuel or Flynn, who was available to be signed recently for a reason.

Also missing practice on Wednesday were running back Fred Jackson (knee), receiver Steve Johnson (hip), and defensive tackle Kyle Williams (Achilles).

Limited in practice were receiver Marquise Goodwin (elbow), linebacker Manny Lawson (hamstring), quarterback E.J. Manuel (knee), running back C.J. Spiller (ankle), and guard Kraig Urbik (knee).

Yes, Manuel practiced.  But Marrone has said their no chance Manuel will play on Sunday.  There’s a much greater chance Lewis will play.  Which improves the chances that the Bills will score an upset over the last remaining unbeaten team.

    Not to take any credit from the Chiefs, but how many backup QBs can a team possibly play against in a season?

    Used to backups were the Achilles heal of KC. Hopefully the Dorsey/Reid era get rid of that ridiculous abnormality. It’s worked so far, let’s hope it continues.

    I’d like to see Thad jump on the Chiefs and get an early lead. Will be interesting t see what the Chiefs are made of.

    Lewis won’t play.

    That means – He’s not Tim Taylor, but it’s still Tuel Time.

    With the NFL Sack leaders coming to town he may want to lay out another week and let Flynn take the beat down that is coming.

    I’ll take the Jackson/Spiller tandem over the KC backfield any day.
