On Wednesday, PFT reported, via a league source, that quarterback Thad Lewis will play against the Chiefs on Sunday despite having injured ribs.

Lewis missed practice again on Thursday, leaving Jeff Tuel and Matt Flynn to take the reps with the first-team offense. Bills coach Doug Marrone was asked about the report after the session.

“I’m hoping the league source is right,” Marrone said, via Mike Rodak of “Because I really don’t know right now. It’s 50-50. Trust me.”

Marrone offered a bit more optimism in regard to running back C.J. Spiller. Marrone said that he “feels good” about Spiller making his return to the lineup after sitting out last week to rest his injured ankle. With Fred Jackson and wide receiver Stevie Johnson also practicing on Thursday, it looks like a full supporting cast will await whoever takes the snaps against Kansas City.

  1. If you want your QB to hold the ball and curl into the fetal position under the pass rush then Matt Flynn is your guy.

  2. Trust me.

    Anyone that actually trusts what any NFL coach says to the media, I have several bridges I’d like to sell.

  3. I have had this as the game KC loses for a long time now, but really it is quite possible that they win it because of absolutely inept QB play from Flynn or tuel. the KC D will destroy them if they don’t get a “break”

  4. I haven’t seen Flynn play since his remarkable game for the Packers. But getting beat out by rookies in 2 camps doesn’t give me a lot of optimism. I think Jeff Tuel has the makings of a good one, but, he’s not there yet. So…….. I’m hoping Lewis starts and that the other two are really learning fast.
