The Bills have further pared their QB ranks.
The club has released Thad Lewis, PFT’s Mike Florio reported Tuesday. Lewis was competing for the top reserve role behind starting quarterback EJ Manuel.
The Bills have not been happy with the play of their backup passers. On Monday, they added ex-Bears quarterback Jordan Palmer and released Dennis Dixon.
The 26-year-old Lewis has completed 17-of-33 passes for 168 yards with two interceptions and no TDs in exhibition play. He has been sacked three times.
The departure of Lewis leaves Manuel, Palmer and Jeff Tuel as Buffalo’s quarterbacks. The Bills host the Lions on Thursday evening.
