Mild foot sprain for Thad Lewis

The Bills got more than they could have fairly expected from quarterback Thad Lewis, and he may miss less time than expected after a late injury.

A league source tells PFT Lewis’s MRI revealed no ligament damage, and he will be labeled day-to-day with a mild foot sprain.

Lewis threw for two touchdowns and ran for another in Buffalo’s overtime loss to the Bengals, who have struggled keeping quarterbacks on the field all season. He was promoted from the practice squad last week to start in place of E.J. Manuel, and more than held his own.

Manuel’s expected to miss several more weeks, so there’s a chance for him to add to his resume if he can get back on the field. The Bills are bringing in Matt Flynn for a look in case, and the way their season’s going, they can’t have too many hanging around.

  1. Thad Lewis looked pretty good yesterday, especially with the long ball. Although formerly on the practice squad, he has been with the team since the last week of pre season. I expect he will start against Miami…

  2. Its too bad Lewis wasn’t there for the Browns/Bills game. With him supplanting Manuel, we might not have lost that game. He looked a bit more comfortable than Jeff Tuel did, and only made one big(Fumble)mistake.

  3. Thad looked good yesterday. He ran the read-option nicely especially on the opening drive and threw the ball well. If the defense hadn’t let the team down yesterday he would’ve won the game. Hope he’s ready to go against Miami.

  4. so…this makes 9 QBs on Buffalos roster in the past year in Buffalo. Ryan Fitzpatrick, Tavaris Jackson, Tyler Thigpen, Kevin Kolb, Jeff Teul, Matt Leinart, Thaddeus Lewis, EJ Manuel? Am I missing any?

    Aaron Corp from the PS last season maybe?

    The Bills are finally competitive and we lose our QB. We find out the backup is competent enough to take on a top 5 NFL D…and he goes down. Its like destiny wants it to be Teul time and we keep saying no 😛
