Thad Lewis, who was elevated from the practice squad to start, suffered a sprained foot during the game. He completed the game but was seen riding an exercise bike throughout the game during defensive drives to stay loose. He was seen after the game wearing a boot and had an X-ray done.
"They said the x-rays looked good, so I guess that’s positive, not negative. It’s a good thing. We checked it out. I should be fine. We did the test, and I should be fine. That’s a great sign," he said.
Lewis said he could not remember when the injury happened. He ended the day 19-of 32 for 216 yards and two touchdowns through the air, He rushed for a third score but fumbled once after trying to extend a scramble for extra yards.
"Overall, I was happy except for the turnover. I thought he was trying to do too much. He just has to put the ball away and not turn the ball over. That would be the one thing I was disappointed in," coach Doug Marrone said.
Lewis is technically Buffalo's fourth-string quarterback. Starter EJ Manuel hurt his knee in last week's loss to Cleveland. Kevin Kolb is out for the year after getting a concussion in the preseason. And Jeff Tuel remained on the bench Sunday after going only 8-of-20 in relief of Manuel in Cleveland.
Multiple Minnesota-based reporters flying into Buffalo for the Wild's game Monday against the Buffalo Sabres tweeted they saw Matt Flynn on that flight. He was cut by Oakland earlier this year. He's previously spent time in Green Bay and Seattle. The Bills tried out Dennis Dixon and Pat White last weekend Dixon joined Buffalo's practice squad.
