Lewis is In 10/7/13
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. - Thad Lewis will be the Buffalo Bills interim starter after the team elected to stay in-house in its search for an interim replacement for injured rookie quarterback EJ Manuel. Coach Doug Marrone announced on his weekly radio show Lewis was promoted off the Bills practice squad and will start Sunday when Buffalo hosts Cincinnati.
Manuel is expected to miss at least a few weeks and potentially longer after spraining his right knee in a 37-24 loss to Cleveland Thursday. Buffalo acquired Lewis in late August in a trade with Detroit after Manuel was sidelined with a left knee injury and veteran Kevin Kolb sustained a season-ending concussion.
