QB Thaddeus Lewis will be elevated from the Bills practice squad and will start for the team on Sunday. Lewis was acquired by the Bills on August 25th in a trade with the Detroit Lions. Lewis went on to face the Lions in the Bills preseason finale, completing 7-of-16 pass attempts for 132 yards and a score after entering the game in the second quarter.  

QUOTE OF THE DAY
DOUG MARRONE, Buffalo Bills Head Coach on WGR 550
Q: What about Thad Lewis’ physical attributes or his intangibles have you liked?
A: He’s very bright; he’s a very bright young man. We threw him to the fire when he came in here from Detroit that was really just two or three days working on the offense. Now he’s been here, he understands it completely; we’ve got to put it to his strengths. He can run, so whether it’s read option or scrambling or extending a play, he has the ability to do that. He has a great arm, he really does. A lot of times with not just the quarterback position, but other positions is you have to create opportunity. You have to create opportunity to see what people have and they have to take advantage of it. He has a great opportunity for himself.
