Former Duke Quarterback Lewis Named Bills Starter Versus Bengals

Former Duke University quarterback Thad Lewis will be promoted from the Buffalo Bills’ practice squad and start on Oct. 13 against the Cincinnati Bengals, coach Doug Marrone said today.

A 25-year-old who has played in one National Football League game, Lewis replaces rookie starter EJ Manuel, who sprained his right knee in a 37-24 loss to the Cleveland Browns on Oct. 3. Manuel was replaced in the game by rookie Jeff Tuel, who completed eight of 20 passes for 80 yards, with an interception.

Undrafted out of Duke, Lewis started last year’s season finale for the Browns against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He was 22-for-32 for 204 yards, one touchdown and one interception in a 24-10 loss, and was waived in the offseason.

Marrone has said Manuel will miss a few weeks while he recovers from a sprained lateral collateral ligament in his right knee.

The Bills (2-3) host the Bengals (3-2).
