Thad Lewis will start for the Bills this week

The Buffalo Bills have announced that they’ve signed quarterback Thad Lewis to their active roster and he’ll get the start this week.

It wasn’t the move that outside observers were expecting, but after a weekend of researching other options, the Bills have chosen to promote from within naming Thad Lewis their starting quarterback for Sunday’s home game against Cincinnati.

Bills head coach Doug Marrone confirmed the move during his weekly interview on Bills flagship station WGR Sportsradio 550.

“We have decided that we are going to call Thad Lewis up from our practice squad and he will start at quarterback for us this Sunday,” Marrone said.
