As the time has come and gone for teams to reach that 53 man mark now is time for teams to monitor that waiver wire. With the Bills releasing Thad Lewis it tells me EJ has to be ready right? With only Jeff Tuel left on the roster I don’t think Lewis would have been cut if he wasn’t. The only reason I can think of is that one word experience. The Bills currently had none at all going into Saturday but now were down one more guy that knew anything about this play book.

When EJ went down that was the last thing Bills fans wanted to hear but thankfully the severity of the injury was said to be minor. A small procedure was done with his knee and a timetable was set for his return for week 1. After that coach Marrone let everyone know that practice (at least 3) was necessary to play against the Pats. With Manuel only attending the meetings and not participating that had fans questioning his readiness. This last preseason game EJ was out throwing prior to kickoff and that was encouraging. That said I wonder now why the Bills would have released both of the QB’s they acquired/signed about a week ago. Matt Leinart and Lewis will now be looking for work before the start of the season.
