ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — Buffalo Bills quarterback Thad Lewis has missed practice Wednesday because of sore ribs and is “50-50″ to play Sunday against the unbeaten Kansas City Chiefs, coach Doug Marrone says.
Lewis had taken off on a run up the left side, when linebacker David Hawthorne struck the quarterback with a helmet-first hit into the right ribs. Lewis fumbled the ball and had difficulty getting off the field, but continued playing in a 35-17 loss at New Orleans Sunday.
In his place, Rookie Jeff Tuel and free-agent addition Matt Flynn split the first-team reps.
The Bills (3-5) have lost three of four in preparing to host the Chiefs (8-0).
