ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — Head coach Doug Marrone announced Monday morning that Thad Lewis will be brought from the practice squad to the team's starting roster and will lead the team against the Bengals this weekend.
It comes as a free agent the team was trying to sign chose to take his talents elsewhere.
Josh Freeman's agent confirmed late Sunday night that his client has signed a one-year deal with the Minnesota Vikings.
Freeman was released by Tampa Bay last Thursday, hours before EJ Manuel was injured in Cleveland.
It's unclear when Manuel will be back on the field.
