Due to injuries at the quarterback position, including a knee injury to rookie signal-caller E.J. Manuel, the Buffalo Bills were forced to activate Thad Lewis to the active 53-man roster and give him the start on Sunday afternoon against the Cincinnati Bengals.
The Bills put up a good fight and Lewis looked good, but they ultimately lost the game in overtime.
After the game, Lewis was added to the group of injured Bills quarterbacks and was forced to undergo x-rays and leave the stadium in a walking boot.
Now, reports are surfacing that the team has plans to work out former Green Bay Packers, Seattle Seahawks and Oakland Raiders quarterback Matt Flynn.
From Adam Schefter of ESPN:
Former Seahawks and Raiders QB Matt Flynn is in Buffalo, there to work out for Bills, via @mikerodak and me.

Flynn looked terrible during his start as a member of the Raiders, but he is one of the best options available on the open market.
Whether or not the team decides to sign him remains to be seen, but there is a real chance that the move could happen.
