Buffalo Bills quarterback Thaddeus Lewis (ribs) did not practice with the team on Wednesday, according to Bills reporter Joe Buscaglia. Lewis completed 22 of 39 passes for 234 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the team's Week 8 loss to the New Orleans Saints.
Fantasy impact: Lewis got nailed early in the game against the Saints. Although he's clearly still dealing with the aftermath, he did manage to play the whole game against the Saints.
The Saints are known for their high flying offense and Lewis spent most of the game trying to go to throw for throw with former Super Bowl MVP quarterback Drew Brees. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to realize that Lewis was in tough in that faceoff.
Brees threw for five touchdown passes in the game and looked unbeatable, while Lewis had to depend on a banged up running back in Fred Jackson (knee) and a limping top wide receiver in Stevie Johnson (hip flexor) to try and stay competitive.
Lewis faces a tough Kansas City Chiefs defense in Week 9. He is only worth starting in your fantasy lineup if your usual quarterback is hurt or on a bye week.
