ORCHARD PARK N.Y. (AP) - The Buffalo Bills have signed free-agent quarterback Matt Flynn in their latest bid to shore up an injury-depleted position.
Flynn arrived in Buffalo a day earlier and spent the Monday morning working out in the team's fieldhouse in front of general manager Doug Whaley, coach Doug Marrone and offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett.
Though Flynn's workout had been scheduled before Buffalo's 27-24 overtime loss to Cincinnati on Sunday, the Bills (2-4) could be in need of another starter after Thad Lewis sprained his right ankle against the Bengals. Lewis said tests were negative, but it's uncertain whether he will be ready to play at Miami (3-2) on Sunday.
Lewis was off the practice squad last week to fill in for EJ Manuel, who is out indefinitely with a sprained right knee.
