With an open roster spot after placing cornerback Josh Norman on injured reserve last week, the Buffalo Bills have signed cornerback Cam Lewis from their own practice squad to their active 53-man roster.
Lewis played his college football at the University at Buffalo. He was elevated to the team’s game day roster last week as a “practice squad elevation,” but immediately reverted back to the practice squad, as per NFL rules. That’s not the case this time.
The team also announced it has signed linebacker Deon Lacey and defensive tackle Brandin Bryant to the practice squad.
Lacey had been with the Bills in 2017 and 2018, playing all 16 games each year, primarily on special teams. He played the 2019 season with the Miami Dolphins, also playing in all 16 games. The Bills are currently banged up at linebacker, with starters Tremaine Edmunds (shoulder) and Matt Milano (hamstring), as well as backup Del’Shawn Phillips (quad) missing practice Wednesday. Backup linebacker Tyrel Dodson (neck) did practice on Wednesday, but on a limited basis.
Bryant has split time with several teams in both the NFL and CFL since signing as an undrafted free agent with the Seattle Seahawks in 2016. He’s played in four NFL games, all last season with the Cleveland Browns.
