With an open spot on their active roster, Buffalo made cornerback Cam Lewis the 53rd player on the roster, elevating the practice squad player on Thursday.

Lewis was elevated to the active roster late last week after Josh Norman was placed on injured reserve with a hamstring injury, but reverted back to the practice squad earlier this week as part of the new practice squad rules under the COVID-19 roster amendments.

Lewis, a University at Buffalo product, saw his first NFL regular season game action last Sunday as he got six snaps on special teams.

Bills add DT and LB to practice squad

Buffalo also made two additions to their practice squad Thursday. The Bills signed DT Brandin Bryant and LB Deon Lacey.

Bryant, 26, has spent time on the practice squads of the Browns, Jets and Dolphins the past few seasons, and he also spent two seasons in the CFL with Winnipeg and Montreal (2018 & 2019).

Lacey, 30, returns to the Bills after spending the 2017 and 2018 seasons with Buffalo where he served as a core special teams player.

The linebacker spent last season with the Dolphins, a team where he has also had a pair of stops in his career.

The Bills suffered some injuries at the linebacker position in Week 1 against the Jets. Lacey's addition adds depth and insurance at the position.

To create an extra opening on the practice squad, Buffalo released DT Chris Slayton.
