Buffalo Bills claim DL Albert Havili, waive DT Marquavious Lewis

New, comments

An ankle injury held Lewis back in training camp

The Buffalo Bills waived defensive tackle Marquavious Lewis with an injury designation on Wednesday after the final practice of training camp. Lewis was an undrafted free agent who stuck with Buffalo’s practice squad through much of 2017, and was hoping to make the roster this season. He had been suffering from an ankle injury and has not been participating in team activities.

In his place, the Bills have claimed defensive lineman Albert Havili off of waivers from the Los Angeles Chargers. The 6’2” 255 pound Havili was an undrafted free agent rookie signed by the Los Angeles Chargers this year. Havili earned second team All-Big Sky Conference honors as a senior at FCS Eastern Washington. After beginning as a linebacker, Havili transitioned to the defensive line in his junior season. He recorded a total of 199 tackles and 12 sacks over the course of his collegiate career. Now the rookie has another shot to land on an NFL roster.
