Buffalo Bills release CB Cam Lewis, will likely activate Josh Norman from IR

The Bills are making a CB roster swap

Matt Warren is Associate Director of NFL coverage for SB Nation and previously covered the Bills for Buffalo Rumblings for more than a decade.

The Buffalo Bills released cornerback Cam Lewis on Thursday, likely paving the way for Josh Norman to rejoin the active roster. Lewis was signed to the active roster on September 17th. The Bills’ roster now stands at 52 players with one open spot.

Norman was originally injured in training camp, hurting his hamstring while intercepting a Josh Allen pass and running it back. He was placed on injured reserve before Week 1 and this week is the first week he is eligible to return. He has practiced well all week and looks to be ready to go. Now the biggest question is whether he will start in Week 4 or if Levi Wallace will continue to hold onto the CB2 spot. He’s played 15 special teams snaps spread out over three games in 2020.

Lewis was signed as an undrafted free agent following the 2019 NFL Draft and has spent time on the team’s practice squad. He was called up in Week 1 under the COVID-19 rules and sent back to the practice squad before being officially signed to the active roster prior to Week 2. Lewis will need to clear waivers but should end up back on the Bills’ taxi squad this weekend.
