Buffalo Bills cornerback Levi Wallace, dealing with a sprained ankle, has landed on the injured reserve list. The team announced the move, which will sideline Wallace for 21 days, on Wednesday afternoon. In his place, the team has promoted Cam Lewis.
This is Lewis’s third stint with the team this season. He was promoted from the practice squad for Week 1, signed to the active roster ahead of Week 2, and released before Josh Norman’s activation in Week 4. In three games with the Bills, Lewis appeared on 15 special teams snaps, didn’t play any defensive snaps, and hasn’t yet recorded a statistic.
Wallace, who started four games for the Bills, had to exit early in Week 4 with his ankle injury. He has 22 tackles, one tackle for loss, two passes defended, and an interception this year.
To make up Lewis’s place on the practice squad, the Bills have brought back their good friend Antonio Williams. The undrafted rookie running back must be racking up the frequent flyer miles in traveling to Buffalo, because he’s been signed and released from the Bills around a half dozen times since the summer began.
The earliest Wallace can officially return to practice is October 29th, which would target Week 8 against the New England Patriots. Notably, the Bills elected not to use the same injury designation on Matt Milano (pectoral), who the team also deemed “week to week” in postgame press conferences.
