Bills release QB Matt Flynn

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- The Buffalo Bills released quarterback Matt Flynn on Monday.

Flynn was signed on Oct. 14, one week after starter EJ Manuel injured his knee. Flynn was inactive for his first two games and did not play in Sunday's loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.

This is the second time Flynn, 28, has been released this season. He had been let go by the Oakland Raiders last month after being acquired in an offseason trade with the Seattle Seahawks.

Manuel has been cleared to return but the decision on whether he plays Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers will be made by coach Doug Marrone.

Flynn's release leaves the Bills with three quarterbacks on their 53-man roster: Manuel, Thad Lewis and Jeff Tuel. The team also has Dennis Dixon on its practice squad.

To replace Flynn, the Bills signed fullback Evan Rodriguez.
