ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Linebacker Pat Thomas has been released by the Buffalo Bills after missing most of training camp with a nagging lower leg injury that prevented him from competing for a backup job.

Bills coach Dick Jauron said the move was made before practice Wednesday, one day before the Bills host the Detroit Lions in both teams' final preseason game. Thomas had been cleared for practice this week after missing part of the Bills' spring minicamps and most of training camp.

Thomas, a fifth-year pro, signed a one-year deal with the Bills in March after playing in 12 games with the Kansas City Chiefs last season.

The Bills also excused starting defensive end Chris Kelsay from practice, and he will miss Thursday's game to be with his daughter, who is having surgery in Chicago.
