Bills QB Edwards healthy, reclaims starting job

BY foxsports • November 11, 2009

The Bills are going back to quarterback Trent Edwards, who will start against Tennessee this weekend after missing two games with a concussion.

Coach Dick Jauron said Wednesday that Edwards has "earned the right" to start after the offense continued to struggle under backup Ryan Fitzpatrick. The Bills (3-5) opened the season 1-4 under Edwards, before he sustained his second concussion in a little over a year in a 16-13 overtime win at the New York Jets.

Fitzpatrick rallied the Bills to beat the Jets, and then went 1-1 in two starts. Buffalo's offense has sputtered for the past six games, and ranks among the worst in the NFL.

Edwards has been cleared to play after three weeks of rest, including the team's bye last week.
