The bye week has arrived at a good time for the banged-up Buffalo Bills, who are likely to get quarterback Trent Edwards back in the starting lineup for the next game at Tennessee on Nov. 15.
Coach Dick Jauron's bruised and battered team convened at One Bills Drive on Monday, a day after a dreadful 31-10 loss to the Houston Texans.
A team source confirmed that Edwards will return to the starting lineup barring any setbacks in his recovery from a concussion that forced him to miss the last two games and most of a third. Backup Ryan Fitzpatrick did win two of those games, but didn't wow anyone with his numbers, going 36 of 70 for 356 yards, two touchdowns, three interceptions and a 57.8 passer rating.
"[Head trainer] Bud [Carpenter] and his staff refer to this as a transition week," Jauron said. "Now what that means is [Edwards] transitions from a little bit of work to probably full activity."
