With starting quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick and backup Trent Edwards both suffered ankle injuries in Sunday's 17-10 loss to the New England Patriots, Brohm is expected to get his first NFL start against the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday, a league source said. Interim coach Perry Fewell offered few details Monday on the severity of the injuries to Fitzpatrick and Edwards, but the source said Edwards suffered a high ankle sprain. Such an injury takes several weeks to heal. The Bills have two games remaining.
Neither Edwards nor Fitzpatrick were in the locker room Monday to comment. A pair of crutches rested in Fitzpatrick's locker.
