Coach Dick Jauron got right to the point Monday when discussing the quarterback situation, ruling Trent Edwards out for Sunday's game against the Houston Texans.
"Trent will not play this week. That's the, as far as I understand it from [head trainer] Bud [Carpenter] and our doctors, that's the proper protocol. That's the conservative approach and the approach we'll take," Jauron said.
That means Ryan Fitzpatrick will get his first home start as the Bills look to run their winning streak to three games. Jauron said Edwards is physically active now as he recovers from his second concussion in the span of a year.
"He'll work out today, he'll work out tomorrow and then we'll get to Wednesday and he'll start football workouts, but he won't play this week," Jauron said.
Jauron would not commit to Edwards as the starter when he's healthy. The Bills have their bye week after the Texans game.
"We'll cross that bridge when we come to it," Jauron said.
