4th Rounder For McCargo: Reports says that the Bills get a 4th round pick for John McCargo. This is a bit of a blow since they traded up into the first round to get him.
McCargo Traded: The Bills did pull off one trade at the trading deadline but it wasn't the much anticipated addition of Tony Gonzalez. Instead there was a substraction, they traded John McCargo to the Colts for an undisclosed draft pick. McCargo was the one big bust of the short lived Marv Levy era as GM. They traded up to get him in the first round three years ago and while he showed flashes he never peformed consistently. What do you think of this trade?

Banged Up Players Practice: Trent Edwards wasn't the only hurt player to return to practice. Joining him on the practice field were Ko Simpson, Chris Kelsay, Roscoe Parrish and Ashton Youboty. Parrish is ahead of schedule in his recovery from thumb surgery and may play as early as this week. Simpson's hamstring injury wasn't that serious since it wasn't in the middle of the hamstring. Not practicing today were Aaron Schobel and Terrence McGee. Schobel hopes to play through ligament damamge in his foot. McGee remains out with a sprained knee at this time. Injury Page.
Edwards Expects To Start Sunday: Trent Edwards was able to participate in the full practice today and says he's fine and ready to play on Sunday. J.P. Losman took the first snaps of practice during a no huddle drill but Edwards took the remainder of the first team reps. He was sharp in practice as he said he slowed things down to ease himself back in after missing all of the bye week practices but didn't show any rust. He did have some headaches after the concussion but they have been gone since the weekend. He was given medical clearance to practice but will have a baseline test tomorrow to make sure his results are similiar to the test he took before the season. That is likely the last obstacle in keeping him from playing on Sunday.
Edwards Practices: Chris Brown is reporting on the team's website that Trent Edwards is practicing with the team today and taking part in at least individual drills. He was taking handoffs and throwing some passes. This is a good step towards him possibly playing on Sunday.
Bills Go Back To Work: The Bills get back to work today after a nice four day weekend to rest bumps and bruises and to get away from the game. Everyone is anxiously awaiting word on whether or not Trent Edwards will play this weekend. Don't expect Dick Jauron to give any more insight until Wednesday at least. Adam Schefter reports on the NFL Network that the Bills aren't in a rush to get Edwards back on the field as they want to make sure he's better. The Buffalo News reports he had what is called a "standard" concussion and he is feeling better but the team will give no word on whether or not he'll practice this week and play on Sunday.
Bye Week Help: The Bills got some help on the bye week as the Patriots got blown out 30-10 on Sunday night by the Chargers. This could be a double break for the Bills since San Diego was due for a breakout game and now they may have got it out of their system. The loss by the Patriots drop them to 3-2 and keeps the Bills in sole possession of first place in the division. The Patriots are tied with the Jets for second as New York beat winless Cincinnati yesterday 26-14. The Dolphins didn't join the logjam in 2nd place as they fell to Houston on a last second touchdown yesterday and fell to 2-3.
