Stroud May Be Out: Chan Gailey said several players are banged up but the only one who may not play Sunday is Marcus Stroud. He suffered an injury in the loss to the Patriots and has a chance at playing but is not practicing today. Paul Posluszny is practicing and if he gets through the next two days ok he should play.
Kelsay Gets Extension: Chris Kelsay has officially signed a contract extension with the Bills. We reported on Monday that he was cose to signing a new deal. It is a four year deal and terms were not disclosed but it is believed to be in the $24 Million range. Kelsay he is very pleased with the deal and it will allow him to finish his career in Buffalo.

Spiller Honored: C.J. Spiller was named the AFC Special Teams Player of the Week for his performance against the Patriots. He had a 95 yard kickoff return for a touchdown and 189 total return yards. He is the 88th player of the week the Bills have had.
Will Edwards Play In Buffalo? Trent Edwards is now a Jaguar but will he start or even play when they come to Buffalo a week from Sunday? The Jaguars and Jets are the two teams that put claims in on him interestingly they are the Bills next two opponents. The Jags got him based on being higher in the waiver order. Edwards is a quick learner so he should pick up their offense in time to play next week if needed. Jaguars coach Jack Del Rio is unhappy with the poor play of his starter David Garrard and his backup is out for the year after tearing his ACL in week 2. Edwards will likely immediately assume the number two role and could play in a week if Garrard struggles again against the Colts. It makes next Sunday's matchup much more interesting.

Edwards A Jaguar: The Jacksonville Jaguars have claimed Trent Edwards off of waivers. This can cause some problems for the Bills as Edwards will be back at Ralph Wilson Stadium a week from Sunday. He may be able to give the Jaguars inside information for the matchup between the two clubs. It is very unlikely Edwards would see action in the game.
Bills Re-sign Brown: The Bills decided to fill the third quarterback spot today. They have re-signed Levi Brown. He was a seventh round draft pick of the team and released during the final cuts.

Fitzpatrick On Release: Ryan Fitzpatrick said everyone was caught off guard by the decision to release Trent Edwards. It was difficult since Edwards was well liked in the locker room and harder for him since they were always working so close together over the past two years. It is a harsh business and Fitzpatrick said he has no choice but to throw himself into preparing for this week's game against the Jets.
Gailey On Release: Chan Gailey spoke to the media this afternoon and said Trent Edwards gave them everything they had but they just felt they weren't going back in that direction. They want to get a better look at Brian Brohm. They have yet to decide whether or not they will go to a third quarterback but he did say Levi Brown is an option they will consider. He called Edwards a fine young man who did not indicate he wants to move on. Brohm hasn't proven he's the backup but they feel he has a chance and they want to give him the opportunity to prove it. Gailey said Edwards handled the release professionally but was disappointed. The coach understands it was a fast progression from starting quarterback to release but he felt things were close all along and it wasn't an easy decision.
Bills Release Edwards: In a surprising move the Bills have released Trent Edwards. Chan Gailey will address the media later today to discuss the reason for the release. Ryan Fitzpatrick asserted himself as the starter with his good performance yesterday but Edwards did give them valuable depth at the position. There was talk the team was trying to trade him but there likely was no market for that. He will remain on waivers until tomorrow afternoon and will then become a free agent if he isn't claimed. Reports say the Bills will fill his spot by re-signing Levi Brown. He was released at the end of training camp and surprisingly wasn't put on the practice squad or signed by another team. Let us know what you think of the move by taking our poll on our homepage. Depth Chart.
