Bills' Edwards misses practice Wednesday

Buffalo Bills quarterback Trent Edwards missed practice on Wednesday as he continues to deal with the effects of the second career concussion he sustained in the Bills' Week 6 victory over the New York Jets.

Edwards, who suffered a concussion in a Week 5 loss to the Arizona Cardinals in 2008, was not even on the sidelines today as the Bills began prep work for their Week 7 tilt with the Carolina Panthers.  Backup quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick took all of the first-team reps at quarterback, and considering the facts currently present, the chances that Fitzpatrick makes his first career start at quarterback for the Bills are enormous.

Also missing practice Wednesday were safety Donte Whitner, right tackle Jonathan Scott (both of whom, according to BuffaloBills.com, were also not in attendance), cornerback Terrence McGee, tight end Shawn Nelson and defensive tackle Kyle Williams.

Veteran safety Bryan Scott, who missed three straight starts with a high ankle sprain, returned to the practice field on Wednesday on a limited basis.  So, too, did receiver James Hardy, who spent the first six weeks of the season on the Reserve/PUP list as he continued to rehab from 2008 knee surgery.  He is not yet on the active roster, as the Bills have a full three weeks to evaluate Hardy before promoting him to the active roster.  The team can make that move at any time, and obviously, if and when they do so, they'll need to release a player.
