BuffaloBills.com is reporting that Buffalo Bills starting quarterback Trent Edwards has returned to the practice field today. Though he has already been ruled out from any sort of participation against the Houston Texans this coming Sunday, Edwards participated in individual drills on Wednesday, his first team activity since suffering his second career concussion on October 18.
It's not yet clear when Edwards will be healthy enough to return to the lineup, but he's helped out by the fact that the Bills have a bye in Week 9 - so he's essentially got two full weeks to continue his recovery. If backup Ryan Fitzpatrick continues to manage the Bills to victories, however, Edwards' return to the lineup may not come after his return to full health.
Also reported by BuffaloBills.com, (former?) starting strong safety Bryan Scott practiced on Wednesday. With Donte Whitner once again a non-participant today, Scott would likely start next to rookie sensation Jairus Byrd should he be available this weekend. Clearly, he's got another two days of practice to get through before that comes official, but this is a good sign for Buffalo's thin secondary.
Along with Whitner, who watched practice on Wednesday, OT Jonathan Scott missed practice, but was at team facilities working out. Not present on Wednesday were FB Corey McIntyre, TE Shawn Nelson and DT Kyle Williams.
