Edwards to start, Owens misses practice

New, comments

The Buffalo Bills hoped to exit their bye week healthier. While, by and large, that's true, the team is still severely banged up entering their Week 10 game on the road against the Tennessee Titans.

Terrell Owens missed practice on Wednesday with what head coach Dick Jauron described as a strained hip. Owens practiced Monday, but the injury flared up late Tuesday. His status is uncertain for this weekend, but it looks like a situation that the Bills will monitor on a day-by-day basis.

The rest of the injury report: defensive end Aaron Schobel, defensive tackle Kyle Williams, linebacker Keith Ellison and cornerback Terrence McGee all missed practice Wednesday. The four defensive starters may not be available for this weekend's game, which could leave Buffalo severely short-handed in their front seven. Meanwhile, safeties Jairus Byrd and Donte Whitner, as well as offensive tackle Jamon Meredith and fullback Corey McIntyre, were limited.

In the least surprising bit of news on the day, Jauron named Trent Edwards his starter for the Titans game.

Buffalo needs to make a decision on whether or not to promote receiver James Hardy to the active roster. They'll make that announcement by 4PM; look for a FanShot confirming which player was released in order to make room for Hardy.
