ESPN.com's Tim Graham is reporting that Buffalo Bills quarterback Trent Edwards and cornerback Terrence McGee will be placed on Injured Reserve, ending their 2009 seasons. Buffalo Sports Daily reported the same earlier this morning, and adds that safety-turned-linebacker Bryan Scott could end up on IR as well.
Edwards injured his ankle in just one series' worth of relief duty during Sunday's 17-10 loss to the New England Patriots. His injury ends a season in which he went from starting quarterback to loathed by much of the fan base.
McGee's injury is a shoulder injury. He returned to the lineup in early December after having arthroscopic surgery on his knee; with McGee on the shelf, Reggie Corner will become a full-time starter, and players such as Ellis Lankster, Ashton Youboty and Cary Harris are in for more playing time. Donte Whitner will likely continue to see nickel corner duty as well. Graham reports that McGee will undergo shoulder surgery on Wednesday.
Scott left the Patriots game with a concussion.
Additionally, with Ryan Fitzpatrick dealing with an ankle injury of his own, Buffalo might be forced to start second-year quarterback Brian Brohm this Sunday in Atlanta.
