Buffalo Bills starting quarterback Trent Edwards sustained a deep bruise to his right quadriceps during practice Tuesday night, and it’s unclear whether he’ll return to practice this week.
Coach Dick Jauron said trainers began treating the thigh injury immediately to reduce any potential swelling after Edwards walked off the field with a slight limp. Jauron said it was too early to determine whether Edwards would be able to practice Wednesday or play in Buffalo’s preseason game at Indianapolis on Sunday.
“We’ll just have to wait and see what tomorrow holds for it so I’ll wait until the morning,” Jauron said. “Sometimes they come back very quickly, and sometimes they don’t. Sometimes it turns into a deep bleeding thing and we’re hoping it’s not that.”
Edwards was hurt about 45 minutes into practice during 11-on-11 drills when he collided with running back Marshawn Lynch’s knee after handing off the ball. Edwards went down and lay on the field for about 5 minutes as team trainers examined his right leg. Also joining Edwards was Bills chief operating officer Russ Brandon.
