Jauron Leaves QB Carousel Open: Dick Jauron addressed the media in his usual media day press conference and the conversation quickly went to the quarterback situation. Jauron yesterday said J.P. Losman will start at quarterback because of the injury to Trent Edwards. He left the door open for Losman to keep the job with a solid performance. He said long term could be a week or more and it depends on performance and every position is open to competition and re-evaluated every week including quarterback. It appears that Losman has the chance to steal the job back.
Edwards Still Hurting: Trent Edwards said today that his wrist is still pretty swollen but doing a bit better today. He is unable to grip the ball or even shake hands. He hopes to be ready to backup J.P. Losman on Sunday but he won't throw until the end of the week at the earliest. He may not be ready to throw until next week. Gibran Hamdan would backup Losman if Edwards can't. Injury Page.
Losman Sees Opportunity: J.P. Losman spoke to the media about starting on Sunday, he called it a great opportunity for himself and everyone on the team to get to .500. The team is very excited about the opportunity and he sees the opportunity for himself personally. He is focused at the task at hand and ready to go. He is more confident than ever and will play with a chip on his shoulder. He knows the situation changes and a lot can happen the rest of the year, he is just going to play it out and sees what happens. He feels more comfortable and relaxed now. He is prepared to handle any situation that goes his way. He knows he needs to constantly focus on the prize and what he will do to help the team win the game and let all the other stuff take care of itself.
Denney, Leonhard Practice: The Bills appear to be healthier this week as both Jim Leonhard and Ryan Denney practiced fully. George Wilson did remain with the first unit at free safety though. Ashton Youboty was limited and Trent Edwards and Leon Joe did not practice. Injury Page.
Bengals Will Be Tough: The Bills get set to face the underachieving Bengals at Ralph Wilson Stadium this weekend. Just because the Bengals are 2-5 and the Bills are hot with two straight wins doesn't mean this game is a pushover. The Bengals are a very dangerous team on offense and this game may turn into a shootout. Game Preview.

Losman Gets The Nod: Dick Jauron continued with his habit of announcing on Tuesday who he will start at quarterback for the coming game instead of waiting until Wednesday like he said he would. Jauron announced that J.P. Losman will get the nod against the Bengals because Trent Edwards is still bothered by his sprained wrist and will likely not practice until later in the week if at all. Jauron released a two line statement and will likely elaborate further during his media day press conference tomorrow. It is likely that this is the same scenario as it was before the Ravens game when Edwards was announced as the starter because Losman was still hurt.
