Edwards hoping to be ready

It's now been over two weeks since Trent Edwards sustained a concussion in Buffalo's Week 6 overtime win over the Jets at the Meadowlands. And though the headaches are gone, there are still measures of the medical staff's protocol that must be taken.

"There are some other symptoms that we need to look at and need to evaluate with the medical staff," said Edwards after the team's first bye week practice Tuesday. "And they've done a great job with me and I'm being honest with them and they're being honest with me and that's all I can ask for."

Though he's eager to be deemed ready to go Edwards is being smart about his recovery.

"Did a little bit more (Tuesday) in practice and I feel I'm getting better each day, getting stronger and just pretty happy with my progress right now," he said.

With respect to his conditioning regimen off the field Edwards feels he's closer to peak exertion level.

"I'm still getting better each day," Edwards said. "I'm still kind of getting stronger each day but as far as my weight lifting and conditioning program I'm still doing a little more each day so it's honestly a day by day basis right now."

When asked if he'll play next week at Tennessee the Bills quarterback left it in the hands of the medical staff.

"I hope so," he said. "Honestly that's not up to me right now. I'm just focusing on (each) day and practice (Wednesday) and then get away for a little bit. So hopefully I'll continue to heal and continue to get better."
