Edwards unlikely to play Sunday

For a second straight day Bills quarterback Trent Edwards was a spectator at practice as his groin injury continues to keep him from taking part in this week's preparation for the Jets.

"It's better, but he did not participate at all," said head coach Dick Jauron after practice.

During individual position drills Edwards did do some light tossing, but it was off on the side.

"He threw the ball on the field a little bit," said Jauron. "So he's a little bit better."

But not better enough to play on Sunday it appears. Jauron stressed that young quarterbacks need as much time on the practice field in a game week as possible.

"You want your starting quarterback out there getting the reps, particularly if he's not a veteran player," Jauron said. "Sometimes, if a guy has played in the league a long time, they maybe can handle just the Friday practice maybe and go into the game, but young guys, they need them all."

With Edwards missing both Wednesday and Thursday practice it's unlikely that he'll play Sunday at the Meadowlands

Greer slight chance to return
Jabari Greer practiced for a second straight day on Thursday, but was limited.

"He worked really hard Wednesday and there was a little soreness from it which was expected," said Jauron. "We'll see how he is (Friday). Wednesday was his first practice and he pushed it really well I thought. He didn't push it quite as hard (Thursday). I would say he has an outside chance (to play)."

Greer has missed the last three games with a knee injury.
