Byrd’s groin is a concern

Standard

Things have been pretty rough on the injury front for the Buffalo Bills with a lot of players getting injured.

However, with Bills free safety Jarius Byrd groin is a concern.

According to the Associated Press, via Pro Football Talk, Byrd is out indefinitely after undergoing surgery on his groin.

Apparently it is the same injury that caused him to miss the end of the 2009 season.

The only way that Byrd is going to prevent from this happening again is to strengthen the muscle with specific exercises or include a core workout

If there is one positive is that it has happened in the preseasona and not the regular season where he would probably miss a a month.

Also, the injury is not season ending, which was the main problem for the Bills last year.

In the end, what people need to worry about is the play of quarterback Trent Edwards.

The pressure is building for Edwards

Standard

The Buffalo Bills first string offense has gone 20 straight preseason drives and not score a single touchdown.

With Bills quarterback Trent Edwards being the starter for all of them the pressure is building for him.

Edwards even has acknowledge that the first team offense needs to get into the endzone if they are going to do well this season.

The fact of the matter is that if Edwards cannot lead the starters into the endzone by the end of the preseason he won’t be the starter for the regular season opener.

That would mean Edwards would have gone 40 straight drives without a touchdown and if that happens the Bills offense would be just as bad as last year behind Edwards.

In the end, with all five starters expected to play Thursday Edwards is out of excuses.
