A change appears to be coming for the Buffalo Bills at quarterback.
Jason La Canfora of NFL Network reports that the Bills are expected to start Ryan Fitzpatrick at quarterback for Sunday’s game at Jacksonville.
Fitzpatrick briefly played in place of starter Trent Edwards late in Sunday’s game against the Tennessee Titans, throwing an interception that was returned for a touchdown for the final score of a 41-17 loss.
Fitzpatrick has started two games for the Bills this season and come in off the bench in two others. He’s completed 38 of 77 passes for 362 yards, with two touchdowns and four interceptions.
Fitzpatrick’s previous experience includes starting 12 games with the Bengals last year and three games with the Rams in 2005.
Bills coach Dick Jauron said on Monday that any announcement about a quarterback switch would be made on Wednesday. He acknowledged that benching Edwards was possible, saying, “There’s a possibility of changes.”
