Howard Smith-US PRESSWIRE
Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Trent Edwards is now the team's No.2 quarterback.
Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Trent Edwards is ready to play Sunday against the Washington Redskins if he is called upon. CSN Philly columnist Reuben Frank wrote a column about Edwards on Thursday, now that Edwards is the No. 2 quarterback behind Nick Foles.
The Buffalo Bills drafted Edwards in the third-round in 2007, and he spent three years battling J.P. Losman for the starting quarterback position. Edwards went 14-18 as a starter, and completed 61 percent of his passes. The quarterback impressed the Eagles during the preseason, throwing for 489 yards, four touchdowns and zero interceptions.
Edwards has been inactive for seven games this season, and only suited up as the No. 3 quarterback for two games. He's now one step closer to returning to the field.
