Trent Edwards is ready to play

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Trent Edwards is now the team's No.2 quarterback.

Howard Smith-US PRESSWIRE

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.

Edwards last played in a meaningful game almost two years ago as a member of the Jacksonville Jaguars. The quarterback completed 12 of his 25 passes and threw a touchdown to tight end Marcedes Lewis.

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.
