Julian Edelman is continuing to play coy as to whether he will suit up as a receiver or a quarterback on Sunday.
In a Wednesday conference call with Buffalo media, the New England Patriots' wide receiver was asked whether he has spent time this week practicing at quarterback.
“It’s a team policy that we’re not allowed to talk about where we’ve been practicing, but I can tell you that what we have been doing has been tough because of the opponent, the Buffalo Bills and coach [Rex] Ryan, and what he does, he does so much,” Edelman said. “It’s one of those things where we have to really tap in in the classroom and bring it to the grass in practice and translate that into regular drills, team drills, and all those types of things because we know it’s going to be against a tough opponent this week.”
Buffalo Bills head coach Rex Ryan also attempted to find out the answer on Wednesday. Ryan went undercover as a reporter during Edelman's conference call with media members.
"This is Walt Patulski, from The Buffalo News. Are you playing quarterback this week?" Ryan asked Edelman.
Edelman responded in typical secretive Patriot fashion.
“I’m going to do whatever the coaches ask me to do. If they ask me to go out and give a glass of water to someone on the sideline, I’m going to do that with a smile on my face if it helps our team win. You can ask coach [Bill Belichick] that one.”
Jimmy Garoppolo sprained his throwing shoulder in a Week 2 win over the Miami Dolphins and was unavailable for the team's Thursday night game in Week 3. Jacoby Brissett started that contest against the Houston Texans, but suffered a thumb injury during the game.
If either of those two quarterbacks can not go, it will be up to Edelman to run the team's offense against the Bills.
