ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) _ The Bills have made a decision on their starting quarterback.

Rookie Trent Edwards is expected to make his third consecutive start when Buffalo hosts Baltimore on Sunday. The decision is expected to be formally announced by the team today.

The move means Edwards has an opportunity to secure the starting ahead of J.P. Losman, who missed the last two games with a sprained knee.

While Losman sidelined, Edwards stepped in and led the Bills to a win over the Jets and a near-upset against the Cowboys.

Meanwhile, a prominent figure from the team's Super Bowl years is being honored tonight in Buffalo.

Former Bills general manager Bill Polian is being inducted into the Buffalo Sports Hall of Fame. Polian is the current president of the defending Super Bowl-champion Indianapolis Colts.

He guided the Bills from 1985 until 1992, and was largely responsible for constructing the Buffalo teams that won four consecutive AFC titles in the early 90s.
