Rex Ryan joined the end of Julian Edelman's conference call with reporters on Wednesday and asked the receiver if he'll play quarterback this weekend.

The Buffalo Bills are set to take on the New England Patriots, who will be without Tom Brady for one more week and could be without Jimmy Garoppolo and Jacoby Brissett due to injury.

"Julian, this is, uh, Walt Patulski from The Buffalo News," Ryan said. "Are you playing quarterback this week?"

"Huh?" Edelman responded.

"Are you playing quarterback this week?" Ryan repeated.

"I'm gonna do whatever the coaches ask me to do," Edelman said, "so if they ask me to go out and get a glass a water to someone on the sideline, I'm gonna do that with a smile on my face if it helps our team win. So you can ask Coach that one."

"All right, Julian, I will, buddy," Rex said.

The Patriots have not indicated who will start Sunday's game at quarterback.
