Coach Dick Jauron made the announcement on Tuesday in a two-paragraph statement issued by the team as the Bills (2-4) prepare to travel to play the New York Jets on Sunday.
``We are naming Trent Edwards as our starting quarterback,'' Jauron said, noting he had informed both Edwards and Losman of his decision.
The statement was a departure from what Jauron said last week, when he declined to name a full-time starter beyond giving Edwards one more start - against Baltimore on Sunday - because Losman had looked rusty since recovering from a sprained left knee.
Edwards delivered on the coach's faith, helping the Bills to a 19-14 victory. The win improved the third-round pick's record to 2-1 in three consecutive starts since Losman was hurt during the first series of Buffalo's 38-7 loss against New England in Week 3.
Jauron is expected to provide further details regarding his decision after the Bills return to practice Wednesday.
