TORONTO (AP) -J.P. Losman made his first start in more than a year in place of injured Trent Edwards on Sunday when the Bills hosted the Dolphins in kicking off their first of five annual regular-season games at Toronto.
Edwards, listed as the Bills' third quarterback, has been nursing a groin injury that sidelined him after the first half of a 10-3 loss to San Francisco last weekend. Losman took over and went 11-of-17 for 93 yards in his third appearance this season.
The second of Buffalo's two 2004 first-round draft picks, Losman hasn't started since a 36-17 loss at Jacksonville on Nov. 25, 2007, after which he lost the No. 1 job for the second time last season to Edwards.
in 2005.
The Bills (6-6) were in desperate need of a win to keep alive their slim playoff hopes in facing AFC East rival Miami (7-5).
For Miami, left guard Andy Alleman made his first career start in place of Justin Smiley, who was place on injured reserve after breaking his ankle in a 16-12 loss at St. Louis last week.
