Backup running back Edwards benched for second straight game

For the second straight week, backup Barrington Edwards is out of the lineup for unspecified team disciplinary reasons, benched from practice and the game by coach John Bunting. Edwards' absence means McGill should get a lot of carries again -- and also some bruises. Justin Warren is listed as McGill's backup, and fullback Bobby Rome might move to tailback for some snaps.
