JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Jaguars placekicker Josh Scobee injured his right leg during pregame warmups Sunday.

Scobee did kick an extra point after Jacksonville's touchdown in the first quarter and kicked a field goal in the second quarter.

But his leg was clearly bothering him after he slipped on the grass about an hour before kickoff. Scobee, who made an NFL-best 14 field goals from 40 to 49 yards last season, slammed his helmet to the ground and walked into the locker room.

The Jaguars had rookie punter Adam Podlesh, a fourth-round draft pick from Maryland, practicing field goals and kickoffs a few minutes later.

Scobee returned to the field just before the opening kickoff and had his upper right leg heavily wrapped. Podlesh then kicked off.

Scobee, a fifth-round pick in 2004, has made 78.5 percent of his field goal attempts (73 of 93) in three seasons. He also has made 100 of 101 extra points.
