Jags' David Garrard still recovering
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback David Garrard is resting at home for the second consecutive day, increasing the chances that Trent Edwards or Todd Bouman will start at Kansas City.
Garrard sustained a concussion in Monday night's 30-3 loss to Tennessee and hasn't been back to the facility since. Coach Jack Del Rio says Garrard will be evaluated late this week and he's preparing to play without the ninth-year veteran.
The team will release Garrard's game status Friday, but having missed most of team meetings and practices, it's unlikely he will return against the Chiefs.
Edwards also could be out. He sprained his right thumb against the Titans and sat out practice Wednesday. If he can't play, Bouman would make his first start since 2005.
Edwards wore a splint on his sprained right thumb and rode a stationary bike at practice on Wednesday, the Florida Times-Union reported.
"I don't know honestly [if he can play]," Edwards said Wednesday, according to the report. "It's a day-to-day situation right now. I just have to do as much as I can in the training room to get back to where it needs to be. Hopefully, I'll be where I need to be on Sunday."
Bouman ran the Jaguars' offense in practice on Wednesday, while Patrick Ramsey, who was signed Tuesday, ran the scout team, according to the report.
"I have no idea [what's going to happen]. I'm not preparing any different than I have the last how many years," Bouman said Wednesday, according to the report. "You prepare every week like you're going to play. You've got to be ready to go. You never know when the time is going to come, so you just wait and see what happens."
