Jaguars QB David Garrard’s Hamstring a Major Concern for Team Entering Sunday

Entering their biggest game of the season with the AFC South basically on the line, the Jaguars may have to play it without starting quarterback David Garrard.

The QB is suffering from a hamstring injury, and it now looks like it might be worse than many at first believed.

The Jags Friday re-signed veteran Todd Bouman, the same day they listed Garrard as questionable for Sunday’s critical game at the Colts. Garrard tweaked his hamstring in practice Thursday and was limited in practice Friday.

He was getting treatment Friday and unavailable for comment during the team’s open locker room session. Former Bills quarterback Trent Edwards is Garrard’s backup.

The Jaguars (8-5) placed cornerback Terrence Wheatley (hamstring) on injured reserve to make room for Bouman, who served a pair of two-week stints with the team earlier this season.

Bouman started at Kansas City on October 24th and completed 18 of 34 passes for 222 yards, with two touchdowns and two interceptions.
