Default "Byron might be done for year"

LEFTWICH DONE FOR THE YEAR?



A league source says Jacksonville quarterback Byron Leftwich could be done for the year after suffering an injury in Sunday's loss to the Texans.



The source didn't specify the injury, but another league insider tells us that Leftwich was limping on Monday.



The Tuesday edition of the Florida Times-Union reports that Leftwich suffered a left leg injury on Sunday shortly before halftime, and that he went back into the game on his own after missing only a couple of plays.



"I was scared in the beginning, but it was something I got over quickly,'' Leftwich said. "I'll be healthy by the next game."



The Jaguars are off this weekend. They next play the Lions, on November 14.



If the 5-3 Jags lose Leftwich, the starter will be David Garrard, a player whom some in the organization think has greater potential than Leftwich, since the second-year pro from Marshall has limited mobility. Garrard is scheduled to become a restricted free agent after the season.



In a prior edition of this here story, we said that Garrard will be an unrestricted free agent after the season. As Bart Hubbuch of the Florida Times-Union told us in a Tuesday morning e-mail, however, Garrard has one more year before he can walk. With that said, Hubbuch anticipates that the Jags will trade Garrard after the 2004 season.



But we don't see eye-to-eye on everything with Bart. He tells us that the story that Leftwich is hurt is "WAY off the mark." We'll stand by our report for now, but we'll keep digging for more info.

From www.profootballtalk.com

I hate to see a team lose a starter, even a div foe but this might help us out come dec 26th in Jacksonville.

Isn't that website a bunch of Jacksonville homers? Maybe the teal coloring makes me suspicious, but anyway rumors can go either way.

Everyone at the Jags MB thinks that article is a bunch of BS. They think if Byron was really done for the season, Del Rio and the public would have known by now.

They are holding their breath now. There are reports that Byron is visiting some sort of ACL expert today. They are crossing their fingers and holding their breaths right now at the Jags MB. Some are thinking the news might be REALLY bad. Just found this.

Leftwich might miss season with knee injury

Quarterback in Alabama to have leg examined

By BART HUBBUCH, The Times-Union


Jaguars quarterback Byron Leftwich might miss the rest of the season after injuring his left knee in last Sunday's 20-6 loss to the Houston Texans.
-- ADVERTISEMENT --

Leftwich is in Birmingham, Ala., today to have his injured leg examined by sports orthopedist James Andrews, and the Jaguars said they expect to update Leftwich's condition today or Wednesday.

If Leftwich is unable to finish the season, backup David Garrard would take over. The Jaguars (5-3) have a bye this week before returning to play host to the Detroit Lions on Sunday, Nov. 14.

Leftwich was dispatched to see Andrews by his agent, Tom Condon, after developing pain late Monday afternoon.

Leftwich was hurt just before halftime on a high-low tackle by Texans linebacker Kailee Wong and defensive lineman Gary Walker, a former Jaguar. Leftwich missed two plays before putting himself back in the game -- without input from the coaching staff, according to coach Jack Del Rio -- and finished the contest.

Leftwich said immediately after the game that he would be fine, but experienced problems the next day.

Leftwich has a history of leg injuries dating to his college career at Marshall

The doctor he is going to is an expert in ACL repair/sports medicine.

Its not that. We have a lot of fans in Jacksonville who dont like Leftwich. They come up with this stuff all the time to make it seem like Garrard is going to play. Wishful thinking on their part and a direct result of their ignorance of football. Why they would not want Leftwich starting is beyond me.

If this is not what it is about, then I guess it is true. However I agree someone would have broken that story by now.

Default Ack....

Well, looks like the Leftwich thing may be true. I think we did lose him for the year. We will still play as hard as we can, but this may mean you guys gotta go out there and keep this division outta the hands of the Colts or Titans. We Jag's fans will still pull for our team, but we would rather see you ugys get it than the Dolts or Tacks. Good luck on Sunday!

Wow!...if true.

I find it interesting to note that we really do not wish any ill will towards opposing players...but during the game, we compare football to war and we make thunder when our defender gets a good blindside smack on the enemy QB, even taking him out of the game. Then we run home to watch ESPN, and they have the "Jacked Up!" segment showing extremely violent hits from the weekend's games.

It reminds me of the George Carlin bit (about Football vs. Baseball):

"In football, during the game in the stands, you can be sure that at least twenty-seven times you're capable of taking the life of a fellow human being."

We put the fan in fanatic!

We know the feeling, and it isn't a good one. Too bad he'll out for the Dec 26th game, I like the Carr-Leftwich rivalry thats developing.

Good luck the rest of the season, hopefully Garrard can keep things together (but still finish behind the Texans)
