    The Jacksonville Jaguars could have two quarterbacks signed off the street and suited up Sunday.

    With starter David Garrard and backup Trent Edwards both injured, the Jaguars on Tuesday re-signed veteran Todd Bouman. To make roster room, the team released safety Gerald Alexander.

    The Jaguars also are planning to look at free-agent quarterback Patrick Ramsey, whom the New Orleans Saints released in final roster cuts this offseason.

    Garrard left Monday night's 30-3 loss to the Tennessee Titans with a concussion in the second quarter, and Edwards injured his right thumb while playing the rest of the game. Jaguars coach Jack Del Rio said on his weekly radio show Tuesday night that "there's a strong possibility we won't have either guy" during practice Wednesday.

    Del Rio added there was a chance that Garrard and Edwards could be back for Sunday's road game against the Kansas City Chiefs. But Garrard needs to pass the NFL's strict post-concussion guidelines, and a league source told NFL Network insider Jason La Canfora that the quarterback hasn't even been cleared to practice. Given the short week, it will be difficult, if not impossible, for Garrard to return.

    Edwards is hurting and also still learning the playbook after being picked up three weeks ago, so the Jaguars (3-3) are preparing for the worst. That would be Bouman starting and Ramsey possibly serving as his backup.

    The Jaguars signed Bouman last month after backup Luke McCown sustained a season-ending knee injury. Bouman spent two weeks on the active roster before he was released Oct. 5.

    Bouman has played in 42 games with six starts for the Saints and Minnesota Vikings in his NFL career, which began in 1997. He spent four weeks on Jacksonville's roster in 2007 and also was with the team during training camp in 2008 and 2009.

    Bouman signed with the Baltimore Ravens before the 2008 opener and spent the entire season with them. He was their No. 3 quarterback for the final 10 weeks, including the playoffs.

    Garrard has been inconsistent all season. He threw four interceptions in a Sept. 19 loss at San Diego and was benched. He was sacked seven times the next week in a home loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, prompting the Jaguars to claim Edwards off waivers from the Buffalo Bills.

    Garrard bounced back in wins over the Indianapolis Colts and the Bills, but he struggled again against the Titans. Garrard was 7-of-12 passing for 49 yards with an interception. He also was plagued by two dropped passes.

    Edwards was 14-of-24 passing for 140 yards with two interceptions. He also was sacked twice.

    Against the Texans... the worse your QB is, the better it is for you. We like to make scrubs look like all-pros.

    I know, but this team is done as of week 6, no QB's and no defense. Enjoy the payback.

    Mootini - I was really pulling hard for y'all on Monday night...... that was ugly to watch, though.

    Hate it for y'all. Anytime you have to go to a Bouman / Ramsey combo at QB you're pretty much done.

    But hey, on the bright side, you probably won't expect any more wins so anything better than 3-13 will be a big bonus!

    Here's the update:



    Bouman might have to be ‘The Man’
    Del Rio hopes Garrard can return
    Wednesday, October 20, 2010 By Vic Ketchman, jaguars.com senior editor Print Email Comments

    As Trent Edwards talked to reporters about the large wrap on his right hand and Patrick Ramsey walked into the Jaguars locker room for the first time, David Garrard was at home resting and Todd Bouman, who might be the Jaguars’ starting quarterback on Sunday, was down the hall signing a contract, again.




    That was the state of the Jaguars’ injury-ravaged quarterback position as of Wednesday at noon, as the Jaguars began preparation for Sunday’s game in Kansas City.




    “It’s a pretty bad sprain,” Edwards said of his right thumb. “We’ll reevaluate it on Friday and see where I stand.”




    Edwards sustained the injury, he said, on his “fourth or fifth play” in Monday night’s game against the Tennessee Titans. Edwards entered the game late in the first half, after Garrard had sustained a concussion. Garrard was not at the Jaguars’ facility on Wednesday.




    “I hit it on a helmet, on the top of a Titans defensive lineman’s helmet,” Edwards said.




    Does he expect to be able to play on Sunday?




    “It’s too early to tell. The head coach will be the deciding factor,” Edwards said.




    Head Coach Jack Del Rio characterized his team’s quarterback situation as follows: “We remain hopeful to get (Garrard) cleared to play this weekend. Edwards has his thumb wrapped. He won’t take snaps today; he won’t throw the ball today. Todd’s back. Todd knows our offense well. We’ll get Patrick up to speed as quickly as possible.”




    Garrard was at home resting on Wednesday. Del Rio said Garrard will undergo a medical examination “later in the week” that will determine whether or not he can return to action on Sunday.




    “We have to prepare as though we may not” get him back, Del Rio said of Garrard.




    Should that be the case, indications are Bouman would be the likely replacement.




    “Having Todd here, it opens up the playbook,” Del Rio said.




    Bouman has been with the Jaguars off and on the past few years and is familiar with the team’s offense. He was signed for the Eagles game three weeks ago, after Luke McCown was lost for the season to a knee injury, then released after Edwards had been claimed off waivers.




    Ramsey is all new to the Jaguars. He spent the summer with the Saints until being released. At the time, he was recovering from a hamstring injury.




    “You grind; spend a tremendous amount of time and soak in as much as you can,” Ramsey said. “I know Todd’s been in the offense. You guys are catching me as I just signed.”




    Del Rio is counting on his defense to pick up the slack. He referred to a similar situation the Steelers found themselves in during the first four games of the season, when Ben Roethlisberger was serving a suspension and injury forced the Steelers to play three games with fourth-string quarterback Charlie Batch.




    “The Steelers played great defense and they rolled through the first month of the season, despite not having their starting quarterback,” Del Rio said.




    Any chance the Jaguars have of making improvement on defense would seem to hinge on their young safeties, Don Carey and Courtney Greene. It appears a personnel decision has been made to go with them at the troubled positions in what remains of the season.




    “We elected to go with the young guys that have athleticism. We’re going to go ahead, develop young guys and let them play. They are improving each and every week. We’re going to let them grow,” Del Rio said.




    Wednesday’s press conference provided answers to questions about Monday’s loss to the Titans.






    Was Del Rio upset by Titans coach Jeff Fisher’s play-calling in the final minutes of the game?





    “I’m not sure why that’s even a story. We have to get a stop there,” said Del Rio, who added that he felt strongly that Fisher would’ve started taking a knee had Chris Johnson not ripped off a touchdown run.






    What about running so much time off the clock in the Jaguars’ eight-minute, fourth-quarter drive?





    “I wasn’t real wild about the consecutive runs there. We spent too much time, in my opinion, but we got caught short in what Trent (Edwards) was able to do,” Del Rio said, referring to Edwards’ limited command of the playbook. “I thought we were too deliberate. I was frustrated by it and Dirk (Koetter) knows it,” Del Rio added of his offensive coordinator.






    Should Garrard have picked up the blitz on the play that resulted in his injury?





    “That was a missed assignment and then we had a drop. In that game, we had several opportunities to catch the ball and ignite and we did not catch the ball,” Del Rio said.




    The story of this week will be the player who’ll be throwing the ball on Sunday.

    Now don't you wish your team had drafted Tebow in the 1st? I'm really disappointed they didn't, I thought that would have made them a good team going forward. Especially since the offense is geared around a mobile QB in Garrard, Tebow wouldn't be a huge change.

    I don't think Jax can out-suck the Bills. You already have more wins than they will probably get all season. You might even have more than Carolina and SF will.

    Thanks for letting me know who I'm taking in my suicide pool this week. I was out of options as I already used the Ravens and Saints.

    Naw, Tebow is not ready for the NFL. that's why he's thrid string on Broncos. Tebow broke ribs in the 1st preseason game! I'm disappointed the Jags have not drafted a QB in over 8 years!!!!

    All I got to say, when the Texans play the Jags...look for Jags CB # 31 Davey Jones...he the worst I have ever seen! Seriously.... Davey Jones "Locker" I'm thinking of getting his jersey, because he is that bad!

    I expect no more....I can't believe Simple Jack has a job....his era is over along w/Garrard. This should have happened last year, but Weaver paid them big bucks after the 2007, one playoff win. Cheap and dumb = current state of affairs.
