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.
