Leftwich done for the year?

Moderator: Football Moderators

In case anyone's wondering, the reason this injury happened is because I started Leftwich in week 8.

It sounds far fetched, but bear with me. In the 4 games prior to that in which I started him, he'd been averaging 318 yards passing and had scored 6TDs (2 on the ground). Last week, he had 227 yards, 0 TD, 2 INT. A coincidence? I think not!

I'm now going to be a good citizen and warn all Harrington owners that I've dropped the injured Leftwich and picked up Harrington. Trust me, Joey is ready to get hit by a bus.

Leftwich has a torn ligament in his left knee and will be out four to six weeks, ESPNews reports.

Damn, that sucks. I like Lefty the Jags - I don't think they'll go far w/o him. :-°

Maybe not?


Jags deny Leftwich
has torn knee ligament
One report says quarterback
will be sidelined 4-6 weeks
Jaguars quarterback Byron Leftwich has completed 177 of 273 passes for 1,891 yards, nine touchdowns and seven interceptions this season.
Updated: 3:57 p.m. ET Nov. 2, 2004JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Byron Leftwich once played a college football game with a fractured shin. So will a sprained left knee put the Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback on the sidelines?


ESPN is reporting that Leftwich will be out four to six weeks with torn ligaments in his left knee.

But the Jaguars announced Tuesday that Leftwich merely has a knee sprain and will rest through the week with the team enjoying a bye. He will then be re-evaluated on Monday before his status is updated.

Leftwich was hit on his left knee late in the first half of last Sunday’s 20-6 loss at Houston. He left for two plays before returning to complete the game, finished 25-of-40 for 227 yards with two interceptions.

Leftwich continued to experience soreness in the knee on Monday and underwent an MRI. On Tuesday, the Jaguars scheduled for him to meet in Alabama with Dr. James Andrews, who diagnosed the injury as a knee sprain.

The second quarterback selected in the 2003 draft, Leftwich has become known for his late-game heroics, leading the first-place Jaguars (5-3) to four game-winning drives in the final minute this season.

David Garrard, who briefly replaced Leftwich last Sunday, is the backup quarterback. Quinn Gray is the only other quarterback on the roster.

Leftwich has completed nearly 65 percent of his passes for 1,891 yards and nine touchdowns with seven interceptions this season.

One of the most prolific passers in college football history, Leftwich set Mid-American Conference career records for passing yards with 11,903. He also set an incredible standard for toughness, missing just one play after fracturing his left shin in a 2002 game against Akron. During the fourth quarter, he limped around on one leg and had to be carried downfield by his linemen after several long gains.

Leftwich is a warrior, but I'm going to trust the ESPN report. I dropped him for Garrard just now. Hopefully Tommy Brady can keep me the rest of the way.

i went to school while david was playing at ECU, watched him every college game, and he is better than leftwich. he likes to go deep and he can also run the hell out of the ball. look for a lot of rushes when he gets in trouble. he is as big as a lot of line backers.........

I have to go with "no" on that one. Everyone seems better in person... you get caught up in the energy of the game while you're there.

I should know... I like Timmy Chang.
