Leftwich's thumb hurts
Quarterback confirms pain exists in his passing hand, but plans to play.
By BART HUBBUCH
The Times-Union



Jaguars quarterback Byron Leftwich confirmed Monday that he is experiencing continued pain in the thumb of his passing hand.
Leftwich, though, insisted he would not let the pain in his right thumb limit him when the Jaguars open the regular season Sunday at the Buffalo Bills.

Asked Monday if his thumb was feeling better, Leftwich said: "It will be.''

Leftwich injured his thumb when he hit it on a defender's helmet in the Jaguars' preseason victory over Tampa Bay two weeks ago.



The pain appeared to affect Leftwich's throws in the final two exhibition games, and he admitted after last Thursday's preseason finale at New England that the injury to his hand was a factor.

With Leftwich in the game, the starting offense produced no touchdowns in 18 preseason series, including no points in three possessions against New England's backups. Leftwich finished the exhibition schedule with a 57.6 rating.

Leftwich also said he has been bothered by a cold in recent days but expressed confidence going into his first NFL regular-season opener as a starter.

Leftwich also shrugged off calls by fans to bench him in favor of David Garrard or Quinn Gray after he struggled in the preseason.

"Hopefully, the fans will listen when I tell them there's no need to worry,'' Leftwich said. "Evidently, they're not [happy, based on the uproar]. But there's nothing you can do about that. I can only worry about the things I can control.

"I'm a fan of the game, too, so I understand how the fans think.''

Thanks for the link ;-D ...It's not really the thumb, but the lack of scores that should be the concern.

Hey PF...The reference was related more to the "Thumb" issue than style of play. I'm just not that high on him to begin with...Same crew as last year, Taylor and Smith a little older; Reggie Williams a welcome addition but 1st year...Still, perhaps in his second year he may mature. ;-D
