If All Goes Well Garrard Could Be Back Sunday

As the Jags wrap up a three-game road swing in Tennessee on Sunday, the team may have their starting QB back in David Garrard, at least in a limited role.  Garrard, who suffered a high ankle sprain in the Monday night game against the Colts on October 22nd, took part in some of Wednesday’s practice in Jacksonville.  He ran without pain last week, and the talk right now is that he COULD be back Sunday, but the team needs to see how the rest of the week goes.

“It’s going to be obvious if I can do it,” Garrard said before practice Wednesday. “If I can’t, then it’ll be obvious as well. I don’t want to be hobbling. I don’t feel like I’ll be able to play my game if I’m hobbling around or gimping around. I’ve never played like that.”  Coach Jack Del Rio is saying it’ll be a game-time decision for Garrard, but the QB says that his movement in practice over the next 48 hours will tell him if he is going to be able to give it a go or not.  “I have to be smart. There’s a lot of games left. I want to make sure the ankle’s right before I come back. I don’t want to get out there and damage it more and then I’m out for the rest of the season.”
