Garrard Hurts Back During Thursday Night Practice

During Thursday night’s camp practice, Jaguars quarterback David Garrard suffered a back injury and was taken off the field.

Afterword, coach Jack Del Rio told Tania Ganguli of the Florida Times-Union, “David’s back got a little tight, so we’re just icing him down. He’ll get treatment and all that. But he should be fine, so nothing major there. He came to me after the first team period, then to Mike Ryan, and said it was getting tight. It’s not the time to push through that kind of thing, so just let it settle down.”

Del Rio indicated he did not think Garrard would need X-rays, but said that decision was up to Ryan, the team’s head trainer. Del Rio also said he would be surprised if Garrard didn’t play in Saturday night’s scrimmage.
