The Jaguars may be short two quarterbacks this week.
The team signed Todd Bouman on Tuesday following David Garrard’s concussion on Monday Night Football. It turns out backup Trent Edwards was hurt during the game as well.
Jaguars coach Jack Del Rio revealed Edwards isn’t guaranteed to be ready for practice this week.
“I hate to be breaking things right now but there’s a chance, you know, [Edward’s] got a little bit of a thumb issue that could be problematic,” Del Rio said Tuesday during an appearance on SIRIUS radio via Paul Kuharsky’s AFC South blog.
“So Todd Bouman will be back and potentially another quarterback in the mix as well.
We’re just a little banged up right now at that position. David’s
obviously not going to be working tomorrow and there’s a question mark
whether Trent will be able to go tomorrow.”
It’s uncertain when Edwards suffered the injury. He was still throwing passes after Del Rio’s now infamous late timeouts.
