Sometimes, the best therapy for a bad back is a kick in the ass.

After watching rookie quarterback Blaine Gabbert turn in a decent (but not stellar) performance in the Jaguars’ preseason opener, starter David Garrard returned to practice Saturday morning, per John Oesher of Jaguars.com.  Garrard also will practice on Saturday night.  (Two-a-days, by the way, are still permitted, as long as one of them is a walk-through.)

Garrard injured his back during practice on August 4.  He had not practiced since then.
