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  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.
