Dan Hicken and Tony Boselli of 1010XL on Sports Final Radio earlier today hinted at and speculated the Jacksonville Jaguars would be bringing back quarterback Todd Bouman. With the injury to Jaguars quarterback David Garrard (back) still lingering, the Jaguars needed to bring in a third quarterback, just in case for Thursday night's game against the New England Patriots. The speculation was later confirmed at practice today by various reporters on the scene.
"We made a call back to the tractor," Del Rio told reporters.
David Garrard will travel with the team, but it is unlikely he will play at all. The plan is to split the reps between Blaine Gabbert and Luke McCown, with Gabbert getting the start.
Also, Jack Del Rio told reporters that tight end Marcedes Lewis will travel with the team, but he is considering sitting him out for the game. Lewis came to practice last week and signed his new deal late in the week. It makes sense with him only having a few days of actual practice. Maurice Jones-Drew and Aaron Kampman on the other hand will not travel with the team.
