BRUNELL OUT FOR REGULAR SEASON FINALE

Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Mark Brunell will miss this

Sunday's regular season finale against the Cincinnati Bengals due to

a sprained left knee he suffered yesterday against the Tennessee

Titans. A magnetic resonance imaging exam performed today

confirmed that Brunell suffered a sprain of the medial collateral

ligament in the knee. His status is week-to-week.

Brunell suffered the injury with just over three minutes remaining in

the second quarter of Sunday's game. He was replaced for the

remainder of the game by Jay Fiedler, who will make his first NFL

start this Sunday in place of Brunell. Fiedler, a four-year veteran,

has played in six games for the Jaguars this season. He has

completed 60 percent of his passes (33 of 55) for 339 yards with

one touchdown and two interceptions.

"I plan on being back in the playoffs," Brunell said. "Jay (Fiedler)

can rally the troops this week, and hopefully we'll get that bye in the

first round. After that, I hope to be ready to play. We'll just have to

wait and see."
