Garrard could miss month

Quarterback David Garrard could miss as much as a month of the season with what coach Jack Del Rio classified as a high-ankle sprain. Quinn Gray will be Garrard's replacement in Tampa on Sunday and the Jaguars were to work out three veteran quarterbacks this afternoon in an attempt to fortify the position.

"David will be out this week and it looks like, at the minimum, he'll be out a couple of weeks and potentially it could be as much as a month," Del Rio told reporters at his Wednesday press conference.

"We will elevate Quinn. We'll rally around Quinn and do our best as a football team to compete," Del Rio added.

Del Rio also said the team will "either elevate (rookie) Lester Ricard (from the practice squad) or sign another player to be active."

Del Rio would not divulge what the team is considering in the way of making room on their roster for a new quarterback. The team would have to either release a player or move him to the injured reserve to make room for a quarterback.

Jaguars.com will update this story with more information later this afternoon.
