No Battle of Backups?
Garrard passed a battery of tests that he flunked last Friday and he was held out of the Kansas City game.
Todd Bouman filled in for him in just his seventh start at age 38 and he threw two touchdowns and two interceptions while putting 20 points on the board, but the hapless Jaguars' defense gave up 42.
Bouman suffered a finger injury in that game and his status is uncertain but he wouldn't have played anyway because Garrard is healthy.
Garrard has had an up and down season. He played well in the team's three victories but struggled in the losses to San Diego and Philadelphia. He got off to a slow start against the Titans before being hurt.
He has an 84.7 passer rating with nine touchdown passes and seven interceptions.
With Tony Romo hurt, though, the Jaguars should have the edge at this position.
Jon Kitna is expected to start for the Cowboys in Romo's place.
The Jaguars also made one roster move Tuesday, putting offensive tackle Eben Britton on the injured reserve list with a torn labrum and signing tackle Eric Pears to replace him. He spent four years with the Broncos and one with the Raiders before being waiver at the end of training camp.
He has played in 44 games with 30 starts.
