The Jacksonville Jaguars will be without their starting QB this Sunday when the play the Chiefs.

QB David Garrard who suffered a concussion Monday playing against the Titans will not make the trip to Kansas City. His backup, Trent Edwards, who is so bad he was cut by the Buffalo Bills earlier this season, is questionable with a sprained thumb on his throwing hand. It is being reported that Edwards will be a game time decision.

While it is good news for the Chiefs that they won’t have to face Garrard, it is bad news that they won’t know which QB they will be facing until they step on the field.

If the Chiefs were smart they likely prepared for Edwards some this week. It was always more likely that Edwards would be able to go over Garrard so I doubt the Chiefs spent much time on the Jags starting QB.

If Edwards can’t go, the Jaguars will used QB Todd Bauman who, while he knows the team’s system, hasn’t thrown a pass in a regular season game since 2005. Backing up Bouman would be QB Patrick Ramsey who also hasn’t thrown a regular season pass since 2005.

Both Bouman and Ramsey wee signed by the Jaguars this week.
