From ProFootballTalk.com, so take it with a grain of salt. Just wondering if someone has heard anything else about this.LINKCONGRATS TO MrNiceGuy for being all over a scoop here, and props to PFT for getting something right on the money; we certainly bash them for all the times they report something inaccurate.
Anyway, here's a link from ESPN http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=1914640 which verifies that Leftwich is out 4-6 weeks.
LEFTWICH DONE FOR THE YEAR?
A league source says Jacksonville quarterback Byron Leftwich could be done for the year after suffering an injury in Sunday's loss to the Texans.
The source didn't specify the injury, but another league insider tells us that Leftwich was limping on Monday.
If the 4-3 Jags lose Leftwich, the starter will be David Garrard, a player whom some in the organization think has greater potential than Leftwich, since the second-year pro from Marshall has limited mobility. Garrard is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent after the season, so this could be his Scott Mitchell/Rob Johnson chance to parlay a couple of months of games into a long-term contract elsewhere.
