Jaguars preparing to go with Edwards or Bouman at QB

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Jaguars quarterback David Garrard rested at home for the second consecutive day, increasing the chances that Trent Edwards or Todd Bouman will start Sunday at Kansas City.

Garrard sustained a concussion in Monday night's 30-3 loss to the Tennessee Titans and hasn't been back to the Jaguars' facility since. Coach Jack Del Rio said Garrard will be evaluated late this week, and the team is preparing to play without the ninth-year veteran.

The team will release Garrard's game status Friday, but having missed most of team meetings and practices, it's unlikely he will return against the Chiefs.

Edwards also could be out. He sprained his right thumb against the Titans and sat out practice Wednesday. If Edwards can't play, Bouman would make his first start since 2005.
