Post Byron Leftwich - OUT
humm, the Lions play the Jags in a few weeks...

from CBS Sportsline:

Jaguars quarterback Byron Leftwich, who was off to a sizzling start in leading his team to a 5-3 record, will be lost at least four weeks -- perhaps the rest of the season -- with a partically torn lateral collateral ligament (LCL) in his left knee, a Jaguars source said. Advertisement

The injury is not as severe as a torn anterior-cruciate ligament, but it takes time to heal, which is why Leftwich could be gone for the season.

Leftwich will be re-examined Monday and though no surgery has been scheduled, it has not been ruled out, those sources said.

then again, despite earlier reports that feared Bryon Leftwich might miss several games, if not the entire season, the Jaguars starting quarterback may not miss any time. Dr. James Andrews diagnosed Leftwich with a sprained lateral collateral ligament in his left knee, according to the Associated Press, and said that he will not need surgery, only rest. ''We'll re-evaluate Monday and have a better sense of when Byron will be able to join us," head coach Jack Del Rio said on Tuesday. "We have not ruled out the Detroit Lions here at home.''
