Jags QB Brunell Needs Stitches
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) _ Jaguars quarterback Mark Brunell had his left elbow stitched up Monday to repair a cut sustained in the team’s loss to the Indianapolis Colts.
Coach Jack Del Rio said the injury played a part in the left-handed quarterback’s poor day in Jacksonville’s 23-13 loss on Sunday.
Brunell was 12-for-23 for 90 yards before being replaced by Byron Leftwich late in the game. For the second straight week, Leftwich led the Jaguars to a late touchdown.
Del Rio said Brunell would start against Houston on Sunday if he’s healthy.
