JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback David Garrard won't travel with the team for Sunday's game against Kansas City as he continues to recover from the effects of a concussion.

Garrard was hurt during this past Monday's game against Tennessee and has not practiced this week.

Jaguars head coach Jack Del Rio said Trent Edwards, who suffered a thumb injury against the Titans after replacing Garrard, did some work in practice on Friday. Recently re-signed Todd Bouman has taken the majority of snaps in practice this week and could get the start Sunday.

"Trent got a little bit of work today. David won't travel, won't play," Del Rio told reporters after Friday's practice. "We don't have to make a decision who to start until game time."

Garrard was a spectator at practice on Friday after staying home each of the first two work days this week.

"We're erring on the side of safety," Del Rio said about Garrard. "I would anticipate him being cleared on Monday or Tuesday and being back at practice."

As for Sunday, it could be Edwards or Bouman in the starter's role.

Edwards started the first two games of the season for the Buffalo Bills, then was waived in late September and was claimed by Jacksonville. He completed 29- of-52 passes for 241 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions for the Bills, and on Monday finished 14-of-24 for 140 yards with two picks.

Bouman, a veteran of 13 NFL seasons, last saw action in 2005 with New Orleans when he started three games and completed 55.7% of his passes for 722 yards and two touchdowns with seven interceptions.

The 38-year-old journeyman spent time with the Jaguars last season and for a period from 2007-08. He was re-signed on September 21, just after Luke McCown was lost for the season with a torn ACL in his right knee, then was released again and re-signed on Wednesday.
