David Garrard will be the Jaguars quarterback when they play their season opener against the Tennessee Titans on September 11.
Jaguars head coach Jack Del Rio confirmed this on Tuesday for the first time since training camp opened.
Garrard looked rusty in his first preseason action last Friday against the Atlanta Falcons, but he missed a bunch of practice early in camp with a back injury. The Jaguars coaching staff expects to see a better performance from Garrard this Saturday when they play their third preseason game against the Buffalo Bills.
There had been speculation recently that Jaguars rookie quarterback Blaine Gabbert was starting to make a push for the starting quarterback job, but a shaky performance against the Falcons may have sealed his fate.
