Garrard Has Surgery To Repair Injured Finger

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- Jaguars quarterback David Garrard has undergone surgery to repair a torn ligament in his right middle finger.

Garrard had surgery Thursday at Baptist Orthopaedic Surgery Center in Jacksonville. Garrard posted a picture of himself wearing a sling and cast on Twitter following the outpatient procedure. Garrard tweeted "Surgery went great. Now for the recovery!"

Team spokesman Dan Edwards says Garrard had surgery to repair a tendon disruption and a ligament rupture.

Garrard said Wednesday that rehabilitation is expected to take two months. He slammed his hand into Indianapolis defensive end Dwight Freeney's helmet on Dec. 19. X-rays were negative, and Garrard insisted his finger was just jammed. But he re-injured it during Sunday's 20-17 overtime loss to Washington.
