Carroll: Leftwich, Fitzgerald updates
Let's get to the injuries.
Byron Leftwich is today's big story, showing up with an ankle problem. Yes, it's the same ankle that was broken last season. Could this be related? Sure, but it's not likely. The story on how this happened hasn't come out yet, but it's serious enough that the team sent him for an MRI. Leftwich is going to be a game-time decision and between now and then, he's going to move into the training room. Leftwich has a history of being able to play at a high level despite pain. He's immobile when healthy, so it's not like he's going to be limited further by the injury. Be sure to have a backup at the ready, perhaps even David Garrard. I'll be sure to get the scoop in time for this Sunday's last minute Med Check.
