Former Dolphins QB David Garrard Quits from NY Jets, Citing Continued Problems with His Knee

10

This should put to rest any lingering, "What if the Dolphins had kept Garrard despite his injury?" questions. Garrard injured his knee in a freak pool-side incident while watching his kids play during the week leading up to the first 2012 pre-season game. The non-contact knee injury knocked him out for the entire pre-season, with an estimated recovery time of about a month, and that left an opening for Ryan Tannehill to earn the starting job. Garrard was waived by the Dolphins the final week of pre-season, due to his knee being nowhere near 100%, and he went unsigned for the rest of the 2012 season, even after being medically cleared to play a few weeks into the season. His knee problems acting up this offseason after just a couple of days of practice at Jets mini-camp mean his career is likely over, even as a backup.
