INJURY LIST GROWS

The Jaguars suffered several injuries in Saturday night's game when linebacker Bryan Schwartz went out in the third quarter with a strained hamstring, tight end Damon Jones left midway through the second quarter with a bruised knee and reserve cornerback Dee Moronkola left late in third with a high-ankle sprain.

Jones reentered the game, but Schwartz and Moronkola never returned. Schwartz is expected to be out from one to 1 1/2 weeks, while Moronkola will probably miss two weeks.

Brady bobbled the pass once but pulled it in for a touchdown.

CURRY PROVIDES BRIGHT SPOT

Eric Curry may not have guaranteed himself a spot on the Jaguars' roster Saturday night in the first half, but he didn't hurt himself, either.

Curry, a reserve defensive end who provided valuable depth last season, had a better first half than most of the Jaguars. The team allowed 304 yards in the half, and it would have been 316 without Curry.

He had two tackles for loss in the first half -- one a 4-yarder on a sweep by Giants running back Sean Bennett early in the second quarter. …
