JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -Jaguars kicker Josh Scobee has a strained right quadriceps muscle and probably won't play Sunday against Atlanta.
Scobee said Monday tests showed a 7-centimeter long strain and no tearing - good news for the Jaguars.
But Scobee also said the team planned to bring in another kicker this week, meaning he probably won't risk further injury against the Falcons.
``It's obviously not a severe injury and a long-lasting one,'' Scobee said. ``As far as knowing exactly when I'll be back, who knows. ... I hope not a few weeks. It better not be a few weeks. I'll be really upset if it's that long. I would love to be back by this week, but who knows? I can't give you any kind of answer because I don't even know.''
Scobee hurt his leg during warmups before the season opener against Tennessee. He was attempting a 48-yard field goal and hit the ground a foot behind the ball.
``If you play golf, you know what it feels like when you hit a fat one and you're swinging as hard as you can,'' Scobee said.
Scobee slammed his helmet to the ground, went to the locker room and returned with his leg heavily taped. The coaching staff used punter Adam Podlesh on kickoffs and agreed that Scobee would handle extra points and chip-shot field goals. He made a 22-yarder and one extra point.
But the injury also may have cost Jacksonville a chance at victory. The Jaguars, leading 10-6 in the third quarter, were forced to go on fourth-and-10 from the 19-yard line.
Instead of possibly having a 13-6 lead, they were stopped short of the first down. Tennessee scored the go-ahead touchdown on the ensuing possession.
``That's what makes me sick,'' Scobee said. ``Who knows what could have happened? I hate to get into regret or anything like that, but you never know.''
