Notebook: After a week of rest, quarterback Austin Howard is ready for action

BATON ROUGE, Louisiana -- Austin Howard looked like his usual self at Southern’s Tuesday morning practice, moving around in the pocket and slinging a couple sharp passes against the first team defense.

He might’ve even looked more fresh than usual after spending a chunk of last week’s practices in a protective walking boot as a spectator on the sidelines.

“It’s mostly my ankle, I had an injury from the last game,” Howard said. “It’s getting better day-by-day and that’s how I’ve been taking it.”

Howard was one of a number of veteran players Southern coach Dawson Odums took the liberty of getting some rest during the Jaguars’ extended off period. Southern had two consecutive open dates on its schedule and doesn’t play again until October 15 against Jackson State.
