Garcia will start at QB for Lions against Vikings

ALLEN PARK, Mich. (Nov. 30, 2005) -- Jeff Garcia will start at quarterback for the Detroit Lions on Sunday against Minnesota.

Dick Jauron made the announcement two days after taking over as Lions coach on an interim basis in place of the fired Steve Mariucci.

Jauron also said cornerback Dre' Bly apologized to his teammates at a meeting. Bly was harshly critical of quarterback Joey Harrington and the team's management during media interviews earlier this week.
