JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Former Arizona Wildcats quarterback Matt Scott should receive more snaps during offseason workouts with the Jacksonville Jaguars now that the team is down two three quarterbacks.

Former Vanderbilt starter Jordan Rodgers, an undrafted rookie and the younger brother of Packers star Aaron Rodgers, had sports hernia surgery Tuesday and will be out until training camp in July.

Rodgers injured his groin on the first day of rookie minicamp this month. He will miss the remaining 11 on-field workouts before training camp. Without him, Blaine Gabbert, Chad Henne and Scott, another undrafted rookie, will split repetitions.

• Chuck Muncie, a Pro Bowl running back with the Saints and the Chargers, has died at age 60, the NFL clubs and a family spokesman said Tuesday.

Muncie family spokesman Vintage Foster of AMF Media Group in San Ramon, Calif., said Muncie died at his L.A.-area home on Monday from heart failure.

Muncie was the Saints' first-round pick, third overall, out of California in 1976. He played 4 1/2 seasons in New Orleans before being traded in 1980 to San Diego, where he finished his nine-year NFL career.

In 1979, Muncie became the first Saint to rush for 1,000 yards, finishing with 1,198 and 11 touchdowns, and his 1,506 total yards from scrimmage earned him the first of his three Pro Bowl selections.

• Charles Woodson will visit with the Broncos today so both sides can determine whether Denver is a good fit.

Aside from a meeting with the 49ers after the Packers released him in February, the 36-year-old defensive back has drawn little interest as a free agent.

Pima 22nd at national golf event after 1 day

The Pima men's golf team finished the first round of the NJCAA national tournament in 22nd place out of 24 teams on Tuesday at the Rawls Golf Course in Lubbock, Texas.

David Chung shot the best round for the Aztecs, finishing with a 3-over-par 75, which put him tied for 36th individually. Austin Stuessel shot a 77, and Joseph Courtney shot a 78.

On Monday, Courtney was recognized as part of the NJCAA Division I PING All-District team (District I) by the Golf Coaches Association of America.

• It appears as if Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert will enter Govenor Charlie in the Preakness on Saturday.

After the horse ran well over six furlongs on Monday at Churchill Downs, Baffert said Tuesday: "He came of his work really, really well. We are prepared to go."

Baffert is at home in California this week and has been receiving reports from Kentucky on the colt from his longtime assistant, Jimmy Barnes.

Govenor Charlie did not run in the Kentucky Derby because of a minor foot bruise that caused him to miss training time in April.
