Jaguars QB Blaine Gabbert’s status uncertain with shoulder injury
Jacksonville Jaguars starting quarterback Blaine Gabbert suffered a torn labrum in his non-throwing shoulder, an MRI indicated on Tuesday.
Blaine Gabbert’s availability for Sunday’s game against the Green Bay Packers is uncertain. According to ESPN, Gabbert is seeking a second opinion on his shoulder.
Before Gabbert’s MRI exam, head coach Mike Mularkey was confident that Gabbert would be able to play this Sunday.
“There is a good chance he will be able to play this week,” Mularkey said, according to The Sports Xchange. “We will see how it is on Wednesday. Chad (Henne) will be prepared to go, as he is every week, not different. ”
Gabbert was injured in the second quarter of last Sunday’s game against the Oakland Raiders and did not return.
The Jaguars were up 14-3 before Gabbert left with the injury, and went on to lose 26-23 in overtime. In his absence, backup QB Chad Henne completed 9 of 20 passes for just 71 yards. The offense looked inept without Gabbert and Pro Bowl running back Maurice Jones-Drew, who also left the game with an injury.
Jones-Drew has already been ruled out against the Packers and could miss extended time.
