Gabbert likely out Sunday

Posted Oct 7, 2013

Jacksonville Jaguars HC Gus Bradley says QB Blaine Gabbert likely out of Denver game with Grade 2 hamstring strain.

JACKSONVILLE – Blaine Gabbert almost certainly won’t play Sunday at Denver.

But when Gabbert recovers from a Grade 2 hamstring strain sustained in a loss at St. Louis on Sunday, Jaguars Head Coach Gus Bradley said the third-year veteran likely again will be the team’s starting quarterback.

Gabbert is week-to-week, according to Bradley, but isn’t expected to play Sunday.

“Most likely he is out this week,” Bradley said Monday, a day after the Jaguars’ 34-20 loss to the Rams at the Edward Jones Dome.

Asked if Gabbert would start when healthy, Bradley replied, “Right now, that’s my thought.”

Gabbert completed 9 of 19 passes for 181 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions Sunday and left the game in the third quarter with a hamstring injury.  Chad Henne, the team’s starter in Week Two and Three with Gabbert out with a lacerated hand, completed 7 of 13 passes in place of Gabbert Sunday for 89 yards and a touchdown.

The Jaguars (0-5) will visit Denver (5-0) Sunday.
