Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blaine Gabbert started 14 games during his rookie year in 2011. The Jaguars struggled to a 5-11 record, going 4-10 with Gabbert as the starting quarterback. There were times during the season when Gabbert would have a handful of drives and looked good, showing his potential, but there was also a lot of the time where he just played poorly. Recently, the Jaguars second year quarterback did a sit-down interview with Gene Frenette for the Florida Times-Union, and revealed that he played nearly all of the 2011 season with a toe injury.
Gabbert also said in course of talking about grind of season that he played nearly all of it with unspecified toe injury, never revealed b4— Eugene Frenette (@GeneFrenette) April 2, 2012
A lot of Gabbert's troubles during the season struggled with not setting his feet and stepping into his throws, among other things. It's certainly possible a toe injury would effect that part of his game, but it's unknown right now when the injury occurred or how long it ailed him, but evidently Gabbert indicated it was most of the season. The article with Frenette will be up on Jacksonville.com sometime this afternoon.
