Blaine Gabbert injury: Jaguars QB out rest of preseason

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

Jaguars quarterback Blaine Gabbert is out the remainder of the preseason with a fracture in his thumb.

Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blaine Gabbert has a hairline fracture on his thumb on his throwing hand and will be out for the remainder of the Jaguars preseason. Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley announced the injury at his Monday press conference and noted that Gabbert will be out around two weeks.

Bradley noted that it was not a stress fracture, there was no space between the break, and Gabbert will not require surgery. The Jaguars medical staff believes he will be ready for Week 1 and he has a hard splint on his throwing hand right now.

Gabbert was announced as the starting quarterback before the news of his injury, but even as he sits out the final two games of the preseason he will still start Week 1 against the Kansas City Chiefs, granted he's recovered from his injury. Bradley also noted that the decision will not change while Gabbert sits out, no matter how Chad Henne performs going forward.
