Gabbert was named the team's starting quarterback after the second preseason game. He suffered a fractured thumb in that exhibition game, though, and missed the rest of the preseason, putting his Week 1 status in jeopardy. If Gabbert can revert back to the form he captured in the second preseason game, the Jaguars offense has a chance to look much better.
It's been a long offseason, but the Jaguars will finally take the field with a new logo, new uniforms and a new head coach. There are also plenty of fresh faces on the Jaguars' roster after general manager David Caldwell did a massive overhaul to start the rebuilding.
The Chiefs, meanwhile, were the only team in the NFL worse than the Jaguars in 2012. They responded by hiring a new head coach and trading for former 49ers quarterback Alex Smith. Kansas City is favored by 3.5 points on Sunday.
The official list of inactive players for Sunday's game:
DE Allen Bailey
QB Tyler Bray
WR Chad Hall
LB Nico Johnson
LB Josh Martin
S Bradley McDougald
