Jaguars vs. Raiders 2012 recap: Chad Henne shows you why he won't start

Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Chad Henne Chad Henne's - Cary Edmondson-US PRESSWIRE

Jacksonville Jaguars starting quarterback Blaine Gabbert left Sunday's loss to the Oakland Raiders with a non-throwing shoulder injury, which allowed Chad Henne to show everyone why he's not going to start anytime soon.

When Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blaine Gabbert was hit on a dead ball offside call, he came down awkwardly on his non-throwing shoulder, likely where the injury occurred. After that drive, Gabbert was on the sideline having his shoulder looked at and wincing in pain as the team trainers worked on his shoulder.

The very next drive Gabbert came back on the field, but the team decided to run the ball three straight times and pull Gabbert from the game, replacing him with Chad Henne. Henne has been a quarterback a lot of Jaguars fans have started to clamor for, asking "Well, why not see what Henne can do?"

Chad Henne thoroughly answered that question.

Until late int he fourth quarter, the Jaguars offense under Chad Henne was hovering right around zero to negative yards of offense and sputtered away a 17-3 lead, unable to do anything at all offensively outside of some of the turnovers that placed the offense in field goal range. Henne ended the day 9-for-20 with 71 passing yards and was sacked three times, often holding the football.

The status of Blaine Gabbert right now going forward is unknown, but his arm wasn't in a sling which is generally a good sign. It's possible it was just a hyper-extension or a dislocation, but as frustrating as Gabbert has been to watch, he's clearly the best option the Jaguars have at quarterback.
