Jacksonville Jaguars starting quarterback Blaine Gabbert left Sunday's 27-7 loss to the Houston Texans early with what was believed to be a leg injury, but after an MRI it was revealed to not be a serious injury and he will play on Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts.

Gabbert's injury was believed to be a hamstring issue, but according to head coach Mike Mularkey after an MRI it was revealed to be a butt muscle injury. Gabbert is expected to be limited in practice on Wednesday, but as of right now the plan is for him to play in the next game.

According to Mularkey after the game on Sunday, Gabbert originally injured himself prior to halftime but made it known he wanted to get back into the game and try to get the Jaguars back on track in into the game. Gabbert was pulled in the fourth quarter when the game was well in hand, to avoid any further aggravation of his butt.
