Blaine Gabbert remains on schedule. Gabbert, the Jaguars’ starting quarterback, returned to practice on Monday as the Jaguars began preparing for the regular-season opener, and though he did not take part in team activities, Head Coach Gus Bradley said his return from a thumb injury has gone according to expectations. "He’s progressing as planned," Bradley said Monday. Gabbert, named the starting quarterback over Chad Henne during preseason, missed the final two preseason games with a sprained thumb.
Undrafted rookie Jones found home Abry Jones’ dreams of playing in the NFL appeared to suffer a setback when he missed the final seven games of his senior year in 2012 at Georgia after tearing ligaments in his left ankle.Even though the defensive lineman started 26 of 46 games and received the school’s David Jacobs Award as a player who, by example, portrayed courage, spirit, character and determination, he was bypassed in the draft.
The Jaguars made one roster move on Monday, adding rookie fullback Lonnie Pryor to the practice squad. That was a pretty quiet day compared to Sunday, when the Jaguars were awarded seven players off waivers, cut seven players and signed seven more players to the practice squad, the Jaguars front office was pretty quiet. And while things won't be as busy as they were Sunday, GM Dave Caldwell and coach Gus Bradley have said they will be aggressive in terms of trying to improve the bottom part of the roster and special-teams play, which means the team will be signing and cutting players on a somewhat regular basis.
