Gardner Minshew injury: Multiple fractures, strained ligament to throwing hand

NFL: Jacksonville Jaguars at San Diego Chargers Robert Hanashiro-USA TODAY Sports

Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Gardner Minshew has reportedly suffered multiple injuries to his throwing hand over the season and it’s been confirmed with x-rays during the bye week, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

If Minshew can’t go next week, it’ll likely be veteran backup Mike Glennon starting against the Houston Texans for their Week 9 matchup. But the team should absolutely start sixth round rookie quarterback Jake Luton because you need to see what you have in the guy but in the end he gives this team the best opportunity to lose.

It’s a win-win!
