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.
X-rays during this week revealed that Jaguars’ QB Gardner Minshew II has multiple fractures and a strained ligament in his right thumb, sources told ESPN.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) October 29, 2020
Minshew has had discomfort in his thumb since Oct. 11 at Houston. Jaguars didn’t know about Minshew’s injury until this week
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!
