Blaine Gabbert injury: Jaguars QB 'iffy' vs. Packers

Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blaine Gabbert will have the MRI of his non-throwing shoulder sent to Dr. James Andrews for further evaluation and could be out Sunday, according to a report.

Phil Sears-US PRESSWIRE

Blaine Gabbert went down with a shoulder injury against the Oakland Raiders on Sunday when the Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback went down awkwardly on a free play. Gabbert laid on the ground wincing in pain, but stayed in the game for another drive before being pulled for Chad Henne. There is a chance Chad Henne could start on Sunday, however.

Gabbert's MRI is being sent to Dr. James Andrews with the fear of a "labrum problem" however, according to ESPN's Chris Mortenson, and is considered to be "iffy" for Sunday's game against the Green Bay Packers.

Jaguars head coach Mike Mularkey said on Monday at a press conference that they were still reviewing the injury and Gabbert had a chance to practice on Sunday, but if his MRI is being sent for a second opinion it's probably not a very good sign. While it's a non-throwing shoulder injury, playing with it could risk further injury to other aspects of his shoulder and just force him to play through massive pain and risk even further injury trying to protect himself.
