Gabbert good to go, despite banged up “butt muscle”

The Week Three injury report roundup, as compiled last night by Josh Alper, made no reference to Jaguars quarterback Blaine Gabbert.

And for good reason.  Gabbert, after getting banged up in Week Two against the Texans, is ready to roll against the Colts.

Gabbert had an injury, as explained by coach Mike Mularkey, to the “butt muscle” against Houston.  Gabbert didn’t miss a snap in practice this week.

More encouraging for the Jags is that cornerback Derek Cox will make his 2012 debut, after overcoming a hamstring injury.

A first-round pick in 2011, Gabbert has four career wins, two of which came against the Colts.  If the Colts win Sunday, the No. 1 pick in the 2012 draft will already be halfway to Gabbert’s career victory total.

  1. I understand why the coach wants Gabbert’s butt muscle to be ready to go. Freeney & Mathis might cause him to hurt it worse by throwing him around in the backfield. Gabbert will meet the turf a lot this game.

  2. No need to worry, they have Maurice Jones Drew, who didn’t hold out during the season, which is why they have won all their games so far,…oh wait….

    Ooooooh ok I see… I figured a QB like that must be doing something extra to keep his job as a starter in the NFL… it all makes sense now.

    But, we’re all supposed to eat crow?
