The Jaguars expect to find out today whether quarterback Blaine Gabbert will be available for Sunday’s game at Green Bay, but the early indications are that the right-handed Gabbert has suffered a torn labrum in his left shoulder.
That was the diagnosis from the team’s medical staff, according to ESPN’s Ed Werder, and today Gabbert will get a second opinion from Dr. James Andrews.
Gabbert was playing well on Sunday before he was knocked out of the game, and the Jaguars had a 17-3 lead in the second quarter. But after Gabbert was replaced by backup Chad Henne, the Jaguars’ offense fell apart. Henne completed just nine of 20 passes for 71 yards, and the Jaguars would end up losing 26-23.
Henne’s performance was lousy, but Gabbert has shown some promise this season. The Jaguars don’t look like they’re going anywhere this season, but if they’re not going to go anywhere, they’d at least like their young quarterback healthy and on the field.
