Gabbert will play, unless doctors block it

Getty Images

Like Ravens safety Ed Reed, Jaguars quarterback Blaine Gabbert has a torn labrum in his shoulder.  Like Reed, Gabbert wants to play.

Unlike Reed, Gabbert may not be able to.

A source with knowledge of the situation tells PFT that Gabbert wants to play with the injury in his non-throwing shoulder, and that he plans to do so unless the doctors prevent it.

If Gabbert can’t go, Chad Henne would get the start against the Packers at Lambeau Field.

That’s the Packers.  At Lambeau Field.

We admire Gabbert’s willingness to play with an injury.  But it’s the Packers.  At Lambeau Field.

    Might as well sit as the Jags have zero chance at winning against the Packers.

  2. jjb0811 says: Oct 23, 2012 4:08 PM

    Not even the 1/2 way point and all the Jags can focus on is (a) the firing of the GM & (b) the draft.

    Henne played well against the Pack the last time he played in Lambeau when he was with Miami. Miami won. Hope it’s not the same outcome this time.

    Might as well sit as the Jags have shown zero ability to protect the quarterback and the receivers have shown zero ability to get open.

    Gabbert wants to play, because he needs to prove he’s worth keeping. At this rate, the GM is on the way out. Gabbert needs to convince the next guy that he is the franchise QB.

    He needs to play and play well otherwise the jags will be drafting his replacement next offseason.

    Matty Barkley, from LAX to JAX.

    That’s the Packers. At Lambeau Field.

    Are we talking about the 4-3 Packers, who are 2-1, including a one-point win over a terrible Saints team, at Lambeau this season? Yeah, they’re unbeatable.

  9. jjb0811 says: Oct 23, 2012 4:39 PM

    the expansion Jags weren’t this terrible! never thought I’d long for the days of Brunnel tossing it up to J. Smith.

    Doctors, on behalf of professional football fans everywhere, please block him from playing.

    I am a Packer fan and his playing equals a W, but I would rather watch a game without having to see obvious substandard talent out on the field. Gabbert is the worst.

    Gabbert was a reach for a first round pick last year when he came out. Now it seems like they’re going to take the Cleveland Browns Colt McCoy route on him…

    “With the first pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, the Kansas City CHIEFS select…Matt Barkley, quarterback, USC”.

    “Yea, though I go into the Valley of Death Metal, Gas Guzzlers, Bad Beer, and Cholestorol, I shall fear no evil, for I am The Great Gabbert”.

    If Chad Henne plays the whole game he is good for 3 turnovers hilself, one of which will be a pic six. Jags would have a better chance with Gabbert if his Labrum was torn in his throwing shoulder, his achilles was torn and he had a concussion.

    I have a strong feeling Clay Matthews will be the league leader in sacks by the end of Sunday

  16. despenc925 says: Oct 23, 2012 6:22 PM

    i don’t know why people think Matt Barkley is gonna be drafted and lead them to glory. if you look at the records…USC quarterbacks don’t have a good history in making it in the nfl

  17. emoney826 says: Oct 23, 2012 6:50 PM

    Yeah the same Packer team that won the past four games against your pathetic overrated team. Fortunately for you, you get to think your team has a chance at the division title until December, only for your hopes and dreams to get crushed when they play green bay. You’re either naive or an idiot, and judging by the many ignorant posts I’ve read from you over the past two months, I’m guessing you’re the latter.

    What’s a Packer linked story without a few jabs from a Queen’s fan?

    Did anybody take time to look at the second half of the schedule? The Vikings will be lucky to go 8-8 and then the excuses will flow like wine. How nobody expected them to win this year. Actually that’s basically true every year and coincidentally the organization saves money for their owner but never having to buy a trophy case. Or any Superbowl rings.

  19. seahawks4alltime says: Oct 23, 2012 7:38 PM

    Yeah…and it’s Mike. Florio. Talking about the Packers. At Lambeau Field.

    I really don`t know if there is another non-Packer fan who is so obsessed with the Packers than this guy. Why don`t you just give up on the 50+ years of futility and come over to the light.

    Maybe Blaine’s nut sack dropped, you never know.

  22. axespray says: Oct 23, 2012 9:47 PM

    Didn’t the Jags left tackle shut out Jared Allen?
    If he’s any good, just Blitz Clay up the middle…

  23. mrcogburn says: Oct 23, 2012 10:32 PM

    A one-armed Gabbert is better than a two-armed Henne. Look at him. That boy ain’t right.

  24. 2ndaryinsanity says: Oct 23, 2012 10:39 PM

    @ thankheavenfornumberseven…. have you ever even watched a football game before? Have you been smokin’ some of that wacky weed? Because I’m trying to figure out how you could compare Drew Brees and the Saints to Blaine Gabbert and the Jaguars without MJ Drew?
    I’m guessing blind hatred for the Packers has robbed you of any common sense.
    Anybody else have possible suggestions as to why thankheavenfornumberseven would make such a ridiculous comparison?

  25. goatcheez says: Oct 23, 2012 10:51 PM

    Gabbert’s never had a toughness problem. It’s always been his atrocious internal clock. He has no pocket presence to save his life. It’s not that he’s scared, the guy played through rib and foot injuries last year too. He’s just a complete project at QB and had no business being drafted in the 1st round. Yet another huge reach by Gene Smith. Gabbert would be a solid backup, but that’s all.

  26. thankheavenfornumberseven says: Oct 24, 2012 12:39 AM

    I’m sorry, I’m the idiot. I thought the Packers were 4-3, but now I realize that they will never lose another game and will win the next 20 Super Bowls. Clearly, I’m the delusional one.

    #7 no words could be more true than your first sentence. At least you now realize.

    @thankheaven – admitting you have a problem is the first step. Hope you get well soon.
