Jordan Rodgers has sports hernia surgery

The Jaguars didn’t take a quarterback in the draft, opting instead for a pair of undrafted free agents to add to Blaine Gabbert and Chad Henne this offseason.

One of those undrafted rookies won’t be making his case for a roster spot during OTAs. John Oehser of the Jaguars website reports that Jordan Rodgers, who played at Vanderbilt and is also known as Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers‘ younger brother, had sports hernia surgery and will be sidelined until training camp.

The news on Rodgers comes just after Matt Scott, the Arizona product also signed by the Jags, returned to work after suffering a high-ankle sprain during rookie minicamp. Scott’s going to get more reps during the team’s organized activities and June minicamp with Rodgers on the sideline, snaps that should serve him well in his battle with Rodgers for the third quarterback spot.

With the Jaguars’ new regime playing the evaluation game with quarterbacks, the winner of that spot could conceivably find himself higher in the pecking order before the year is out.

    Statistically, Gabbert is a top 10 QB when he has 2.6 seconds or more. Not a Gabbert fan, but the numbers don’t lie.

    It’s a shame. I think Rodgers eventually gets to some teams roster and sticks as a 2nd or 3rd stringer. Heard he is really intelligent just doesn’t have the same tangibles as his brother.

    First off, I’m not calling you out or anything, and I know the Jags line isn’t great, but I have trouble believing that. On an average snap, a quarterback has 2.5-5 seconds in the pocket– it’s hard to imagine that the theoretical 4% of Gabbert’s snaps under 2.6 seconds would drop him from a top 10 QB to a top 32 QB.

    Also, what measurement are you talking about when you say top 10?

    I could see him being cut, and picked up by Green Bay, where he sits a few years and learns a thing or two from his big bro.

    That Rodgers family liked names that went either way when said out loud. Do they have another brother named Sandy? Or Chris?
