The Jaguars don’t need any more bad news after their 28-2 loss to the Chiefs.
But quarterback Blaine Gabbert left the game late after a cut on his throwing hand which required 15 stitches. Of course, that’s the same hand as the broken thumb which kept him out of the end of the preseason.
“I don’t think so,” Gabbert said when asked if the original injury was aggravated, via Michael DiRocco of ESPN.com. “We’ll know more tomorrow and see what the doctors say and move on.”
Of course, it might have been hard to tell if it was bothering him.
Gabbert was 16-of-35 passing for 121 yards and two interceptions. He was also sacked six times, which may have made getting pulled for Chad Henne late a relief.
