Blaine Gabbert cleared for full practice

The Jaguars are in London for the week and they’re not going to deprive English fans of a chance to watch an installment of the quarterback competition that has captivated America for the last few months.

Hays Carlyon of the Florida Times Union reports that the Jaguars announced Wednesday that Blaine Gabbert has been cleared for a return to full practice. Gabbert has missed the last two games with a hamstring injury, but he’s apparently healed up enough to get back into the mix at quarterback.

With Gabbert set to practice, attention will now shift to whether or not the Jaguars will give their 2011 first-round pick another chance to run with the starting job.

Chad Henne, who has started the last two games as well as two others earlier in the season when Gabbert was sidelined by a thumb injury, said Wednesday that he expects to start against the 49ers. That seems like a reasonable expectation as Henne has topped 300 yards in each of the last two weeks while completing just over 64 percent of his passes, numbers that mitigate his three interceptions and no touchdowns. Gabbert, on the other hand, only completed half his passes in one of the three starts he’s made this season while delivering one touchdown against seven picks.

    1st round pick, can anyone believe it?!?!?!
    Is Byron leftwich out there still?

    Gabbert has thrown 1 TD and 3 Pick Sixes.

    That said, Gabbert is our best chance to win Teddy Bridewater. So run him on out there Gus and let him work his magic.

    How does he only complete 50% of his passes, when he’s only throwing the ball 5 yards downfield?

    He’s beyond brutal.

    Why are we subjecting our closest Allie to this “duel” – and what happens if Gabbert overthrows a bomb and it hits the real Big Ben ?

    I don’t expect to see either starting next year. but henne playing well could be enough to get a chance top compete with a number one pick next year.

    Can we start to consider it “tanking” if they keep trotting Gabbert out there?? Henne isn’t great, but he’s MILES ahead of Gabbert as an NFL QB.

    Blaine Gabbert is cleared to return to the injury list.

    START GABBERT!!!!

    I hate the Jaguars. The Jags aren’t just bad, they insist on being boring too. They have a gameplan, and they stick to it, even if its obvious the plan is terrible.

    Worst news I’ve heard all week. Actually, if Bradly wants to ensure the #1 pick he will keep starting this joke of a QB. What else does he possibly need to see from Gabbert?

    The Neocon & Freemason League needs Tebow more than ever! The rest of the players are so unlikable, like NBA’ers!

  14. crappygovernment says: Oct 23, 2013 12:20 PM

    Shad Khan should sell the Jags to a more competitive owner and go back to the 3rd world and buy a team there. Why bother buying an NFL team to do a lousy job as owner and blackball Tebow anyway?

    And silence from thegreatgabbert. I guess she/he has found another QB to be obsessed over!

    The Bills, Titans, Rams, and Browns have had starting quarterbacks go down with injuries, and the Jaguars, Vikings, and Bucaneers have has serious question marks at the position all season.

    Tebow’s phone hasn’t rung for a reason. The guy can’t throw the football and isn’t worth the headache and circus that comes with signing him. Brady Quinn and Matt Flynn are getting more love than Tebow. JaMarcus Russell had more interest in him than Tebow did.

    Yeah, he won a playoff game against the Steelers. He barely hit an open Damariyus Thomas ten yards down field with no one within eight yards of him and otherwise rode his defense to thrilling victories over teams scoring ten points.

    Tebow isn’t the answer unless the question is, “Who are we going to throw out there to prove we’ve thrown in the towel on the season?” The Jags already have Gabbert under contract to officially waive the white flag.

    Tebow is 9-7 as a starter with a playoff win! It is not Pakistan, England or Israel’s football league, it is 80% Christian America’s, comrade!

    Tebow beat the Steelers in the playoff before he was blackballed!
