Gabbert leaves game for Jags with leg injury

The new, improved Blaine Gabbert didn’t last long, and now he’s hurt to boot.

The Jaguars starting quarterback is done for the day, with backup Chad Henne warming up on the sidelines.

Vito Stellino of the Florida Times-Union reports that Gabbert has a bag of ice on his left thigh. The Jaguars announced he has a leg injury and won’t return.

The Jags trail 24-7, and Gabbert is 7-of-19 passing for 53 yards. That he got it to a positive number makes it an upgrade on his first half, but Gabbert has looked like the confused rookie of last year at times.
