Gabbert leaves practice field with ankle sprain

Perhaps the worst quarterback competition in the NFL got a little bit worse Monday.

The Jaguars announced that former first-rounder Blaine Gabbert sprained his right ankle, causing him to miss the end of practice.

The team said he’d be “evaluated” the next two days.

Gabbert and Chad Henne are duking it out for the honor of leading the team which will need to draft a quarterback in the first round next year.

Early indications are that the injury isn’t serious, with a player who was in the training room telling Ryan O’Halloran of the Florida Times-Union that Gabbert was “fine.”

Even if he is, the Jaguars are far from it at his position.
