Jacksonville Jaguars tab Blaine Gabbert starting QB


The Jacksonville Jaguars are clearly the worst team in the NFL, at least after three weeks, as they look as lifeless and unmotivated as any team in the league right now. It doesn’t help matters that their starting quarterback is out with an injury, but Blaine Gabbert is expected to return this week in hopes of leading the Jags to their first win of the season.

Vito Stellino of the Florida Times-Union reports Gabbert is cleared to return this week, and head coach Gus Bradley expects him to start.

Gabbert suffered a lacerated throwing hand during the Week 1 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs, and needed 15 stitches to close the gash.

Don’t mistake Gabbert for a savior, as he’s shown he’s nothing more than a backup through his first three years in the NFL, but it has to be disheartening for the team and the franchise as a whole to see everything they’ve invested in Gabbert be all for nothing, and this roster needs to be completely purged by the time they’re drafting Teddy Bridgewater with the No. 1 overall pick in next May’s NFL Draft.
