Blaine Gabbert cleared for full practice


Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blaine Gabbert has been cleared for full practice. That brings an interesting debate into north Florida, do you go back to Gabbert or do you stick with his replacement Chad Henne.

Henne is expected to start for the Jaguars on Sunday, it could be lofty to expect Gabbert to return as the starting quarterback with the game less than a week away and the travel to London.

Other than that, Gabbert just wasn’t good when he played earlier this season. Gabbert completed 48.8 percent of his passes threw one touchdown and 7 interceptions and the Jaguars lost by a combined 74 points in games he played.

Henne, by comparison, in the games he has played, has completed 59.5% of his passes for 1,222 yards, two touchdowns and five interceptions.

You’re really going with the lesser of two evils here when deciding who to start but it looks like Henne will get the nod. He has been the better quarterback this season. The Jaguars also shouldn’t rush Gabbert onto the field, he has been banged up and you’d be risking another injury if he were to start.
