Blaine Gabbert injury: Jaguars QB hurts elbow, questionable to return

Kim Klement-US PRESSWIRE

The Jaguars may have to try and pull an upset over the Texans without their starting quarterback.

Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blaine Gabbert has left the team's game against the Houston Texans on Sunday with an injury to his elbow. Gabbert's return to the game is questionable, according to John Clayton of ESPN. He has been replaced by Chad Henne.

The quarterback was injured on Jacksonville's first offensive drive of the game. After completed his only two passes to move the Jaguars into Houston territory at the 44, Gabbert was sacked by Daniel Manning. The sack was as bad as can be for Jacksonville, as it ended the drive with a fumble and knocked Gabbert from the game.

Henne came in to lead a scoring drive on the Jaguars' next two possessions. He hit Marcedes Lewis on a 13-yard strike to tie the game in the first quarter and then followed that up with a 67-yard touchdown pass in the second to Cecil Shorts III. The throw to Shorts III put his team out in front.

Jacksonville is gunning for an upset without their starting quarterback as they lead Houston, 14-7.
