Jaguars' quarterback Blaine Gabbert is having a hard time keeping his hands out of danger. The third-year quarterback already had a thumb injury heading into Week 1, but now has several stitches on his hand. The Missouri alum required 15 stitches due to a lacerated hand that was cut during the Jaguars' loss to the Chiefs.
Prior to the injury, Gabbert was 16-of-35 for 121 yards and two interceptions. He won the starting job following a successful preseason. His backup Chad Henne was his opponent for the starting quarterback competition, but came into Sunday's game in relief of Gabbert in the fourth quarter. Henne finished the game 3-of-6 for 36 yards.
There is uncertainty as to whether the latest injury to Gabbert will cause him to miss any playing time. He has had a problem with durability over his three seasons with the Jaguars. Last season, he tore his labrum in his non-throwing shoulder and was placed on injured reserve after just ten games. Henne would likely be the starter if Gabbert were to miss games due to injury.
