Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley said that Blaine Gabbert will not play in Week 2's game against the Raiders. The quarterback suffered an injury to his right hand on a rushing play in Week 1 vs. the Chiefs.
He was a disaster before exiting the game, finishing with 121 passing yards and two picks on 10-of-35 attempts. He finished with a passer rating of 30.8 and his Total QBR was at a paltry 1.2 thanks to allowing six sacks for a loss of 50 yards.
Gabbert also didn't throw the ball down the field and taking yards after the catch out of the equation, he had a whopping 22 yards in the air. As his replacement, Chad Henne wasn't too impressive with 3-of-6 passing for 36 yards on Sunday.
Fantasy impact: Obviously, we hope you weren't starting Gabbert in your fantasy league, but things could be looking up for other Jaguars. Cecil Shorts put up better numbers last season with Henne at the helm and the Jaguars produced more passing yards with him, too. Gabbert was impressive in the preseason, but he didn't really have to deal with much of a pass rush. Henne won't be worth picking up and Maurice Jones-Drew's value shouldn't change much.
