Blaine Gabbert Injury: Jaguars QB Getting MRI

Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blaine Gabbert will undergo an MRI on Monday to explore hamstring and toe injuries. Gabbert was forced to leave Sunday's game against the Houston Texans early, though there didn't appear to be too much concern over the injury at that time. Head coach Mike Mularkey called the injury a strain and said they decided to keep Gabbert out of action so as not to risk making it worse.

Gabbert finished the day 7-19 for 53 yards, which was indicative of Jacksonville's overall offensive effort. They managed a meager 117 total yards on the day.

Chad Henne would start in Gabbert's place if Gabbert were forced to miss action. Henne completed two passes for 23 yards in relief on Sunday.

Blaine Gabbert Injury Brings In Chad Henne

Chad Henne is replacing Blaine Gabbert in Jacksonville as the Jaguars are getting beat down by the Houston Texans. Gabbert has an ice pack on his left thigh so it's actually an injury that's giving Henne his shot.

It's unclear exactly what the injury is or whether it's serious. Henne was brought on as a backup in the offseason, one of the better backup options in the league.

Gabbert has not looked great in the Jaguars game, completing only 7-of-19 passes for 53 yards and a touchdown. You couldn't blame the Jaguars if they decided to make a change at quarterback, injury or not. No interceptions is a good start for Gabbert but averaging less than three yards per completion is not.
