Blaine Gabbert QB JAC Nov 21 '12
Jaguars placed Blaine Gabbert (forearm, shoulder) and Laurent Robinson (concussion) on injured reserve, ending their seasons.
Gabbert sustained a right forearm injury last week and will eventually need surgery on his left shoulder. Backup Chad Henne has also exposed just how bad Gabbert has been by sparking a previous dormant offense against the Texans last week, throwing for 354 yards, four touchdowns and no interceptions. Henne was likely to stick as the Jags' starter the rest of the way even if Gabbert got healthy. At this point, the 2011 No. 10 overall pick can no longer be considered a franchise quarterback. He went 1-9 as a sophomore, completing just 58.3 percent of his passes while throwing nine touchdowns against six interceptions. The Jags would be wise to show interest in West Virginia's Geno Smith or USC's Matt Barkley come April's draft.
