Jaguars QB Gabbert questionable for opener

Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blaine Gabbert is questionable
for Sunday’s season opener against Kansas City.

Although Gabbert practiced for the fourth consecutive day
without any setbacks Friday, coach Gus Bradley says his status will
be a game-day decision.

Gabbert is recovering from a hairline fracture in his right
thumb. He missed the final two preseason games because of the
injury and has been dealing with pain and a weakened grip.

But he’s been able to throw with little or no noticeable issues
this week.

Gabbert says he’s ”getting more and more comfortable throwing
the ball and we’re just seeing how it feels. It’s kind of finicky
deal, so hopefully it’s A-OK tomorrow morning.”

If Gabbert can’t start, the Jaguars will go with backup Chad
Henne against the Chiefs.
