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.
