Gabbert expects to play vs. Packers

Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blaine Gabbert expects to play Sunday at Green Bay despite an injured non-throwing shoulder.

Coach Mike Mularkey says Gabbert will take all the snaps in practice Wednesday - good news for a team that lost star running back Maurice Jones-Drew (foot) for an extended period.

Mularkey and Gabbert declined to discuss specifics of the shoulder injury or address a report that it was a torn labrum.

Gabbert says ''you're always going to be in pain, whether it's your arms, your legs, knees, neck. That's part of the game. You just have to manage it and deal with it the best you can.''

Gabbert completed 8 of 12 passes for 110 yards and a touchdown before leaving Sunday's game at Oakland. Backup Chad Henne struggled in his place.
