But when Gabbert recovers from a Grade 2 hamstring strain sustained in a loss at St. Louis on Sunday, Jaguars Head Coach Gus Bradley said the third-year veteran likely again will be the team’s starting quarterback.
Gabbert is week-to-week, according to Bradley, but isn’t expected to play Sunday.
“Most likely he is out this week,” Bradley said Monday, a day after the Jaguars’ 34-20 loss to the Rams at the Edward Jones Dome.
Asked if Gabbert would start when healthy, Bradley replied, “Right now, that’s my thought.”
Gabbert completed 9 of 19 passes for 181 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions Sunday and left the game in the third quarter with a hamstring injury.
The Jaguars (0-5) will visit Denver (5-0) Sunday.
