Jaguars quarterback Blaine Gabbert leaves game against Rams with hamstring injury

Anwar S Richardson

Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blaine Gabbert has been the poster boy for futility this season. Okay, Gabbert has been pretty bad throughout his NFL career.

Gabbert has been dreadful, and he entered Sunday’s game against the St. Louis Rams with five interceptions and no touchdowns. He threw a touchdown pass to receiver Justin Blackmon in the first quarter, but settled back into playing like himself.

However, Gabbert left the game with a hamstring injury and has been replaced with backup Chad Henne.

Gabbert sustained the injury in the third quarter while attempting to scramble on a passing play. He limped back to the sideline and was replaced by Henne on Jacksonville’s next possession. Gabbert completed 9-of-19 passes for 181 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions before his injury.

While today marked the return of Blackmon after a four-game NFL suspension, Luke Joeckel left the first quarter an ankle injury, while Gabbert is currently on the sidelines. Joeckel’s injury hurts Jacksonville more than Gabbert’s, but everything continues to go wrong for Jacksonville this season.

Jaguars, former Bucs quarterback Josh Freeman is only a four-hour drive away from Tampa.
