Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blaine Gabbert can rest easy knowing nobody will blame him for what might occur against the Denver Broncos on Sunday.

Jaguars coach Gus Bradley told the team’s official website that Gabbert had a Grade 2 hamstring strain and his quarterback probably will not play.

“Most likely he is out this week,” Bradley told

When asked if Gabbert would start after his hamstring healed, Bradley said, “Bradley replied, “Right now, that’s my thought.” That is not necessarily a solid endorsement, but Bradley does not have many options under center.

Gabbert sustained his injury in the third quarter of Jacksonville’s 34-20 loss against the St. Louis Rams while attempting to scramble on a passing play. Gabbert completed 9-of-19 passes for 181 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions before the injury.

Henne completed 7-of-13 passes for 89 yards and one touchdown off the bench this past Sunday. Henne started in two losses this season (Oakland and Seattle) because Gabbert could not play due to a thumb injury.
