Slumping Jaguars sticking with QB Blaine Gabbert
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Despite a six-game losing streak and more offensive ineptitude, the Jacksonville Jaguars are sticking with quarterback Blaine Gabbert.
Coach Mike Mularkey says he has no plans to switch to backup Chad Henne following Thursday night's 27-10 debacle against the Indianapolis Colts.
Gabbert completed 18 of 31 passes for 209 yards, with an interception and three sacks, before leaving the game with a shoulder injury. Gabbert aggravated an injury to his non-throwing shoulder, but Mularkey says he should be fine for next weekend's game at Houston.
And Mularkey adds that the league's worst offense isn't all Gabbert's fault.
He says, "I don't think it's one guy. You always go to that guy. Not in here. Everybody is held accountable for why the offense if not functioning at a high level consistently.''
