Gabbert Placed On IR, Henne Climbs Depth ChartBlaine Gabbert suffered an injury to his left shoulder against the Houston Texans. Early in the game he was sacked and went down hard. After losing the football and landing awkwardly on his shoulder, Gabbert’s season was turned upside down.Gabbert has been far from spectacular this season. Upon being injured however, one Chad Henne was. Henne took the field on short notice, against one of the league’s best. He kept a presumed blowout competitive.Not only were the Jaguars hanging with the Texans, they were leading them most of the day. The contest was decided in overtime after each team made a field goal. Houston would become the first team to ever score twice in OT.The question going forward: Can Henne keep it going?I think not.Henne and the Jaguar offense completed six plays of 20+ yards. A number of these plays were flukes. Sure, you can count on sir Cecil Shorts III to make some plays with the ball in his hands, but these insane numbe...

Blaine Gabberts season comes to an end

The Jacksonville Jaguars have placed quarterback Blaine Gabbert on season ending IR.  Gabbert left Sunday’s game in the first quarter with what was stated as an elbow contusion. Gabbert’s replacement, Chad Henne, provided a spark for the Jaguars who eventually fell to the Houston Texans 43-37 in overtime and fell to 1-9 for the season.  Henne’s performance may have sealed...

Jaguars place Blaine Gabbert on injuried reserve

Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blaine Gabbert’s season is over. The team placed the second year player on injured reserve following a forearm and shoulder injury that occurred in a game against Houston on Nov. 19. Chad Henne, who took over following the injury, will quarterback the team for the rest of the season. Henne finished the game with 354 yards passing to go with four...

Jaguars place Gabbert, Robinson on IR

The Jacksonville Jaguars have placed quarterback Blaine Gabbert and receiver Laurent Robinson on injured reserve, ending their season. Gabbert hurt his right forearm in Sunday's loss at Houston. Chad Henne replaced him and threw for 354 yards and four touchdowns. Gabbert also has a torn labrum in his left shoulder that needs surgery. The Jaguars (1-9) figured it would be better...

Backup quarterbacks are useful in evaluating young guns

This weekend, the Houston Texans nearly dropped a game to one of the worst teams in the NFL. It was an offensive shootout with little defense to speak of from either team, and the Texans emerged from overtime with the victory. The other story line that came from the Texans near-miss was the possible end of the Blaine Gabbert era in Jacksonville. After leaving the game early with...

Did the Jaguars find their franchise QB last week? Week 12 preview.

The Jaguars were trying to develop Gabbert into their QB of the future.  Did Chad Henne throw a wrench in the works? After going a red hot 13-1 in week 11, I went 2-1 on Thanksgiving day.  For the season that makes it 106-57.  I'm still in striking distance of .750 for the season. Let's take a look at week 12. Minnesota at Chicago - The Vikings are coming off their...

Which Chad Henne will the Jaguars get?

Chad Henne was named the starter in Jacksonville this week, after Blaine Gabbert injured his shoulder again as well as a contusion on his throwing elbow. Henne was going to start no matter the prognosis of Gabbert’s health, but since Gabbert went on IR, there was no other option. Henne had a great performance after he came in, throwing for 354 yards and four touchdowns. By...

Coach: Henne could win starter's job

Jaguars coach Mike Mularkey said that if quarterback Chad Henne performs well over the remaining games this season, he will be the presumed starter heading into 2013.

Chad Henne could be the Jaguars’ starter heading into 2013

Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Mike Mularkey made it clear that if quarterback Chad Henne plays well during the final six games of the regular season, he’ll likely be their starting heading into next season. Mularkey says if Henne plays well over final 6 games, he will be starter going into next season. #Jaguars — Mark Long (@APMarkLong) November 21, 2012 It doesn’t look...

Bills Injury Report: Fred Jackson, Chris Kelsay Expected to Return

The Buffalo Bills are expected to have running back Fred Jackson and defensive lineman Chris Kelsay back this weekend when they take on the Indianapolis Colts. Jackson, who was out last Thursday against the Miami Dolphins due to a concussion, is expected to return today for the Bills. As of Monday the running back hadn’t completed all of his concussion protocol, but he was...

Bills Will Start C.J. Spiller Against The Colts

Bills head coach Chan Gailey told reporters that even though Fred Jackson has been cleared following a recent a concussion, C.J. Spiller will get the start against the Colts this weekend, via BuffaloBills.com. “C.J. will start, but we’re still going to play Fred,” said Gailey. “It takes two. It does. So Fred will get quite a few snaps, but C.J. will start and get the majority...

RotoWire NFL No. 2 Quarterbacks

The bye weeks finally ended, but at quarterback, matchups are still key for two-QB leagues. There are no major injuries outside of a few concussed quarterbacks who could return soon, and there are plenty of lower-tier passers performing admirably enough to warrant use. For those players, recent trends are more important than their body of work, so rolling the dice on a hot Chad Henne...

Jacksonville Jaguars: Week 12 NFL Power Rankings (#32)

Last week: 32 (+0) Record: 1-9 It’s still neck and neck for them and the Chiefs. I don’t know if it really matters. They both suck. I think it will take one team winning to show any separation between them and I don’t see that happening. Gabbert has been put on IR with elbow and forearm problems, but it really just seems like a convenient way for Mike Mularkey to get Chad Henne...

Kansas City Chiefs: Week 12 NFL Power Rankings (#31)

Last week: 31 (+0) Record: 1-9 I used to think the Chiefs were better than the Jaguars, but I don’t really think there’s any difference between the two now that Brady Quinn is going to be the Chiefs’ starting quarterback; in fact, the Jaguars might even be better if Chad Henne can establish himself as clearly better than Gabbert (he had a great game last week, but he’s known...

Enemy Intelligence: Jacksonville Jaguars

  Pillowfight! The Titans, coming off by far their best performance of the year, take on the Jacksonville Jaguars at EverBank Field on Sunday. The Jaguars lost last week to the Houston Texans, 43-37 in overtime, to fall to 1-9 on the season. Jacksonville took a 34-20 lead early in the fourth quarter on a long touchdown pass from Chad Henne to Justin Blackmon, blew that lead...

Always Be Covering: I Miss Thanksgiving

“Oh great, it’s the day after Thanksgiving.” -No sane person, ever. Yesterday: 1-2 Last Week: 2-2 Overall: 34-32-1 Oh god, 364 days until we get to do that again? Bullsh*t. I’m making stuffing once a week and nobody can stop me except for the obesity the crippling obesity that’s surely coming. /wheezes So as far as I remember… Houston had to go to overtime, RGIII completely...
