Found October 27, 2012 on The Jaggernaut:
With less than 24 hours until game time, the Jacksonville Jaguars seem to be unsure about quarterback Blaine Gabbert’s injured shoulder. The Jaguars upgraded John Parker Wilson to the active roster from the practice squad Saturday night, the Associated Press reports. That could be an indication that the team's confidence in Gabbert’s torn labrum in his non-throwing shoulder is wavering.   Gabbert has prepared all week as if he is going to start against the Green Bay Packers, saying he will have to manage the pain. In practice, Gabbert has taken a majority, if not all, of the snaps with the first team offense which shows the coaches were expecting him to play the entire game. But with the addition of JPW to the active roster, Gabbert’s injury could have either gotten worse late in the week or the coaches have lost confidence in his ability to last the entire game.

Gabbert proves doubters wrong

  Blaine Gabbert played a full game with a torn labrum Sunday, and he didn’t just play, he shined.

Quick thoughts on the Jaguars' loss to the Packers

It's always rough to watch the Jaguars lose, but today's loss gave me reason to hope in an otherwise unbearable season. The Jaguars played well, but they were done in by their own mistakes. Last week, the Jaguars would have beat the Raiders comfortably had Blaine Gabbert remained in the game. This week, the Jaguars may have won against a quality opponent if not for a blocked...

Jacksonville Jaguars at Green Bay Packers: Week 8 NFL Pick

Jacksonville Jaguars (1-5) at Green Bay Packers (4-3) So apparently Chad Henne is worse than Blaine Gabbert? I didn’t even know that was possible.

Quarterback Blaine Gabbert was also injured during the game...

Mularkey wants Jaguars to start making 'lay-ups'

The Jacksonville Jaguars are tired of ''missing lay-ups.'' Dropping nine passes. Giving up a blocked punt that resulted in a touchdown. Fumbling in the red zone. They are all simple plays - lay-ups, as coach Mike Mularkey calls them - that the Jaguars (1-6) need to make to help them turn things around. ''The things that are not allowing us to win these...
