Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley announced Thursday that quarterback Blaine Gabbert will start Friday night's preseason game against the Miami Dolphins, according to NFL.com's Gregg Rosenthal.
Blaine Gabbert and Chad Henne are competing for the Jaguars starting quarterback job. They are listed as co-starters on the team's depth chart, however, considering the investment the Jaguars made when they selected Gabbert with the 10th overall pick in the 2011 draft, it is very difficult to imagine that Henne would win the competition, unless he plays overwhelmingly better than Gabbert.
Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew is a healthy scratch for tonight's preseason game with the Miami Dolphins. Coming back from a lisfranc injury that cut his 2012 season short, Jones-Drew has been able to stay healthy through training camp thus far. The Jaguars are just proceeding on the side of caution with their most potent offensive player.
