The Jacksonville Jaguars will be without quarterback Blaine Gabbert against the Oakland Raiders on Sunday. Gabbert sliced open the back of his throwing hand on a defender's facemask in the final minutes of Sunday's 28-2 loss to Kansas City. He needed 15 stitches after the game, and coach Gus Bradley says he won't be able to practice this week. Bradley says ''it's pretty severe,'' adding the threat of infection is the biggest concern. Bradley says some of Gabbert's skin is missing from his hand. Chad Henne will start against the Raiders, and Ricky Stanzi will serve as the backup. Gabbert completed 16 of 35 passes for 121 yards and two interceptions against the Chiefs, including one Tamba Hali returned for a touchdown in the fourth quarter.
