The Blaine Gabbert era may finally, mercifully be over. The team announced that starting quarterback Blaine Gabbert will be out in week two against the Oakland Raiders with a laceration on his hand. The news means backup Chad Henne will once again be called upon to fill in for Gabbert.
Blaine Gabbert will not play this week due to laceration on his hand. #Jaguars

The fact is, the current regime inherited Blaine Gabbert, and with a weak quarterback market, they had little choice but to roll with the former tenth overall pick. In his third season, Gabbert has yet to develop into the franchise quarterback the team had been looking for when they drafted him, and suddenly, it seems that Chad Henne has a golden opportunity to steal the job.
To be realistic, Chad Henne isn’t a guy we expect to wow us throughout the regular season, if he does indeed take and hold the Jaguars’ starting job. By all accounts, he’s not a quarterback...
