Although Blaine Gabbert’s lacerated throwing hand is expected to keep him out of the Jaguars’ game next week in Seattle, coach Gus Bradley wasn’t quite ready to name Chad Henne the starter after the 19-9 loss to Oakland on Sunday.
“We’ll see,” Bradley said. “We’ll evaluate where Blaine is after this week.”
Henne was 25 of 38 for 241 yards and one touchdown.
Gabbert missed practice last week after needing 15 stitches to close the gash he sustained against Kansas City. Henne avoided any turnovers and posted the Jaguars’ first touchdown of the season — a 13-yard throw to tight end Clay Harbor with 2:53 remaining. Henne was sacked five times. This week's matchup is a brutal one against Seattle, however.
