Florida Times Union - [Full Article]

Quarterback Blaine Gabbert needed 15 stitches to close a laceration on his right hand sustained late in the Jaguars’ 28-2 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday.

Replays were inconclusive but Gabbert thinks he hit his hand on another player’s face mask with 1 minute, 20 seconds remaining. He immediately left the game and was escorted to the locker room for repairs.

Fantasy Impact: 

Gabbert said the stitches were on the top of his hand. It was his first game since
breaking his right thumb Aug. 17 against the New York Jets, a game in which he played well and many hoped was a steppingstone to the regular season. But, Gabbert was terrible against the Chiefs. If he can't go, Chad Henne would get the start in Week 2 at Oakland.
