Rookie QB Gabbert Likely to Start Jacksonville’s Preseason Opener

It looks more likely that Jaguars rookie quarterback Blaine Gabbert will start Thursday night against the Patriots. Starting quarterback Davd Garrard says he will not risk aggravating his back by playing.

“I want to be ready tomorrow,” Garrard told Tania Ganguli of the Florida Times-Union. “I can’t try to force myself out there and set myself back again.”

“If it means missing the first preseason game, unfortunately it means missing the first preseason game,” Garrard said.
