Jaguars | Blaine Gabbert sprains thumb

Updating a previous report, Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blaine Gabbert (thumb) suffered a sprained right thumb in the second quarter of the preseason game against the New York Jets Saturday, Aug. 17.

Fantasy Tip: That clears up why he was removed near the end of the first half. The injury occurred when he banged his throwing hand on a defensive player's helmet on a follow through. He is battling Chad Henne for the starting quarterback job. The winner of this battle is best used as a third fantasy quarterback option.
