Jacksonville Jaguars potential quarterback Blaine Gabbert had a solid performance in Saturday's preseason game against the Jets, completing 13-of-16 passes for 163 yards and a touchdown. But on his final play of the game, Gabbert sprained his throwing thumb.

Last week, Gabbert completed 5-of-10 for 19 yards and threw an interception against the Dolphins. He struggled in practice last week, along with fellow QB Chris Henne. The QBs were so bad that tight end Marcedes Lewis felt compelled to say something to them. From the Florida Times Union report:

"That wasn’t good enough," Lewis said. "That’s not acceptable. In years past, it may have been acceptable and we may have come into the locker room without even mentioning what happened. But mediocrity can’t be accepted."

There's speculation that Gabbert will be the starting quarterback for Jacksonville after Saturday's performance.
