Re: Jacksonville Jaguars 2012 Thread
Interesting things happening with Jags in last week. Gabbert had been nursing a shoulder injury on his non-throwing shoulder. He then sustained a nasty forearm injury on his throwing arm early in the Texans game. The nature of that injury has never been made exactly clear. I heard on "Jaguars this week" that he will see a baseball doctor for that. (Maybe it's Dr. K)
But Chad Henne came in and sparked the Jags to a near upset of the Texans. On Monday Coach Mularkey announced that Henne was the starter this week based on performance and not because of Blaine's injury. On Tuesday Jordan Palmer (QB) was seen in town, and Wed Gabbert was placed on IR.
So.....if Jags knew that Gabbert had to go on IR, why not just say he's hurt and therefore Henne would start? Instead they specifically said it was based on performance. One day later a replacement is seen in town and Gabbert goes on IR 2 days later. There's a lot of speculation that as soon as he was demoted, Gabbert said "screw it, I'll have surgery now". No one knows for sure.
