Blaine Gabbert | QB | San Francisco 49ers
Posted: 5/4/2014 5:26pm et
The San Francisco 49ers have decided not to pick up the fifth-year option in QB Blaine Gabbert's contract.
Huddle Up: Yeah, that wasn't happening with Gabbert brought in to be no more than a backup project.

The San Francisco 49ers have acquired QB Blaine Gabbert from the Jacksonville Jaguars for a sixth-round draft choice.
Huddle Up: Gabbert's run in J'ville last 3 seasons, and the 10th overall pick of the 2011 draft posted a 5-22 record in 27 starts, throwing 22 TD passes and 24 interceptions. He'll be a backup in San Fran, while the door is now open for the Jags to spend another high draft pick on QB.

Jacksonville Jaguars general manager David Caldwell said he wants QB Blaine Gabbert to return in 2014. "I talked with Blaine (Monday) and told him he's a Jaguar and we'd like to have him back," Caldwell said. "He's under contract and he has made great strides this year. He wants to be back. That says a lot about Blaine, and we're just taking it day-by-day and we'll go from there."
Huddle Up: Sorry, Jaguar fans.

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blaine Gabbert (hamstring) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 25, and is probable for Week 8.
Huddle Up: Gabbert is good to go again for the Jags, but the team is sticking with Chad Henne as the starter for now even though he hasn't been able to get the team into the win column either.

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blaine Gabbert (hamstring) has been cleared for full practice Wednesday, Oct. 23.
Huddle Up: Chad Henne has been holding down the fort in Gabbert's absence; going forward, fantasy owners of Cecil Shorts and Justin Blackmon might prefer that Gabbert stay sidelined so tweak their rest-of-season values accordingly.

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blaine Gabbert (hamstring) is dealing with a Grade 2 hamstring strain and will at least miss the team's Week 6 game against the Denver Broncos. QB Chad Henne will make his third start of the year against the Broncos. Head coach Gus Bradley continues to say that Gabbert is still the team's starter, however.
Huddle Up: Just going by the numbers, Henne has accounted for 2 of the Jaguars' TD passes and only 2 of the team's 9 interceptions and is the winless squad's best option at QB.

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blaine Gabbert (hamstring) may miss an extended period of time after suffering a hamstring issue. There is no timetable on his return though.
Huddle Up: This is excellent news if you are a Cecil Shorts and/or Justin Blackmon owner. Yes, Blackmon scored a long touchdown with Gabbert at the helm, but blind squirrels and such...

Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley said Sunday, Oct. 6, that QB Blaine Gabbert will be the starting quarter in Week 6 if he is healthy.
Huddle Up: Gabbert exited the Jags' Week 5 loss with a hamstring injury, but unfortunately for the fantasy owners of Justin Blackmon and Cecil Shorts it sounds like if healthy he'll be back in the lineup.

Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley said he's sticking with QB Blaine Gabbert. Gabbert threw three picks in Week 4, but Bradley said some of the mistakes were caused by receivers breaking off routes.
Huddle Up: Bradley's new, so it makes sense for him to want to see enough of Gabbert to determine if he's Jacksonville's quarterback of the future. But you have to believe he's nearing that point.

Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley said QB Blaine Gabbert (hand) will return as the team's starter in Week 4.
Huddle Up: Chad Henne had a 2-week audition to see if he could grab hold of the job, but he threw for only 476 yards and one TD in 2 losses, and the Jags really don't have anything to lose going to back to the 10th overall pick in the 2011 draft.

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blaine Gabbert (hand) was limited in practice Friday, Sept. 20, but he has been ruled out for the Week 3 game against the Seattle Seahawks.
Huddle Up: Chad Henne will draw the start against Seattle's defense. Good luck to him.

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blaine Gabbert was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Sept. 18.
Huddle Up: Gabbert, Chad Henne... does it really even matter at this point? Especially with the Jags heading to Seattle in Week 3.

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blaine Gabbert (hand) likely will not play in the team's Week 3 game, according to head coach Gus Bradley. 'As of right now, we don't anticipate we'll have him on Sunday,' Bradley said. Gabbert is expected to have 15 stitches removed from his hand this week.
Huddle Up: With Chad Henne starting in Week 2, the result was the same: A double-digit loss and a game-long offensive struggle. The passing game, however, did take some small strides from Week 1 -- such as actually finding the end zone -- and if you're somehow counting on a J'ville pass-catcher for fantasy purposes, Henne is the QB you want in there right now.

Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley said QB Blaine Gabbert (hand) will not play Week 2 because of the hand injury he suffered Week 1.
Huddle Up: We can't tell if this is a good or bad thing for the Jaguars. It probably helps Cecil Shorts.

Updating a previous report, Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blaine Gabbert required 15 stitches to close a wound on his right hand in Week 1. Gabbert said the cut was on the top of his hand.
Huddle Up: Gabbert completed 45 percent of his passes for 121 yards and two interceptions prior to exiting the game due to the injury. No word on his status for this week, be it injury- or performance-related.

Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley said QB Blaine Gabbert (thumb) would not be putting himself in any more risk if he played with his injured thumb Week 1. Bradley indicated Gabbert likely will be inactive if he does not start.
Huddle Up: Gabbert will be a game-time decision. The good news for fantasy owners starting Cecil Shorts is there's very little drop-off between Gabbert and backup Chad Henne.

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blaine Gabbert (thumb) was listed as a limited participant in practice Friday, Sept. 6, and he is listed a questionable for the Week 1 game against the Kansas City Chiefs. Head coach Gus Bradley said a decision on Gabbert's status might come in pre-game warmups Sunday, Sept. 8. If Gabbert cannot go, QB Chad Henne would get the starting nod.
Huddle Up: The Jags have been giving Gabbert every chance to show he's ready, but with the QB still limited this late in the week, it's not looking good. Check back Sunday in The Huddle's Game-Day Inactives, Injury & Weather Report, but either way, the rest of the team's offensive skill players shouldn't be affected much -- if at all -- by the QB situation.

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blaine Gabbert (thumb) was limited to individual drills during practice Monday, Sept. 2, and his status for Week 1 is uncertain at this point. Gabbert said his thumb felt uncomfortable while he was throwing during practice but knows he will have to deal with pain if he plays Week 1. He said he will start taking snaps under center and shotgun snaps during practice Wednesday, Sept. 4.
Huddle Up: What's scary is a healthy Gabbert hasn't been all that good -- 21 TDs, one 100-yard passing game in 24 career starts -- let alone now that he's dealing with a bum thumb. Take this into consideration when assessing the fantasy prospects of any passing-game-associated Jags you own.

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blaine Gabbert (thumb) said Tuesday, Aug. 27, that he is 'still on schedule' to play in the regular season opener Sept. 8 against the Kansas City Chiefs. He hasn't practiced or gripped a football since Aug. 17, and he will have to play with pain if he is to start in Week 1. The team has targeted Wednesday, Sept. 4, as the return date for Gabbert.
Huddle Up: Gabbert has won the starting job in Jacksonville, but it's on unsteady terms to be sure given his current thumb issue and his spotty track record. Don't be surprised if Chad Henne makes a start or 2 before Columbus Day arrives.
