Jaguars QB Gabbert sprains ankle in practice
Tuesday, July 30, 2013
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blaine Gabbert is nicked up again.
Gabbert sprained his right ankle during training camp practice Monday and left the field on a cart. He was seen walking around the facility in tennis shoes and without a limp about two hours later. Coach Gus Bradley called it ''a freak deal. ''''He got up and he walked off, and that's a good thing, '' Bradley added.
Since the Jaguars have Tuesday off, the team says Gabbert will be evaluated over the next 48 hours before determining whether he can practice Wednesday.
''Our mentality is we've got to move on, '' Bradley said. ''The next man up. Obviously we care about Blaine and we want him to get back and hopefully it's nothing serious, but as the mentality of the team it gives an opportunity for the next guy to step up and we just move forward. ''
Gabbert played his entire rookie season in 2011 with a nagging toe injury. He missed the final six games last season after injuring his right forearm. He also played through a torn labrum in his non-throwing shoulder.
