NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Monday that Gabbert heard his hamstring "pop" during Sunday's 34-20 loss to the St. Louis Rams, according to a source. Coach Gus Bradley told reporters Monday afternoon that Gabbert has a "grade 2" hamstring strain and "most likely" will miss the Jaguars' Week 6 game. While Bradley didn't set anything in stone, he did say he views the quarterback's status as "week to week."
It's been another uphill battle for Gabbert this season. The former first-round draft pick has thrown only one touchdown pass with seven interceptions across three starts, posting a league-worst passer rating of 36. Injuries have made the situation even bleaker.
The cycle of sadness goes on in Jacksonville.
