Jaguars QB Blaine Gabbert already ruled out for Week 2; QB Chad Henne will start

Jaguars quarterback Blaine Gabbert @BlaineGabbert entered Sunday's game with a right-hand injury and he left the game early because of one, too. But they aren't related. This newest injury has nothing to do with the thumb that Gabbert fractured during the preseason. Instead, Gabbert lacerated his hand late in the fourth quarter and needed 15 stitches to close the cut. Head coach Gus Bradley said Monday that Gabbert won't play this weekend against the Raiders. Chad Henne will start in his place.

Fantasy Analysis:

I am not a Chad Henne fan -- are there any out there? -- but I think he's better than Gabbert, who completed about 45 percent of his passes and threw two interceptions in Week 1. Henne's presence should mean better games ahead for Cecil Shorts @CecilShortsIII and Maurice Jones-Drew @Jones_Drew32. Bradley said he's "hopeful" that Gabbert will return for Week 3. Take your time, Blaine.

I'll be a fan of Chad's before I would be a fan of Gabbert's... I drafted Shorts under the impression Chad would take the starting job. Shorts had very good numbers with Chad last season. This week against Oakland may be the only time I use him if Gabbert comes back.
