Jaguars QB Blaine Gabbert Still Having Forearm Issues
Jaguars quarterback Blaine Gabbert suffered a labrum tear in his non-throwing shoulder last season against the Oakland Raiders, but played a bit through the injury before finally going on injured reserve and going under the knife to fix the issue. The labrum situation with Gabbert seems to be healing fine going forward, but there is also an issue with the nerves in his forearm, according to Ryan O'Halloran of The Florida Times-Union.
"A current issue for Gabbert is his right forearm - which a league source said was a nerve injury that didn't require surgery," O'Halloran writes in the paper. "He is expected to be 100 percent later this spring."
With Gabbert being a right-handed quarterback, nerve issues in his forearm could become a concern going forward. The extent of what the issue is wasn't fully disclosed, but if it effects anything regarding Gabbert's grip on the football it could be an issue going forward.
O'Halloran mentions the issue should be gone by the time training camp and such gets started, but it will be something to monitor going forward.
