RTC: Is Gabbert's schedule ambitious?
By Paul Kuharsky
Reading the coverage of the Jaguars ...
A doctor uninvolved in Blaine Gabbert’s case thinks the Jaguars’ timetable for his recovery from a thumb fracture is too ambitious, says Ryan O’Halloran of the Florida Times-Union.
To which I say: The countdown to him being ready to practice for the opener against Kansas City starting on Sept. 4 is on.
The Jaguars cut receiver Mohamed Massaquoi and offensive lineman Jason Spitz, says O’Halloran. They will count for $315,000 in dead money.
To which I say: It’s unfortunate Massaquoi didn’t pan out, but it means good things about Ace Sanders and Mike Brown.
Receiver Cecil Shorts and linebacker Russell Allen are ready to return from injuries, but Luke Joeckel is still troubled by a hip flexor, says Hays Carlyon on the Times-Union.
The Gabbert announcement ended the suspense and started the most important stretch of Gabbert’s career, says John Oehser of Jaguars.com.
Andre Branch’s ineffectiveness in the Jets game was glaring, says Alfie Crow of Big Cat Country.
