Coach Jim Harbaugh hinted after Sunday's second preseason game that Blaine Gabbert is in danger of losing the 49ers' backup QB job.

"Whoever doesn't turn the ball over will be the backup quarterback," Harbaugh said. Gabbert, of course, has been turning the ball over. He's 11-of-25 passing for 60 yards and two interceptions through two exhibition contests. Third-stringer Josh Johnson did lose a fumble in Sunday's tilt with the Broncos.

Blaine Gabbert completed 3-of-11 passes for 20 yards and an interception in Thursday night's preseason opener versus the Ravens.

It was a horrific 49ers debut for the former No. 10 overall pick, who was acquired from the Jaguars in March. Gabbert threw into double-coverage on his interception and was easily picked off by CB Asa Jackson. The 49ers guaranteed Gabbert $2 million when they traded for him, but the San Francisco Chronicle wonders if the team needs to rethink their No. 2 quarterback plans. Gabbert simply isn't an NFL-caliber player and may be on his last legs in the league.

49ers acquired QB Blaine Gabbert from the Jaguars for a sixth-round pick.

We're stunned the Jags could get even that. Perhaps the biggest first-round bust of the post-lockout era, Gabbert withers in the face of pressure like few in recent memory. That being said, he's now the favorite for No. 2 duties in San Francisco. Colt McCoy is a free agent. If anyone can salvage Gabbert's career, it's coach Jim Harbaugh, but there's no reason to believe Gabbert will ever develop into even a serviceable backup. He just doesn't have an NFL skill-set.

Jaguars GM Dave Caldwell expects Blaine Gabbert to return to the roster in 2014.

Unless this is just GMSpeak, the Jaguars apparently like Gabbert as a backup. "At the very least he’s a very good backup and he’s under contract, so there’s no reason why not to keep him here," Caldwell said. "There’s no downside. ... We would like to have him back. We feel that he’s under contract and he’s made great strides this year. You guys probably haven’t seen a lot of it because it’s been mostly through our practice." Not probably. We definitely didn't see it.
Jan 10 - 4:02 PM

The Florida Times Union expects the Jaguars to either release or trade Blaine Gabbert.

Gabbert seems delusional, however. "I plan on being back and competing for the job," he said. "I’ll be here [April 21] when we start over and go through the offseason program with the same coach." No, Blaine, you probably won't. Gabbert is due a little over $2 million in the final year of his rookie deal and didn't play a single snap after Week 5. Chad Henne will likely return as the Jaguars' backup. The team will address starting quarterback in the draft or free agency.

Blaine Gabbert (hamstring) has been cleared for full practice.

Now the question is if the Jags will ever go back to the No. 10 overall pick in the 2011 draft. Gabbert showed no signs of improvement when active earlier this season, completing 42-of-86 passes (48.8 percent) for 481 yards with one touchdown and seven interceptions. His 36.0 passer rating would be dead last in the league by nearly 20 points if he had enough attempts to qualify. Chad Henne is fully expected to start Sunday's game against the Niners in London.

Blaine Gabbert (hamstring) has resumed practicing in a limited fashion, but isn't expected to be active for Week 7.

Ricky Stanzi will back up Chad Henne against the Chargers. It's possible Gabbert won't return until after the Jaguars' Week 9 bye.

After reviewing the Week 5 game tape Monday, Jaguars coach Gus Bradley was less committal about Blaine Gabbert keeping his starting job when he returns from his "popped" hamstring.

Gabbert has already been ruled out for Week 6 against the Broncos, and Bradley considers him "week to week." Said Bradley of Gabbert's grip on the starting job, "Last week I said he made a lot of good reads and we had to make plays for him. This week, I feel strongly again about Blaine, but there were missed opportunities. He needs to make the passes he does in practice. That’s the next step for him." Gabbert has a 1:7 TD-to-INT ratio on the season.

Blaine Gabbert (hamstring) has been formally ruled out for Week 6.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reported earlier Monday that Gabbert could miss an "extended period of time." Chad Henne will be a low-end QB2 against a Broncos defense that got immolated by Tony Romo in Week 5.
Mon, Oct 7, 2013 03:39:00 PM

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports Blaine Gabbert "heard his hamstring pop" in Sunday's loss, and could be sidelined an "extended period of time."

It's all the same for the Jags, who are still insisting Gabbert will be their starter when healthy, but have to know he doesn't give them their best chance to win. Not that winning is the Jags' primary concern this season. For now, they'll move forward with Chad Henne, and play slightly better football. Henne improves Justin Blackmon and Cecil Shorts' fantasy stock. Gabbert can be safely dropped in deeper two-quarterback leagues. Any time he leaves a game with injury, there's a chance it will be his last NFL start.

Coach Gus Bradley insisted after Sunday's Week 5 loss Blaine Gabbert remains the Jaguars' starting quarterback when healthy.

Gabbert exited with a third-quarter left hamstring injury and didn't return. Against the Rams, Gabbert threw two interceptions, including a pick-six, and fumbled twice while trying to run around the pocket. "We just have to continue to train," said a glass-half-full Bradley. "The challenge is for our guys to play with some freedom." Fantasy owners would rather not see Gabbert play at all.

Blaine Gabbert left Sunday's Week 5 game against the Rams in the third quarter with a hamstring injury and will not return.

The Jags say Gabbert strained his left hamstring. But it's certainly possible they're just trying to avoid embarrassing the inept third-year man by not announcing he's been benched. Before getting "injured," Gabbert was 9-of-19 for 181 yards with one touchdown and two horrific interceptions -- one was returned for a touchdown and the other was in the end zone. He now has one touchdown and seven interceptions on the season, proving weekly that he's a backup in the NFL at best. Chad Henne is on and gives the Jags a far better chance to win.

Coach Gus Bradley said he will stick with Blaine Gabbert as his starting quarterback.

Gabbert's latest humiliation was a 179-yard, three-interception performance in Sunday's 37-3 home loss to the Colts. During his three-year NFL career, he's gone 5-21 as a starter and completed a brutal 53.4 percent of his passes with 21 touchdowns against 22 picks. "I'm staying strong with Blaine because he competed and he's doing what we asked him to do," Bradley said. If the first-year head coach wants to win a game this year, he'll turn back to Chad Henne sooner rather than later.

Blaine Gabbert completed just 17-of-32 passes for 179 yards and three interceptions in the Jaguars' Week 4 loss to Indianapolis.

Gabbert was magnificently awful, cowering in the face of pressure and even reacting to pressure that wasn't there. He perceives it in the pocket, which leads to inaccuracy and a complete inability to generate offensive movement. If the Jaguars want to have a competitive game or two this year, they will quickly turn back to Chad Henne. Jacksonville faces St. Louis in Week 5.
