Jaguars to start Blaine Gabbert on Sunday

The Jacksonville Jaguars are set to turn the keys of their offense over to rookie quarterback Blaine Gabbert, whether he's ready or not. Gabbert will start his first NFL game Sunday against the Carolina Panthers when he'll square off against fellow rookie Cam Newton, according to the Florida Times-Union. Gabbert started a preseason game against the New England Patriots.

In two seasons as the starter at Missouri, Gabbert threw 40 touchdowns with 18 interceptions. The Jaguars drafted him in the first round with the 10th overall pick. For more coverage of the NFL, go to Follow me on Twitter: @RavensInsider
