JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Blaine Gabbert has a starting job and a broken thumb.

Jacksonville Jaguars coach Gus Bradley has chosen Gabbert as the starting quarterback for the season on Monday. Bradley says Gabbert will miss the rest of the preseason to heal the hairline fracture in his right thumb.

Gabbert's hand hit a defender's helmet during Saturday's exhibition game at the New York Jets. Before the injury, Gabbert completed 13 of 16 passes for 165 yards and a touchdown - arguably his best showing in three years.

Gabbert won't need surgery, but he will wear a protective brace while the bone heals.

Gabbert has completed 54 percent of his passes for 3,876 yards, with 21 touchdowns and 17 interceptions. He is 5-19 as a starter.
