Jaguars QB Gabbert sprains ankle

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blaine Gabbert is nicked up again.

Gabbert sprained his right ankle during training camp practice Monday and left the field on a cart. He was seen walking around the facility in tennis shoes and without a limp about two hours later.

Coach Gus Bradley called it ``a freak deal.''

``He got up and he walked off, and that's a good thing,'' Bradley added.

Since the Jaguars have Tuesday off, the team says Gabbert will be evaluated over the next 48 hours before determining whether he can practice Wednesday.

``Our mentality is we've got to move on,'' Bradley said. ``The next man up. Obviously we care about Blaine and we want him to get back and hopefully it's nothing serious, but as the mentality of the team it gives an opportunity for the next guy to step up and we just move forward.''

Gabbert played his entire rookie season in 2011 with a nagging toe injury. He missed the final six games last season after injuring his right forearm. He also played through a torn labrum in his non-throwing shoulder.

One of his teammates caused the latest injury.

Veteran guard Uche Nwaneri stepped on Gabbert's ankle while trying to move to pick up a stunting defensive end. Gabbert fell to the ground and then slammed his helmet against the grass in frustration.

``I take pride in protecting the quarterback,'' Nwaneri said. ``So you never want to see that happen.''

Before the collision, Gabbert was having one of his better days in camp. Two days after a rough practice that included several botched snaps, Gabbert completed 11 of 15 passes in 11-on-11 drills Monday.

Chad Henne, who is vying with Gabbert for the starting job, completed 5 of 10 passes.

If Gabbert can't practice Wednesday, rookie Matt Scott and third-year pro Mike Kafka could get extra repetitions. Neither has gotten much work during the first four days of training camp.

``Training camp is always one of the times when injury bug can really cost a team,'' Nwaneri said. ``We're definitely cognizant of the fact that getting guys hurt can really hurt a team. You've still got to go out and play.''
