Jaguars QB Blaine Gabbert taken to the locker room for a laceration that required 15 stitches.


Blaine Gabbert will be back under center for the Jaguars when they host the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday.

"We feel good about him going into this week," Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley said.

Gabbert missed the last two games with 15 stitches in his right hand suffered in the season opener against Kansas City. The stitches were removed before Sunday's game in Seattle.

Bradley thinks the time on the sidelines has been good for Gabbert.

"I think this has been good for Blaine to see a different side of it," he said.

Gabbert ran the scout team in practices last week and Bradley says he showed real freedom in the sessions.

The Jaguars (0-3) host the Colts Sunday at EverBank Field at 1 p.m.
