JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Former Missouri Tigers quarterback Blaine Gabbert will start for the Jacksonville Jaguars Thursday night, when they play their preseason opener against the New England Patriots. 

Gabbert, who was drafted with the 10th overall pick in April, will be starting in place of injured Jaguars Veteran David Gerrard. Gerrard injured his back during practice last Thursday, and was ruled out by coach Jack Del Rio for the preseason opener.
