Jaguars expect QB Gabbert to play at Colts


Jacksonville Jaguars coach Mike Mularkey expects quarterback Blaine Gabbert to play Sunday at Indianapolis.

Gabbert injured a glute muscle in Sunday's 27-7 loss to Houston. Tests Monday revealed no significant damage, although Mularkey says Gabbert probably will be limited in practice Wednesday.

Gabbert completed 7 of 19 passes for 53 yards, with a touchdown and no interceptions. He was sacked three times. He injured his glute in the first half, but played into the fourth quarter before giving way to Chad Henne.

Mularkey adds that he does not expect linebacker Daryl Smith (groin) to play against the Colts. Running back Rashad Jennings (knee), right tackle Cam Bradfield (ankle) and guard Eben Britton (ankle) have a chance to return after sitting out Sunday's game.
