Jacksonville coach Gus Bradley has apparently seen enough of quarterback Chad Henne. Bradley announced on Monday that Blaine Gabbert will return to his role of starting quarterback in Week 4 when the Jaguars host the Colts.

Gabbert suffered a laceration on his right hand in Week 1 in the fourth quarter of Jacksonville's 28-2 loss to Kansas City. The deep cut required Gabbert to get 15 stitches on his hand. The injury kept Gabbert from playing in Jacksonville's Week 2 and Week 3 games against the Raiders and Seahawks.

Henne served as the Jaguars starting quarterback while Gabbert was out, but apparently did nothing to prove that he should keep the job. In the two games he started, both Jacksonville losses, Henne averaged 238 yards passing and threw one touchdown along with two interceptions.

Gabbert hasn't been much better for the Jaguars though. Gabbert finished 16 of 35 for 121 yards in his only start this season against the Chiefs and also threw two interceptions. Gabbert's Week 1 performance marked the 13th time Gabbert has started a game and failed to reach 150 passing yards, the Jaguars are 3-10 in those games.
