ong> - Blaine Gabbert has a starting job and a broken thumb.
Gabbert's hand hit a defender's helmet during Saturday's exhibition game at the New York Jets. Before the injury, Gabbert completed 13 of 16 passes for 165 yards and a touchdown -- arguably his best showing in three years.
Gabbert won't need surgery, but he will wear a protective brace while the bone heals.
Gabbert has completed 54 percent of his passes for 3,876 yards, with 21 touchdowns and 17 interceptions. He is 5-19 as a starter.
