Jaguars quarterback Blaine Gabbert made an early exit from Sunday’s overtime loss to the Raiders, with an injury to his non-throwing shoulder.

Per a source with knowledge of the situation, Gabbert will have an MRI on Monday. For now, it appears that no bones are broken.

He was in considerable pain. The decision to hold him out was driven largely by the uncertainty as to his condition.

In Gabbert’s absence, Chad Henne completed nine of 20 passes for 71 yards. Which isn’t the kind of performance that will create a quarterback controversy, even for the 1-5 Jags.

Next Sunday, the Jaguars travel to Green Bay.
