JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Blaine Gabbert is getting another preseason start for the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Coach Gus Bradley named Gabbert the starter Thursday, two days before the Jaguars play at the New York Jets.

Gabbert played the first four series in the team’s exhibition opener against Miami, completing 5 of 10 passes for 19 yards. He had two passes dropped and another one go off a fullback’s hands for an interception.

Chad Henne, who got some work with the first-team offense against the Dolphins, completed 8 of 11 passes for 87 yards.

The Jaguars have rotated quarterbacks throughout training camp, giving each work with the starters while trying to figure out who will win the job. Many believe it will be Gabbert, who’s younger, more mobile and coming off an injury-shortened second season.
