JACKSONVILLE, Fla. Adidas Jonathan Marchessault Jersey . -- After watching Blaine Gabbert take dozens of snaps and throw hundreds of passes this week, the Jacksonville Jaguars still arent ready to declare him healthy enough for the season opener. Coach Gus Bradley listed Gabbert as questionable for Sundays game against Kansas City, adding that the former first-round draft pick probably will be a game-day decision. "Were encouraged with what we saw from Blaine Gabbert," Bradley said Friday. "I thought he took steps in the right direction, but it is too early. It may go all the way up until pregame, until we can get a chance to see him and how he does in that." Gabbert is recovering from a hairline fracture in his right thumb. He missed the final two preseason games because of the injury and has been dealing with pain and a weakened grip. But hes been able to throw with little or no noticeable issues this week, a positive sign he will be able to start against the Chiefs. "He not a hundred per cent and may have some soreness in his hand, but like I mentioned before, it cant get any worse, so he will just have to deal with that little bit of pain," Bradley said. Barring any setbacks, Gabbert expects to play. "I getting more and more comfortable throwing the ball and were just seeing how it feels," he said. "Its kind of a finicky deal, so hopefully its A-OK tomorrow morning. These next 48 hours are big. Give it a little time to rest, and come game time, it should be feeling pretty good." If Gabbert cant start, the Jaguars will go with backup Chad Henne against the Chiefs. Gabbert and Henne have split repetitions in practice, although Gabbert seems to have gotten more later in the week. Gabbert completed 58 per cent of his passes for 1,662 yards, with nine touchdowns and six interceptions last season. He missed the final six games because of a forearm injury. This is a make-or-break season for the former Missouri standout. The Jaguars are giving him every opportunity to prove he can be a franchise quarterback. Gabbert had plenty of excuses his first two seasons, but has running back Maurice Jones-Drew healthy, an upgraded offence line and more experience at receiver. Gabbert wont have receiver Justin Blackmon, who is suspended the first four games of the season for violating the leagues substance-abuse policy, or tight end Marcedes Lewis, who was ruled out because of a calf injury. For Gabbert, though, the biggest thing is being patient with his own injury. "Its just one of those deals," he said. "I dont know. I really cant tell my bone to grow any faster than it is right now, so well see how it is tomorrow." Adidas Pierre-Edouard Bellemare Jersey . PETERSBURG, Fla. Adidas Colin Miller Jersey . However, Jim Popp isnt sure how long hell be able to admire wide receiver Duron Carter. http://www.cheapgoldenknightsjerseys.com/?tag=adidas-chris-thorburn-jersey .com) - Sergio Agueros 63rd-minute goal was enough to lift Manchester City to a 1-0 win over 10-man Manchester United on Sunday at the Etihad Stadium. PHILADELPHIA -- Sergei Bobrovsky stuck it to his former team, then gave his stick a few extra shakes in celebration toward the jeering crowd. Back on familiar ice, Bobrovsky made himself quite at home. Bobrovsky stopped 37 shots for his fourth shutout of the season, leading the Columbus Blue Jackets to their first win in Philadelphia, 2-0 over the Flyers on Thursday night. "Its something special," Bobrovsky said. "Its tough to explain." James Wisniewski and Brandon Dubinsky each scored goals for the Blue Jackets, who were 0-5-1 in Philadelphia since the franchises inception in 2000. Led by Bobrovsky, a former Flyer, the Blue Jackets moved closer to clinching their second-ever playoff berth. They closed within two points of the Flyers for third place in the Metropolitan Division. "Were in a good position," Dubinsky said. "Its not like where we were last year when we had to continue to watch and hope and chase teams. Were right where we want to be." The Flyers have lost three straight games and were shut out for the second straight time. They havent scored a goal in 130 minutes, 25 seconds, dating back to a third-period goal on March 30 against Boston. Flyers coach Craig Berube said the offence simply didnt test Bobrovsky enough, especially in the third. "Weve got to do a better job of getting shots through, get rebounds," he said. Wisniewski snapped a scoreless tie with his seventh goal of the season late in the second period. He finished off a Columbus attack that saw at least three shots on Steve Mason before he was able to slide in the puck with 6 seconds left on the power play. Dubinsky appeared to kick in the puck early in the third to make it 2-0. The Blue Jackets are about as automatic as it gets in the NHL with a lead after two periods: They improved to 27-2-4 with a two-period lead. "Were going to keep climbing," Bobrovsky said. The interesting matchup was the one between the pipes: Mason vs. Bobrovsky. Maason had it all figured out in Columbus when he went 33-20-7 with 10 shutouts and won the Calder Trophy as rookie of the year in 2008-09, the only season the Blue Jackets have made the playoffs. Adidas Tomas Nosek Jersey. But Mason and Columbus could never recapture that fleeting success again. He fell to 20 wins and five shutouts the next season, and bottomed out in 2011-12 with a 16-26-3 mark. Mason lost his job to Bobrovsky, the former Flyer who blossomed into last seasons Vezina Trophy winner. Mason, who had 25 saves, was traded to the Flyers at the end of last season and became the No. 1 goalie after they bought out Ilya Bryzgalovs contract. Bobrovsky was expendable because Bryzgalov signed a nine-year deal and was supposed to anchor the net as Philadelphia chased its first Stanley Cup championship since 1975. Bryzgalovs quirky personality and sometimes brutal honesty with the media didnt always endear him to teammates and he lasted only two seasons. Mason and Bobrovsky are now leading playoff pushes for both organizations. Bobrovsky made 17 saves in the second period and the Blue Jackets defence kept the punchless Flyers out of the zone for most of the third. "We know it means a lot for him to be back here in Philly," Dubinsky said. "When you get traded from a team, it always feels good to go into the building and beat them. He was huge. He gave us an opportunity when we werent at our best in the first." The Flyers need to rediscover their offence over the final games if they want to make any kind of deep post-season run. "I dont think you can start pressing the panic button or anything like that, but we definitely need to get harder, especially in front of their end," forward Scott Hartnell said. NOTES: Flyers D Kimmo Timonen (upper body) returned to the lineup after a one-game absence. ... Bobrovsky has eight career shutouts. ... The Blue Jackets are 3-1 vs. the Flyers this season. ... The Blue Jackets and Flyers have played each other only 15 times.
