Bucs QB Blaine Gabbert suffers left shoulder injury on scramble
Blaine Gabbert exited the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ preseason game against the Cleveland Browns on Friday night after suffering a left shoulder injury.
Gabbert scrambled for a first down on a 3rd-and-5 play early in the third quarter. He dove to the ground after picking up the first down and immediately knew something was wrong. He began calling for a trainer to come out and treat him.
TV cameras later showed Gabbert walking off the field with a towel over his left hand/wrist area as he held his arm stiff.

The Bucs TV Network later reported that Gabbert had suffered a shoulder injury. They showed him on the sidelines with his arm in a sling.
Gabbert was 4/5 for 33 yards in the game. He had one rush for eight yards.
Gabbert, a 2011 first-round pick by the Jaguars, is in his first season with Tampa Bay after signing with them in March. The 29-year-old is second on the Bucs’ depth chart behind Jameis Winston. Ryan Griffin and Nick Fitzgerald are the other quarterbacks the team has in camp, though Fitzgerald is currently dealing with an injury.
