Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blaine Gabbert says that he will help the team however he can despite not starting this weekend.

Blaine Gabbert has said that he will look to help the Jacksonville Jaguars however he can as backup quarterback.

The 24-year-old was named as the team's starter during the pre-season, but thumb and hamstring injuries have allowed Chad Henne to replace him.

Gabbert told the team's official website: "I haven't practised. That's tough when Chad has played well. My job right now is to help any way I can, to be the best teammate and the best leader I can.

"If that's to go out and give the best look [to the first-team defense] this week, that's what I'm going to do. Every day I have to get reps and practise at a high level.

"It's a week-to-week thing. It's my job to go out there and prove that I can stay healthy and prove I can play at a high level to make it hard on the coaches."

The Jaguars face the San Francisco 49ers at Wembley this Sunday.
