Gabbert jogged off the field in the season opener's final minutes Sunday after suffering the cut, which Bradley told reporters was "severe" enough to rip off a portion of the passer's skin on his right hand, The Florida Times-Union reported.
"It's got to heal, and we need to keep it clean," Bradley said. "The big concern would be with the amount of stitches, that it could re-open and then the chance of infection occurring. We're going to handle that right. Hopefully we get him back next week or after the (Week 3) Seattle game."
Gabbert hit on 16 of 35 passes for 121 yards with two interceptions, but those numbers are deceiving. He was incapable of sustaining drives or generating points in what turned out to be an ugly beginning for the Bradley regime.
Now it's Henne's turn, and he might not leave the lineup if he can move the ball. There's clear commitment in Jacksonville to discover -- once and for all -- what Gabbert is capable of, but not at the expense of winning games.
