Former Missouri Tiger Blaine Gabbert will remain in his role as starting quarterback for the Jacksonville Jaguars, according to his head coach.

Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blaine Gabbert will continue on as the team's starter, according to his head coach, Mike Mularkey.

Through five games, the former standout for the Missouri Tigers has completed 54.8 percent of his passes, throwing for 796 yards, five touchdowns and three interceptions. Gabbert's quarterback rating to this point is 73.3 as his Jaguars offensively rank last in the NFL in both passing yards (142.8 yards per game) and points scored, at 13 per game.

Though Mularkey said he has no designs on benching Gabbert, he does hope to see improvement going forward.

"The two pick sixes make it look like it's on him. He could have played better as they all could have," Mularkey said in a report. "There are some things that I would like him to do better."

Jacksonville (1-4), coming off a 41-3 loss at home to the Chicago Bears, heads west in Week 6 to take on the Oakland Raiders (1-3) on Sunday afternoon.
