Despite running back Maurice Jones-Drew's contract hold out, the Jacksonville Jaguars have to be pleased with the way their preseason has gone thus far.
Blackmon made his preseason debut against the New Orleans Saints, catching four passes for 48 yards in the Jags' tight-fought victory over New Orleans, 27-24. Gabbert completed 12 of 16 attempts against the Saints defense, two of those completions going for touchdowns.
Gabbert, Blackmon and the rest of the Jaguars will have a much tougher test in store come Thursday night's showdown with the Baltimore Ravens in Baltimore at 8 p.m. The Ravens will look to corral running back Rashad Jennings, who has shined in Jones-Drew's absence, rushing for 118 yards in two contests.
