After playing his first game with a torn labrum in his non-throwing shoulder Sunday, Jacksonville Jaguars' starting quarterback Blaine Gabbert was feeling pretty good, according to our Jaguars site Big Cat Country.

While talking with the media on Monday, Jaguars' head coach Mike Mularkey gave an update on Gabbert's injury situation after his first game playing with the shoulder injury. Gabbert injured his shoulder in Jacksonville's overtime loss against the Oakland Raiders on Oct. 23.

Mularkey didn't give much information to reporters, saying the second-year quarterback had normal soreness following the game:

"He's got the normal soreness of the game. He took some hits again. Everybody is sore after games. There's nobody excused from that."

Gabbert had his best game of the season for the Jaguars Sunday, throwing for 303 yards and a touchdown on 27-of-49 passing, but he did grimace and take a little longer than usual after being hit. Mularkey was happy with some of the decisions that Gabbert made, but he also said that there were some things Gabbert could improve on with his decision making:

"He feels good. Actually I met with him this morning on a couple of things to talk about his improvement. I thought he took a step forward with some of the throws that he made, some of the down the field throws. Some of the other ones I think we could have also made. Those are things in his progress that we've got to keep up with."
