Despite being listed as questionable, Jaguars rookie quarterback Blake Bortles is expected to start Thursday's game against the Titans, reports the Florida Times-Union. Bortles will try to play through a mid-foot sprain that had him in a walking boot earlier this week. He's thrown just two touchdown passes in his last five games. Chad Henne would start if Bortles can't play.
Jaguars coach Gus Bradley revealed Monday quarterback Blake Bortles will be considered questionable for Thursday's game against the Titans due to a right midfoot sprain. Bortles played all of Sunday's 20-12 loss at Baltimore. If Bortles is unable to play Thursday, Chad Henne would start in his absence. Henne started the first three games for Jacksonville this season.
Jaguars quarterback Chad Henne was pulled in favor of Blake Bortles Week 3. Henne completed 4 of 7 passes for 33 yards. He averaged just 4.7 yards per attempt. He did not throw any touchdowns or interceptions. With the team down 30-0 at the half, Henne was benched in favor of Bortles. Henne will take on a backup role Week 4 against the Chargers.
The Jaguars confirmed again Wednesday veteran Chad Henne will remain the team's starting quarterback heading into Week 3 against the Colts. It comes two days after coach Gus Bradley said during his Monday press conference Henne will remain the starter. The calls for rookie quarterback and first-round pick Blake Bortles have been loud following a 0-2 start for Jacksonville.
Jaguars quarterback Chad Henne will remain the team's starter for Week 3 against the Colts, head coach Gus Bradley announced during his press conference Monday. Henne had a rough go of it in a 41-10 loss to Washington Sunday, but received little help from his offensive line as he was sacked 10 times in the game. At least for the time being, it looks like Blake Bortles is not expected to get a chance for the 0-2 Jaguars.
