Chad Henne should end up serving as the Jaguars' backup quarterback behind Blake Bortles. Suffice to say, Henne isn't expected to play unless something happens to Bortles. Keep him off Fantasy rosters.
The Jaguars and Henne agreed to a two-year, $8 million contract Thursday, Rand Getlin of NFL Network reports. Henne hasn't taken a snap since the midpoint of Week 3 during the 2014 season, but his experience under offensive coordinator Greg Olson provides the Jaguars with an insurance policy for Blake Bortles.
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.
