    Jaguars' Gardner Minshew: Could be traded

    It isn't clear Gardner Minshew has a future with the Jacksonville Jaguars, John Reid of The Florida Times-Union reports.Minshew went 1-7 as a starter in his second NFL season, though his passing stats -- 66.1 completion percentage, 6.9 YPA, 16:5 TD:INT -- show a degree of competence that wasn't matched by fellow Jaguars quarterbacks Mike Glennon and Jake Luton. The team is now expected to draft Clemson QB Trevor Lawrence, potentially leaving Minshew to compete with Luton for the backup job. The Jaguars figure to explore trade opportunities this offseason, so it's possible the 2019 sixth-round pick ends up on a new team for his third NFL campaign.

    Jaguars' Gardner Minshew: Won't get Week 17 start

    Head coach Doug Marrone said Wednesday that Gardner Minshew will remain the Jacksonville Jaguars' backup quarterback behind Mike Glennon for the team's Week 17 game in Indianapolis, John Oehser of the team's official site reports.When he met with the media Monday, Marrone left the door open for Minshew to supplant Glennon as the Jaguars' Week 17 starter, but the coach ultimately elected to maintain the status quo after reviewing the game film following Sunday's loss to the Bears. Minshew has outproduced Glennon from a statistic standpoint this season -- 66.1 percent completion rate, 6.9 yards per attempt, 16:5 TD:INT -- but the second-year signal-caller has put up a good chunk of his production in garbage time and clearly isn't viewed as the Jaguars' long-term answer at quarterback. Glennon is set to become a free agent this offseason and may not be retained, but Minshew won't have a clear path to the starting role in 2021 with Jacksonville likely to select a quarterback with the No. 1 overall pick in the upcoming draft.

    Jaguars' Gardner Minshew: Relegated to backup

    Gardner Minshew will act as the team's backup Sunday against the Bears after it was announced Mike Glennon would start the contest, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.Minshew's relatively solid surface numbers against the Ravens last week (75.9 completion percentage, two touchdowns to one turnover) masked what was a quietly toothless Jacksonville Jaguars offense albeit against a difficult matchup. It's not entirely surprising to see the team turn to Glennon as the starter after both quarterbacks split first-team reps throughout the week, but considering the veteran's track record as as a below-average starter at the professional level, it's hard to imagine much will change from an offensive perspective in another difficult matchup on tap for Week 16.

    Jaguars' Gardner Minshew: Competing for Week 16 starting gig

    Head coach Doug Marrone said Gardner Minshew and Mike Glennon will split first-team reps in practice this week before a decision is made on the Jacksonville Jaguars' starting quarterback for Sunday's game against the Bears, John Reid of The Florida Times-Union reports.Minshew took back the starting role after shining in relief of Glennon in the Week 14 loss to the Titans, but the former struggled mightily to move the offense for most of the day in last weekend's blowout loss to the Ravens. Though Minshew only turned the ball over once and finished with a 75.9 percent completion rate, 7.8 YPA and two touchdown passes, most of his production came in the second half during garbage time. As a result, Minshew will be forced to compete for his job once again, but no matter who wins the battle, fantasy managers likely will want to avoid the Jacksonville quarterback situation Week 16.

    Jaguars' Gardner Minshew: Pads numbers in garbage time

    Gardner Minshew completed 22 of 29 passes for 226 yards and two touchdowns with no interceptions during Sunday's 40-14 loss at Baltimore. He also had two carries for nine yards and lost a fumble.The overall numbers don't look bad on the surface, but Jacksonville's offense was unable to get anything going until the second half with Baltimore already leading 26-0. Minshew should retain the starting gig heading into Week 16, though the matchup with the Bears doesn't figure to make things any easier, especially if tailback James Robinson (ankle) is forced to miss any time.

    Jaguars' Gardner Minshew: Back in starting seat

    Coach Doug Marrone said Monday that Gardner Minshew will start Sunday's game in Baltimore, Mark Long of the Associated Press reports.Minshew entered last weekend's loss to the Titans in relief of Mike Glennon early in the second half, completing 18 of 31 pass attempts for 178 yards and one touchdown. The second-year signal-caller's performance has earned him the starting nod for Week 15, but he'll draw a tough matchup on the road in Baltimore.

    Jaguars' Gardner Minshew: Enters game in second half

    Gardner Minshew completed 18 of 31 pass attempts for 178 yards and one touchdown in Week 14 against the Titans. He added two rushes for 22 yards.Minshew entered the game in relief of Mike Glennon, who was benched for poor performance. Minshew played nearly the entire second half and led the Jacksonville Jaguars to their only touchdown of the game. However, as has been typical, Minshew didn't look to push down the field, with his longest completion of the day going for 22 yards. It remains unclear whether Minshew or Glennon will be under center in Week 15 when the Jaguars take on the Ravens.

    Jaguars' Gardner Minshew: Healthy, but not starting

    Head coach Doug Marrone said Wednesday that Gardner Minshew's sprained right thumb is "fine," but the second-year quarterback will serve as the backup quarterback to Mike Glennon in the Jacksonville Jaguars' Week 13 game in Minnesota, Michael DiRocco of ESPN.com reports.Marrone noted that team trainers have informed him that Minshew will be a "full go" in practice Wednesday after his thumb injury prevented him from playing in each of the past four games, but the Jaguars will stick with Glennon at quarterback for now after he turned in a serviceable outing in his first start since 2017 in last week's two-point loss to the Browns. The coach still left the door open for the team's starting quarterback situation to come down to a week-to-week decision, so Glennon's performance against the Vikings will likely dictate whether or not Minshew eventually recaptures the job over the final quarter of the season.

    Jaguars' Gardner Minshew: Not suiting up Sunday

    Gardner Minshew (thumb) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Browns.Minshew was considered questionable for Sunday's contest but won't be available for the fourth straight contest due to the thumb issues. Even if he suited up, the 24-year-old wasn't yet cleared to start and would have served as the backup to Mike Glennon. Instead, Jake Luton will operate as Jacksonville's No. 2 quarterback versus Cleveland. Minshew's return to practice this week potentially puts him in good position to reclaim the starting role against the Vikings next Sunday.

    Jaguars' Gardner Minshew: Questionable for Sunday

    Gardner Minshew (thumb) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Browns, John Oehser of the Jacksonville Jaguars' official site reports.Coach Doug Marrone said earlier this week the 24-year-old won't be ready to handle starting duties this weekend, but he could be available to serve in the backup role to Mike Glennon. Minshew returned to practice as a limited participant this week and was ramping up his throwing, so if all goes well he could return to start at Minnesota next week. Jake Luton is primed to serve as Jacksonville's No. 2 quarterback Sunday should Minshew be unavailable.
