Blake Bortles out of boot, expected to start - [Full Article]

Blake Bortles is out of his boot.

That’s a step in the right direction in terms of the Jaguars’ rookie quarterback playing Thursday, which Jedd Fisch believes Bortles will do.

Fisch, the Jaguars’ offensive coordinator, said while Bortles did not participate in the team’s light work on Monday evening, he is preparing as if Bortles will play and start against the Tennessee Titans Thursday.

“As far as I know, it’s going to be Blake,” Fisch said Tuesday as the Jaguars (2-12) prepared to play the Titans (2-12) at EverBank Field Thursday at 8:25 p.m.

“We’re going to obviously see how he practices. He did not participate (Monday), so we’ll have to see how he does today, then see how it looks today and tomorrow.

“The plan right now is to see how he feels.”

Fantasy Impact: 

The Titans are ranked 19th in allowing fantasy points to QBs. Even in what is an OK matchup on paper, it's tough to trust Bortles even as a QB2 if this is your fantasy final, but it's looking like he's going to be able to play.
