Jaguars QB Blake Bortles was 10-of-16 passing for 158 yards and a touchdown Friday night against the Lions. That pushes his preseason totals to 28-of-44 for 435 yards and a touchdown, or a passer rating of 103.9.
Nevertheless, head coach Gus Bradley said after the game that Chad Henne will start the opener, per Ryan O’Halloran of the Florida Times-Union.
Depending how competitive the Jaguars are during Henne's starts will determine how long he holds the job. The writing is on the wall. We expect that Bortles will be under center at some point this season.
