The Jaguars will attempt to keep getting rookie quarterback Blake Bortles team reps in practice during the regular season, coach Gus Bradley said Sunday.
Bradley said, “We’re still going to still continue to work with him in practice. Probably more aggressive when you consider we’ll try to get him reps in team situations. We’ll still take him off the field and work one-on-one with him. Those things I think you’ll see us aggressively help him along because he has made a lot of progress and we want to make sure that doesn’t slow down.’’
Once the regular season starts, the starting quarterback usually gets all the reps with the offense and the backup quarterback runs the scout team (the opposing team’s offense) against the Jaguars’ defense. The writing is kind of on the wall here that the young Jags likely aren't going anywhere this season, and at some point they'd be wise to see what Bortles can do after watching a few games from the sidelines.
