Jags waiting see how this thing goes at QBs

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. Jacksonville Jaguars coach Doug Marrone isnt quite ready to name Chad Henne his starting quarterback.

Or Blake Bortles, for that matter.

Marrone said Saturday he wants to see how this thing goes over the next few days before deciding who will start against Carolina in a preseason game Thursday night.

Marrone opened up the teams quarterback competition after another inconsistent performance from Bortles, the third overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.

Bortles was 8 of 13 for 65 yards in a loss to Tampa Bay. All four of Bortles drives ended with punts. He has led the offense to three points in six possessions in the preseason.

Henne is 11 of 16 passing for 183 yards, with a touchdown. The 10th-year pro should have had another score, but rookie Keelan Cole dropped a would-be touchdown pass in the second quarter against the Buccaneers.

Marrone said Bortles and Henne split starter repetitions Saturday.

The biggest question now is whether the Jaguars can even stick with Bortles. Marrone and Coughlin clearly have concerns about his ability, and benching him could be another blow to his confidence.

Plus, the team picked up the fifth-year option in his rookie contract and could be on the hook to pay him $19 million in 2018 if he sustains a significant injury this season.

Regardless, the Jaguars are hoping demoting Bortles prompts him to play better.

You dont make it this far if youre not a competitor, veteran tight end Marcedes Lewis said. If youre a competitor, youre going to respond to it like you should and make it very, very hard for the people up there making the decisions.

Marrone said he has not been part of any conversations about bringing in another quarterback. The Jaguars also have second-year pro Brandon Allen on the roster.

For now, the competition is between Henne and Bortles.

Thats the situation in which coach felt like he needed to do something, receiver Marqise Lee said. Thats the situation that the quarterbacks got to handle. As far as making decisions like that, its not my job. Im going to sit back and wait. At the end of the day, I believe in all three quarterbacks and having a possibility to come out and doing the things that we need to do in order to get the Jaguars going.

Notes

With K Jason Myers struggling in the preseason, the Jaguars brought in veteran Dan Carpenter and Patrick Murray for workouts Saturday. Carpenter spent nine years with Buffalo (2013-16) and Miami (2008-12). Murray has played with Tampa Bay (2014) and Cleveland (2016). Rookie WR Dede Westbrook, who caught six passes for 131 yards against Tampa Bay, sat out practice with lower-body soreness.
