Jaguars announce QB Blake Bortles will start Thursday night


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/18/2014) Jaguars rookie quarterback Blake Bortles, who was questionable with a mid-foot sprain, will start Thursday night's game against the Titans, the team announced. It will be Bortles' first primetime appearance.

Bortles made a quick recovery from the injury, but how effective he'll be remains to be seen. He's thrown 10 touchdowns against 17 interceptions. Tennessee will start quarterback Charlie Whitehurst following injuries to Zach Mettenberger and Jake Locker.

Jacksonville is favored by 3.5 points -- the first time it has been favored in 43 games.


Report: Jags QB Blake Bortles expected to start Thursday


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/17/2014) Despite being listed as questionable, Jaguars rookie quarterback Blake Bortles is expected to start Thursday's game against the Titans, reports the Florida Times-Union. Bortles will try to play through a mid-foot sprain that had him in a walking boot earlier this week.

He's thrown just two touchdown passes in his last five games. Chad Henne would start if Bortles can't play.


Blake Bortles' foot improving faster than expected


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/16/2014) Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles' recovery from a mid-foot sprain is going faster than the coaching staff expected, head coach Gus Bradley told the Associated Press. Bortles reportedly moved well at Tuesday's practice ahead of Thursday's game against the Titans.

Bortles still is considered questionable to play.


Jags want Blake Bortles to speed up decision-making process


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/16/2014) Jaguars offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch said rookie quarterback Blake Bortles should spend the offseason studying so that he'll make quicker decisions in 2015, reports the Florida Times-Union.

"Speeding up the decision making will come from knowledge," Fisch said. "This offseason, he has to be in a constant quest for knowledge. When we're not together for those X amount of months that we're not allowed to see one another, he has to make sure that he is studying our offense. So, that when we come back together and when we can meet, we can then start talking about defenses.

"Because if we have to start over and just talk about our offense for those next three months, then the decision making process won't get sped up. We'll go back to not being able to focus in on the all the little tips and reminders that defenses can give us. So that's where his focus will be. I think if he does that and he just owns it now we can do a great job of giving him indicators that will help him play fast."

Bortles (foot) is questionable for Thursday's game against the Titans. He's accounted for 10 touchdowns and 18 turnovers in 12 games.


Jaguars' Blake Bortles fails to find the end zone Week 15


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles failed to find the end zone Week 15 against the Ravens.

Bortles completed 21 of 37 passes for 210 yards. He did not throw any touchdowns, but did toss an interception. Bortles was under constant pressure during the contest, taking eight sacks. The Ravens pass rush played a big role in the game, as Bortles had to settle for short, safe passes. He averaged just 5.7 yards per completion due to the pass rush. Bortles also had 2 rushing yards. Bortles injured his foot at some point during the contest. He was spotted after the game wearing a walking boot. 

He'll look for more Week 16 against the Titans.


Jaguars QB Blake Bortles dealing with ankle, shoulder injuries


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/1/2014) Jaguars coach Gus Bradley told reporters that rookie quarterback Blake Bortles suffered a left ankle sprain and shoulder inflammation during a Week 13 victory over the Giants. He underwent an MRI on Monday, which came back clean, according to ESPN.

Bortles completed 21 of 35 passes for 194 yards and one touchdown against New York. He led the team in rushing with 68 yards on the ground in a 25-24 win.

Bradley told reporters Bortles will practice this week leading up to Sunday's game against the Texans.


Blake Bortles craters in Week 12 loss at Indy


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2014) On his first pass Sunday, Jaguars rookie quarterback Blake Bortles threw well behind tight end Marcedes Lewis and Colts corner Vontae Davis intercepted. Things didn't get much better for Bortles, who finished 15 of 27 for 146 yards and no touchdowns.

Bortles took four sacks and fumbled once, though Jacksonville recovered. Bortles has zero touchdowns and two interceptions over his last two games.

He'll play the Giants in Week 13.


Jaguars QB Blake Bortles held without TD by Cowboys


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/9/2014) Jaguars rookie quarterback Blake Bortles entered Sunday having thrown at least one touchdown pass in five of his six starts this season. But even though he threw for 290 yards against Dallas, none were taken to the house.

Bortles was forced to play catch-up throughout. The biggest gain was a 53-yarder to Cecil Shorts that was basically a short pass and long run. He added a 32-yarder to Shorts early in the fourth quarter and finished 22 of 37 for 290 yards and a late interception.

He will not throw for any yards next week - the Jaguars are on their bye.


Blake Bortles extends interception streak Week 9


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/2/2014) Jaguars rookie quarterback Blake Bortles made it seven straight games with an interception in the Week 9 loss at Cincinnati. Bortles was fortunate to only get picked off once, as the Bengals dropped at least two.

Bortles finished 22 of 33 for 247 yards and two touchdowns, both to Allen Hurns. In each case, Hurns adjusted to a badly underthrown pass. The second-half scoring tosses went 40 and 18 yards. Late in the fourth quarter, Bortles threw into double coverage and was picked off in the end zone.

Bortles rushed four times for 10 yards after running for at least 37 yards in each of the previous three games.

Bortles has accounted for eight touchdowns and 14 turnovers entering Week 10 against the Cowboys in London.


Jaguars' Blake Bortles picked off twice in defeat to Miami


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles was picked off twice in a disappointing Week 8 outing against the Dolphins.

Bortles was picked off by Louis Delmas, who took it back 81 yards for a Miami touchdown in the second quarter. Brent Grimes picked off Bortles in the third quarter and also took 22 yards for a touchdown. His only bright spot of the afternoon was a 48-yard touchdown pass to Allen Robinson late in the fourth quarter.

Bortles compiled 221 yards through the air while completing 18 of 34 pass attempts. He added a touchdown and two interceptions, registering a 58.6 passer rating. He was sacked four times and rushed for 48 yards on six carries in a 27-13 defeat.

Bortles will look to bounce back Week 9 at Cincinnati.


Learning curve too steep for Blake Bortles


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) The potential for greatness is there with Blake Bortles. The physical tools are all there, and he shows the actual skills every Sunday, in fits and starts. However, after five starts, it is pretty clear the rookie just isn't going to get there this season.

Bortles turned the ball over three more times in Week 8 against the Dolphins, giving him 13 in five and a half games. It was probably his worst game yet as a professional, as he logged just one garbage-time touchdown and completed a career-low 52.9 percent of his pass attempts for 221 yards.

The good news for Bortles' long-term Fantasy value is, he looks like a legitimate weapon in the running game. His per-game average of 31.8 rushing yards comes out to 500-plus over 16 games and would have put him in the top-5 among all running backs a year ago. Once he figures out how to harness his talents in the passing game, his ceiling could be very, very high.

The Jaguars' offense surrounding Bortles is young as well, so extended stretches of malaise are to be expected. In a keeper league, there might still be room on your roster for Bortles, but there is little reason to think he will provide value this season -- the learning curve is proving too steep. 


Sweet outweighs sour Sunday for Jaguars QB Blake Bortles


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles had a Jekyll-Hyde Sunday against the Browns, but the bottom line was his first career victory.

Bortles completed 17 of 31 passes for 159 yards and a 31-yard touchdown pass to Allen Robinson late in the second quarter that gave his team the lead for good. But he also fired three interceptions to increase his season total to 10. The last of the trio was picked off in the red zone.

The rookie was 0 for 2 in the first quarter before finding the range. But the team stayed mostly on the ground down the stretch - he threw just five passes in the fourth quarter.

Bortles and the Jaguars will try to run with their momentum in Week 8 against Miami.


Blake Bortles still tough to rely on


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/16/2014) Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles put together his first 20-Fantasy point effort last week, and will try to build on that in Week 7 against the Browns.

Bortles racked up a career-high 336 yards through the air and 38 on the ground last week, and will look to carry that momentum into Sunday's game. However, the Browns have mostly held their own against quarterbacks this season, allowing just one game with more than 20 Fantasy points, to Charlie Whitehurst in Week 5.

Bortles is very much a work-in-progress, as evidenced by his seven interceptions in three and a half games. Though he showed what kind of upside he has last week, he remains too risky to start outside of deeper, two-QB leagues at this point. 


Blake Bortles looking to turn things around vs. slumping Titans


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/8/2014) The Titans had a solid pass defense last season, as they allowed a league-low 15 passing touchdowns, and looked to be continuing that trend through the first three games of the season, when they allowed just two scores through the air. However, things have fallen apart over the last two games, which could open a chance for Blake Bortles to succeed in Week 6 for the Jaguars.

The Titans have been gashed for 64 Fantasy points by opposing quarterbacks over the last two games, and that isn't all because of Andrew Luck. Though Luck put up 37 points against the Titans, Brian Hoyer followed it up with 27 in Week 5, passing for three touchdowns and just one interception. Bortles has had a predictably rough introduction to the starting role, but the Titans seem vulnerable at this point.

Bortles fell apart last week, tossing two interceptions without a score en route to a measly 3 Fantasy points. However, he is talented enough that a breakout game seems likely at some point. Though he is not a dependable option, Bortles might be worth rolling the dice on in two-QB leagues. 


Jaguars' Dwayne Gratz still not cleared from concussion


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/6/2014) Jaguars cornerback Dwayne Gratz has yet to be medically cleared from a concussion, Gus Bradley told the media on Monday, per the team's official website. The team should know more about his status on Tuesday or Wednesday leading up to Week 6 at Tennessee.

Blake Bortles too unreliable at this point


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) Jaguars rookie quarterback Blake Bortles' talent is undeniable, but his introduction to the NFL has not gone smoothly, as he tossed a pair of interceptions for the third straight game to open his career in Week 5 against the Steelers.

Since entering Week 3's game against the Colts in the second half, Bortles' production has fallen off in each successive game. He has gone from 9.29 yards per attempt and two touchdowns in his relief work to just 5.31 yards per attempt and no scores Sunday. He was hurt, yet again, by some drops from the receiving corps, but continues to hurt himself with poor decisions.

Questionable decision making is to be expected from a rookie quarterback, but that doesn't excuse it. The Jaguars have some good young talent around Bortles, but this offense is very much a work-in-progress still, especially with a nonexistent running game. Though Bortles is owned in 36 percent of CBSSports.com leagues right now, it is hard to see him being worthy of starting in Week 5, even against a Titans defense that just allowed three touchdowns to Brian Hoyer. 


Jaguars QB Blake Bortles still searching for first career win


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) Jaguars rookie quarterback Blake Bortles threw two interceptions during a 17-9 loss Week 5 vs. Pittsburgh. Bortles, who was making his second career start, completed 22 of 36 passes for 191 yards, while rushing for 14 yards on four carries.

He has three touchdowns and six interceptions in three games played this season. The Jaguars are back in action Week 6 at Tennessee.


Blake Bortles tosses one touchdown Week 4


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/28/2014) Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles tossed one touchdown Week 4 against the Chargers. 

Bortles completed 29 of 37 passes for 253 yards and a touchdown. He threw two interceptions during the contest. Bortles didn't have a ton of opportunities for big plays. Though he did throw completions of 30 and 44 yards, Bortles averaged 6.8 yards per attempt. It didn't help that Bortles lost wide receiver Cecil Shorts during the second half. Bortles also had 24 rushing yards during the contest.

Bortles will look for more Week 5 against the Steelers.


Blake Bortles gets his shot Week 3


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles got his shot Week 3 against the Colts. 

Bortles entered in the third quarter, and provided the offense with some spark. It didn't come at first, though. Bortles was able to lead the team to a field goal in his second drive, but threw his first interception on the next drive. He would toss his first touchdown pass in the fourth quarter. Bortles found Allen Hurns on a 63 yard reception for the score. He would throw another interception, which would be returned for a touchdown, but bounced back with another score before the game ended. 

Bortles finished 14 of 24, with 233 yards. He threw two touchdowns and two interceptions. After the game, it was announced Bortles would be the starter Week 4 against the Chargers. 


Chad Henne removed after struggling Week 3


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) Jaguars quarterback Chad Henne was pulled in favor of Blake Bortles Week 3.

Henne completed 4 of 7 passes for 33 yards. He averaged just 4.7 yards per attempt. He did not throw any touchdowns or interceptions. With the team down 30-0 at the half, Henne was benched in favor of Bortles. 

Henne will take on a backup role Week 4 against the Chargers. 


Jaguars haven't changed stance -- Chad Henne still starting QB


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/17/2014) The Jaguars confirmed again Wednesday veteran Chad Henne will remain the team's starting quarterback heading into Week 3 against the Colts. It comes two days after coach Gus Bradley said during his Monday press conference Henne will remain the starter.

The calls for rookie quarterback and first-round pick Blake Bortles have been loud following a 0-2 start for Jacksonville.


Jaguars not looking to change QB


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/15/2014) Jaguars quarterback Chad Henne will remain the team's starter for Week 3 against the Colts, head coach Gus Bradley announced during his press conference Monday.

Henne had a rough go of it in a 41-10 loss to Washington Sunday, but received little help from his offensive line as he was sacked 10 times in the game. At least for the time being, it looks like Blake Bortles is not expected to get a chance for the 0-2 Jaguars. 


Chad Henne sacked 10 times in losing effort


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) Jaguars quarterback Chad Henne took a beating in Sunday's 41-10 loss in Washington in Week 2.

Henne was sacked 10 times in the game, as the offensive line consistently collapsed around him. He ended up completed 14 of 28 passes for 193 yards in the game, including one touchdown, a 63-yard strike to Marcedes Lewis. He was also intercepted once, and added 17 yards on three carries in the loss.

Henne has passed for 459 yards while completing 53.5 percent of his passes, with three touchdowns and one interception. The Jaguars next game is set for Sunday against the Colts in Week 3. 


Chad Henne named Week 1 starter


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/23/2014) Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley is sticking to his plan, at least for now. He has named Chad Henne the starting quarterback for Week 1 at Philadelphia, according to the Florida Times-Union. The announcement came following Friday's preseason game against Detroit.

Henne led his team to only one scoring drive (field goal), and took a backseat to rookie Blake Bortles late in the first half. The rookie worked with the first unit and orchestrated a scoring drive (field goal) before half time.

Bortles made an impressive throw to Allen Hurns for a 28-yard gain. He followed it up with a 30-yard completion to veteran tight end Marcedes Lewis. After halftime, he hooked up with Hurns for a 13-yard touchdown, his first touchdown of the preseason.

Bortles compiled 158 yards through the air while completing 10 of 16 passes. He added a touchdown and no interceptions, registering a 116.1 quarterback rating. He has 435 passing yards through his first three preseason games.

Henne completed 9 of 14 pass attempts for 70 yards. He was sacked twice and finished with a 76.5 passer rating. Through three preseason games, Henne has passed for 230 yards.

Chad Henne to get slightly more work than Blake Bortles


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/20/2014) Jaguars coach Gus Bradley anticipates quarterback Chad Henne playing "a quarter and a half" Friday at Detroit and rookie Blake Bortles taking over for another quarter, reports the Florida Times-Union. Despite Bortles' impressive preseason, the Jaguars plan to start Henne during the regular season.
