The Jacksonville Jaguars will host the Bucs Friday in their first preseason game and there is still one question that lingers over Jags’ QB Blake Bortles.
Will he get first-team reps?
According to Pro Football Talk, QB Chad Henne will start the game Friday and the team has not yet publicly announced if Bortles will play with the first-string offense.
We could find out when coach Gus Bradley address the media Thursday, but most signs point to “no.”
It seems that the only player getting a shot at first-string play will be receiver Marqise Lee. The Jags have been pretty vocal about keeping Bortles benched for a year so he can learn as much as possible to be able to start next season.
