Will Bortles Get First-Team Reps Against Bucs?
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.
