Jags stick with Chad Henne at QB
Coach Gus Bradley said Tuesday that Blaine Gabbert would remain on the bench even though he has recovered from a left hamstring strain he suffered against St. Louis on Oct. 6. Henne will remain the starter "right now," Bradley said.
"We'll continue to evaluate that," Bradley said. "That's what we will talk about in [the] personnel [meeting Tuesday night]. We will continue with Chad."
Henne has played in seven games and started five this season and has completed 60.6 percent of his passes for 1,450 yards and five touchdowns with three interceptions. He has started the last three games and thrown for 849 yards with one touchdown and three interceptions.
Gabbert has started three games and is completing 48.8 percent of his passes for 481 yards and one touchdown with seven interceptions, including three that were returned for touchdowns.
He missed the final two preseason games with a fractured right thumb, missed two more games with a severe cut on the back of his hand, and hasn't played since suffering the hamstring injury against the Rams.
The Jaguars (0-8) have a bye this week before playing at Tennessee on Nov. 10.
