Jaguars QB Blake Bortles questionable vs. Titans Thursday

Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles has a sprained right foot and is questionable to play Thursday night against the Tennessee Titans.

According to the Florida Times-Union, Bortles was still wearing a walking boot Monday, a day after he was sacked eight times in a 20-12 loss at Baltimore.

The Jaguars called Bortles’ injury a mid-foot sprain, the same injury that has sidelined leading rusher Denard Robinson for the final three games.

The Jaguars said Bortles has to improve through rehab over the next couple of days. Jaguars coach Gus Bradley was clear that it isn’t a given Bortles will be able to play against the Titans.

If Bortles can’t go, Chad Henne would start. Henne started the first two games before giving way to Bortles, the third overall pick in May’s NFL draft.

Bortles has completed 61 percent of his passes for 2,676 yards, with 10 touchdowns and an NFL-high 17 interceptions. He has been sacked 46 times. The seventh one Sunday, a 10-yard loss on a third-down play early in the fourth quarter, left him with a mid-foot sprain.

The Jaguars have given up 62 sacks in 14 games, one shy of the franchise record set in 2001. They have allowed at least four sacks in five consecutive games, including 19 over the last three weeks.

There’s no one thing causing all the breakdowns. The offensive line, which is starting two rookies and a second-year player, has been at fault regularly. But running backs and tight ends have failed to pick up blitzes, and Bortles has held the ball too long at times, too.

Head coach Gus Bradley indicated Monday that Bortles was causing a lot of the offense’s self-inflicted issues, saying the biggest thing he needs to address in the offseason is speeding up his decision-making process.

With Bortles struggling, so has Jacksonville’s offense. The unit has two touchdowns in the last four games. Bortles’ numbers are down the last month, and he doesn’t have any completions over 35 yards in the last four games.

    You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter
    to be actually something which I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complicated and very broad for me. I am looking forward for your next
    post, I will try to get the hang of it!

    Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it
    to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She
    placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab
    inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!
    LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had

    Howdy this is kinda of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use
    WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.

    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding knowledge so I wanted to
    get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would
    be greatly appreciated!
