Gus said second quarter for Bortles and maybe early third.â Ryan O'Halloran (@ryanohalloran) August 7, 2014
NFL Media's Albert Breer reported that the Jags are sticking to their script with the rookie signal-caller, who will only see second-team reps against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Chad Henne will take all the first-team snaps.
As Ryan O'Hallaran of The Florida Times-Union pointed out Thursday, Bortles has taken zero snaps with the first-team offense during any offseason work.
Despite the caterwauling from those outside the organization to give Bortles a chance to learn on the job, the Jags have stuck to their plan to sit the rookie -- at least to start the season.
If Bortles continues to play well in training camp and during his preseason opportunities, management will have a much harder time keeping him behind the humdrum Henne.
