Blake Bortles' stellar preseason play won't result in the Week 1 starting job, but it does appear to have the Jacksonville Jaguars reconsidering their stance to park him on the bench for the entirety of his rookie season.
Bradley feels strongly about Henne's play this summer and believes the veteran's "body of work" is more impressive than Bortles' performance to date.
Bortles will begin taking first-team reps in practice this week, though, and Bradley said the rookie could play an entire quarter with the first-team offense next Friday against the Lions.
"We're seeing progress being made," Bradley said.
Bradley emphasized, however, that Bortles' increased practice role is no different than the treatment given to the rest of the team's rookies in the coming week.
Unless Henne gets off to a career-best start, we firmly believe Bortles' rapid development will have the coaching staff reassessing that "redshirt" plan by the end of October.
