QB Newton, WR Samuel to see first game action tonight

QB Newton, WR Samuel to see first game action tonight”

According to the team's announcement, Bortles has only been named the starter for the Jaguars' season opener and was not declaratively named the starting quarterback for the entire season. In five first-half series, Henne went 8 of 14 for 73 yards. Bortles was better, connecting on 12 of 16 throws for 125 yards and a touchdown.

Bortles, who the Jaguars selected with the third overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, struggled during training camp and through his first two preseason games this year.

Blake Bortles is entering his fourth season with the Jacksonville Jaguars and will not be the starting quarterback in their next preseason game. Although he racked up a chunk of his statistics late in lopsided games, there was belief that Bortles would only get better. Chad Henne, the second-string quarterback, has shown a good presence in the huddle and under center this offseason.

OH judge shot, wounded, returns fire
Bruzzese Jr. was shot at the Jefferson County Courthouse and was taken to a hospital via a medical helicopter, WTOV reported . Mavromatis said the judge returned fire with five shots, and so did a probation officer following closely behind the judge.

Bortles twice missed a wide-open Allen Robinson downfield, once throwing well behind his receiver and the second one a couple yards short of an open Robinson.

"I'm really looking to see the game", Doug explained. He also threw an interception that was returned 48 yards and set up a touchdown in the third quarter. I'm just trying to figure out who is going to be that guy in that position that can lead our team.

Bortles played almost the entire second half behind the first-team offensive line, but he was facing the Panthers' backups.

Surgut knife attacker: What we know so far
Surgut, which as a population of about 320,000, is an oil and gas-producing area about 1,300 miles northeast of Moscow. Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS ) has taken responsibility of the attack, the group's Amaq news agency said .

Asked how he thought the quarterback competition would turn out this upcoming week, Bortles said he had no idea. "I think it's a mental thing now". "I think Blake had the ability to extend plays for us, which I think is going to be helpful in what we have to get done". Will one quarterback play the first quarter with the starters and one play the second?

"I kind of look at it the other way". Again obviously you'd like to make the decision quickly, but you want to make sure you make the right decision.

Now he's going to make his 46th consecutive start, and it will come against a Houston defense that has sacked him 24 times in six games - all Jaguars' losses.

A total of 12 tries were scored in an 88-point fixture that exposed some serious deficiencies in the Wallabies defence. All Blacks captain Kieran Read described his side's sublime first-half attacking blitz as "surreal".

Most of the Jaguars' players say they are comfortable with either Henne or Bortles as the starter for the regular season.
