Though the team says the move was planned before the game, it does nothing to end the speculation that Blake Bortles' starting job could be jeopardy, especially in the wake of his performance against the Bucs.
Reinhold Matay/USA TODAY Sports Henne threw two passes in his one drive in the first half, both of which were dropped in the end zone by Keelan Cole and Allen Robinson .
Despite saying the starters would play just the first half, Jaguars Coach Doug Marrone sent the first-team offense back on the field with Henne to start the third quarter.
Marrone told ESPN at halftime that he did this because he was upset with the entire offense's performance, emphasizing he felt all 11 players struggled and not just Bortles.
The Jaguars did not bring in any quarterbacks in the offseason to compete with Bortles and instead planned on building the offense around the run game, which is why the team drafted Leonard Fournette fourth overall.
