He led the Jaguars to one touchdown and a field goal in five possessions with a lot of conservative throws.
Henne was sacked three times, the offensive line didn't open much space in the run game (31 yards, not counting a fake punt), there were three penalties and Keelan Cole dropped a deep pass.
That half was essentially what the Jaguars will get from Henne: some safe throws, a pass batted down at the line of scrimmage and a good deep ball.
That might be good enough to make Henne the team's starting quarterback when the regular season begins in Houston on Sept. 10.
He has thrown 27 touchdowns passes and 16 interceptions but has taken only one regular-season snap since he was benched in favor of Bortles at halftime of Week 3 in 2014.
