Draft Scout News
06/03/16 - QB Blake Bortles talked about how tight he and TE Julius Thomas have become in the offseason. "He's done a great job of wanting and accepting to work together, coming and asking what do I want and what do I like. It's back and forth. I ask him the same stuff. I think that every day that we come out here, he continues to get better. He never drops a ball and has unbelievable hands."
01/03/16 - QB Blake Bortles set a franchise record for completions (355) and passing yards (4,428), surpassing Mark Brunell (4,367 yards in 1996) in the latter category. Bortles entered the season finale with 35 touchdown passes, second-most in the NFL, but was shut out of the end zone.
11/08/15 - QB Blake Bortles threw for a career-high 381 yards on Sunday but it wasn't enough as the Jaguars fell to the Jets, 28-23. Bortles finished 24-of-40 and threw two touchdowns and two interceptions while also rushing four times for 32 yards. He was strip sacked and lost a key fumble in the fourth quarter. Bortles, who had just one 300-yard game as a rookie last season, has thrown for at least 300 yards in three of his last four games. He has also thrown for at least two touchdowns in each of his last four games and six times in eight games overall this season after posting just two multi-touchdown games last season.
10/14/15 - QB Blake Bortles practiced in full Wednesday despite his grade 1 AC joint sprain.
10/12/15 - Jaguars QB Blake Bortles suffered a grade 1 AC joint sprain early against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday.
He played the entire game and threw four touchdown passes for the first time in his career. He was sacked six times.
Coach Gus Bradley said Bortles likely won't practice Wednesday and they will then decide whether he can go Thursday. Bradley said he expects Bortles to play Sunday against the Houston Texans, but it remains to be seen whether the injury will limit his effectiveness or whether he will aggravate it when he is hit.
"I wouldn't be alarmed if he didn't practice Wednesday," Bradley said. "Right now, we think he should be in good shape."
