11/20/14 - QB Blake Bortles practiced in full Wednesday with a left wrist injury.
11/05/14 - QB Blake Bortes (sprained left wrist) practiced in full Wednesday.
11/02/14 - QB Blake Bortles has played well in flashes this season, but he needs to limit mistakes. With a chance to get the Jaguars back in the game in the fourth quarter in Cincinnati, Bortles fired an interception in the end zone while attempting to throw the ball away. He finished with 247 passing yards with two touchdowns and an interception. Bortles now has a league-leading 13 interceptions on the season.
10/26/14 - QB Blake Bortles continues to learn on the job in his rookie season with the Jaguars. In his six games, five as a starter, Bortles has had his ups and downs. He's had a passer rating in the 80s in three games, but has also had three games of less than 60.0. The Jaguars had hoped to have him watch and learn from the sidelines this year, but inserted him in the third game of the season and he's played every snap since then. He finished 18-of-34 for 221 yards, but threw two costly interceptions that were returned for touchdowns, bringing his passer rating down to 58.6. "It's been a big learning experience," he said. "There's been a lot of different situations, a lot of different looks that I'm now seeing multiple times. I make different decisions rather than the decision I made the first time. That's something that I guess is a positive. So I've just got to try and continue to do things like that."
10/19/14 - QB Blake Bortles had five runs for 37 yards to add another dimension to the Jaguars' ground attack on Sunday. Bortles wishes he had made a sixth run. He was still blaming himself for a poor decision on his third interception of the game when the Jaguars were marching for a score in the third quarter. They had the ball at the Cleveland 14 when Bortles, who looked like he was going to take off on another scramble, pulled up and fired the ball toward Cecil Shorts, only to have Browns defender Buster Skrine step in front of Shorts for an interception. "I should have just tucked it and ran," Bortles said. "I stepped up, the protection was really good. Instead of trying to do something stupid like that, just tuck it and run. Get the first down and if not, then get a field goal and go up by seven."
