Chad Henne to start against Broncos

With Blaine Gabbert sidelined with a hamstring injury, the Jaguars will start Chad Henne against the Denver Broncos on Sunday.

When the Jacksonville Jaguars head west to take on the Denver Broncos on Sunday, they'll be starting Chad Henne for the third time this season. Blaine Gabbert has dealt with injuries all season, missing his third start this year and the team will once again turn to Henne for spot duty, and maybe longer.

On the season, Henne has completed just 55 percent of his passes and thrown for 601 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions. In his two starts in 2013 he's thrown for over 200 yards twice, with just a single touchdown and two interceptions.

Henne has a chance to hold on to the starting job longer than he did the first go-round if he plays well, but his play in the preseason and regular season so far have left a lot to be desired, and Gus Bradley doesn't seem ready to slam the door shut on Blaine Gabbert just yet.
