New, comments

The Jaguars rookie quarterback was favoring his wrist towards the end of the 33-23 loss, but it doesn't look serious.

The Jacksonville Jaguars lost 33-23 to the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday, and afterwards quarterback Blake Bortles had to have his wrist looked at by team trainers.

According to Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union, Bortles had his throwing wrist looked at after the game, but it shouldn't be anything that will put the team in jeopardy of losing him for next week's game against the Dallas Cowboys in London.

It's not known which play Bortles hurt his wrist, but thought to be towards the end of the game, possibly the game-ending sack by Bengals defensive end Margus Hunt.

Bortles finished the day 22-for-33 for 247 yards, two touchdowns, and one interceptions. He also added 10 rushing yards on four carries.
