The Jacksonville Jaguars announced on Wednesday morning that veteran quarterback Chad Henne will remain the starting quarterback against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday at EverBank Field. Head coach Gus Bradley seemed as if he left the door open to make a change at the position at his Monday press conference, but it won't be happening to start the game.

The Jaguars also announced that rookie center Luke Bowanko will be starting at the center position, replacing veteran Jacques McClendon who struggled in the first two games of the season. With Cameron Bradfield released on Tuesday and Austin Pasztor's status uncertain for Sunday, Sam Young will also start at right tackle.

While Henne is starting the game on Sunday, one has to wonder if the Jaguars are now at the point where they'll consider a change at the quarterback position during the game against the Colts. With the team actually announcing that Henne will continue to start, it would lead you to believe that consideration to actually start Bortles exists in some degree, so making the switch if the offense continues to struggle.
