The Jacksonville Jaguars made the move to sign free agent quarterback Landry Jones on Wednesday, after not moving for quarterback depth at the trade deadline. One of the reasons for making that move appears to be with the Jaguars having some concerns about Blake Bortles’ health after Sunday’s loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.

I can’t remember a play where I felt like Bortles would have been injured, but according to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network he is dealing with a left (non-throwing) shoulder injury and it is not expected to sideline him after the bye week.

There were some rumors on Twitter Monday that Bortles had been spotted at the doctor being checked out, but with it being the bye week that could mean anything. Maybe he got a colt making the trans-Atlantic flight or something.

If nothing else, Bortles is tough as nails, so if it’s not a throwing shoulder/arm or leg injury, I wouldn’t expect it to sideline him.
