Henne (illness) is active Sunday for the Jaguars' Week 3 matchup with the Ravens, Ryan O'Halloran of The Florida Times-Union reports.

EDGE Analysis

Henne was forced to sit out the Jaguars' final practice of the week Friday after coming down with the illness, but with a day off Saturday to recover, it appears as though the veteran signal caller is ready to reprise his normal role as the backup to Blake Bortles. The Jaguars' decision to keep third-string quarterback Ryan Nassib inactive indicates there isn't much concern about Henne's health.

Henne (illness) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Ravens, John Oehser of the Jaguars' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Henne was a surprise addition to the injury report, although it's likely his illness isn't anything serious. If he isn't able to play Sunday, look for Ryan Nassib to take over as the backup quarterback.

Coach Doug Marrone announced Saturday that Blake Bortles will enter the regular season as the Jaguars' starting quarterback, which means Henne will serve as his backup, Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

The situation was thought to be up in the air as recently as Thursday, so something must have happened to convince Marrone to give Bortles the starting job. Expect him to be on a short-leash however, which means Henne could still potentially find his way to the field should Bortles struggle early.

Coach Doug Marrone said Thursday that Henne may play in the Jaguars' preseason finale with the team's starting quarterback situation still undecided, John Oehser of the Jaguars' official sitereports.

EDGE Analysis

Henne got the start Thursday and played the entire first half, but he didn't perform well enough to definitively secure the starting role. He went eight-of-14 for 73 yards with no interceptions or touchdowns, and he was sacked three times. With Jacksonville's starting quarterback gig still up for grabs, look for Henne and Bortles to get one more shot apiece in the Jaguars' preseason finale against the Falcons.

Henne completed eight of 14 passes for 73 yards and added 14 yards on one carry in Thursday's preseason game against Carolina, leading the Jaguars to 10 points points on five drives while playing the entire first half.

EDGE Analysis

Henne avoided turnovers but needed a 51-yard gain on a fake punt to set up Jacksonville's only touchdown while he was in the game. He also took a trio of sacks despite mostly settling for check downs, though he did toss a 37-yard dime to AllenRobinson to set up a field goal right before halftime. Blake Bortles finished with the better stat line, but he produced two punts and an ugly pick on his first three drives, and then lit it up against Carolina's defensive reserves late in the game. It wasn't a clear win for either candidate, which actually could work in Henne's favor, considering he started Thursday's game.

Henne will start Thursday's preseason game against the Panthers, Ryan O'Halloran of The Florida Times-Union reports.

EDGE Analysis

The majority of the time, whoever starts in preseason Week 3 takes on the same role in the regular-season opener, barring an injury. so Henne supplanting Blake Bortles is notable in this regard. With an adjusted management structure and new coaching staff in place, the Jaguars will instead trust in the veteran presence to make sure the offense is less mistake-prone. For his career, Henne has averaged 199 passing yards per game, while posting a 58:63 TD:INT in 65 games (53 starts).

Henne is now competing with Blake Bortles for Jacksonville's starting quarterback job, John Oehser of the team's official site reports. "It's right up there for grabs, and either person can take it," said coach Doug Marrone after Thursday's preseason game.

EDGE Analysis

Bortles' struggles continued Thursday as the Jaguars mustered just eight points, all of which came in the fourth quarter against the Buccaneers. With that, the Jaguars frustrations with Bortles appear to have reached a boiling point, which leaves the door open for Henne to compete for the starting job. It'd still be surprising for Henne, who went 6-of-10 for 44 yards Thursday, to unseat Bortles as the starter come Week 1, but Marrone's comments Thursday certainly suggest that it's a possibility.

Henne resigned with the Jaguars on Wednesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Henne played in just one game in 2016 and didn't attempt a single pass. He'll be locked in as Blake Bortles' backup once again in 2017, and he isn't likely to see the field unless Bortles is injured.

Henne completed seven of 18 passes for 75 yards and a touchdown, adding five carries for six yards, in Sunday's preseason game against the Bengals.

EDGE Analysis

Henne played the entire second half, leading Jacksonville to a pair of touchdowns on six drives, and eventually kneeling twice to end the game. He doesn't have competition for the No. 2 quarterback job, though the Jags might retain sixth-round rookie Brandon Allen as a developmental project.

The Jaguars and Henne agreed to a two-year, $8 million contract Thursday, Rand Getlin of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

Henne hasn't taken a snap since the midpoint of Week 3 during the 2014 season, but his experience under offensive coordinator Greg Olson provides the Jaguars with an insurance policy for Blake Bortles.
