Henne to start in Week 7 for Jaguars

The Sports NetworkOctober 14, 2013 

Jacksonville, FL (SportsNetwork.com) - The winless Jacksonville Jaguars will start Chad Henne at quarterback again in Week 7.

Henne, who started at quarterback in place of an injured Blaine Gabbert against the Denver Broncos on Sunday, will start again against the San Diego Chargers on Oct. 20.

The 28-year-old Henne also started in back-to-back games earlier this season when Gabbert was out with a lacerated hand. In five games (three starts), the Michigan product has completed 80-of-137 passes for 904 yards, two touchdowns and four interceptions.

Gabbert is dealing with a hamstring injury sustained against St. Louis in Week 5. The Missouri product has connected on 42-of-86 passes for 481 yards, one touchdowns and seven interceptions in three starts this year.

Jaguars coach Gus Bradley did not commit to Henne starting beyond the San Diego game.

"We're just talking about San Diego," Bradley said Monday. "We'll see when Blaine comes back, but right now Chad's our quarterback."
