Henne had a rough go of it in a 41-10 loss to Washington Sunday, but received little help from his offensive line as he was sacked 10 times in the game. At least for the time being, it looks like
Henne was sacked 10 times in the game, as the offensive line consistently collapsed around him. He ended up completed 14 of 28 passes for 193 yards in the game, including one touchdown, a 63-yard strike to Marcedes Lewis. He was also intercepted once, and added 17 yards on three carries in the loss.
Henne has passed for 459 yards while completing 53.5 percent of his passes, with three touchdowns and one interception. The Jaguars next game is set for Sunday against the Colts in Week 3.
It might not be long until Blake Bortles takes over at quarterback in Jacksonville.
After completing 12 of 17 passes for 167 yards along with those touchdowns, Henne connected on 12 of 26 passes for 99 yards and a fumble in the second half, leading the Jaguars to no second-half points. He added 8 yards on a rush.
The Jaguars play at the Redskins in Week 2 before hosting the Colts in Week 3. Henne might not be long for the job if he can't rebound quickly.
The Eagles finished last in the NFL a season ago by yielding 298.8 passing yards per game. But the addition of veteran safety Malcolm Jenkins and cornerback Nolan Carroll should improve the secondary.
Henne does not boast the weapons to warrant Fantasy consideration. Featured receiver Cecil Shorts took a step back late last year and rookie Marqise Lee, who was plagued by injury and poor performances in the preseason, is the other starter.
Henne, who finished last season with just 3,241 yards and just 13 touchdowns, could be looking over his shoulder at Blake Bortles, who performed well enough in the exhibition games to warrant consideration for the starting job. His team did not upgrade the talent around him enough in the offseason to make Henne any more than a Fantasy afterthought in 2014.
It's no wonder he's unranked in the list of the top 24 quarterbacks in Week 1 by CBSSports.com senior Fantasy writers Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard.
Henne led his team to only one scoring drive (field goal), and took a backseat to rookie
Bortles made an impressive throw to Allen Hurns for a 28-yard gain. He followed it up with a 30-yard completion to veteran tight end Marcedes Lewis. After halftime, he hooked up with Hurns for a 13-yard touchdown, his first touchdown of the preseason.
Bortles compiled 158 yards through the air while completing 10 of 16 passes. He added a touchdown and no interceptions, registering a 116.1 quarterback rating. He has 435 passing yards through his first three preseason games.
Henne completed 9 of 14 pass attempts for 70 yards. He was sacked twice and finished with a 76.5 passer rating. Through three preseason games, Henne has passed for 230 yards.
