The Jaguars' quarterback controversy may take another turn as Jacksonville hosts the Carolina Panthers for the third preseason game Thursday night.
Jacksonville is looking to find the team's starting quarterback and Chad Henne and Blake Bortles will need to impress at EverBank Field.
The Jaguars are coming off a frustrating 12-8 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Panthers lost to the Tennessee Titans, 34-27, on Saturday.
Panthers quarterback Cam Newton is set to see the field for the first time this preseason for the Panthers. He underwent rotator cuff surgery earlier in the offseason.
Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey will also return to the field. He will make his preseason debut against Carolina.
